How to publish in this journal


Estudios de Asia y África is a four-monthly Spanish language interdisciplinary journal devoted to the history and cultural, social, political and economic studies of Asia and Africa. It is published by the Center of Asia and Africa Studies of El Colegio de México. Over half the world population live in Asia and Africa, and their cultural, social, political and economic developments through time are of global relevance. These issues are ever more studied from Latin America, Spain and Portugal with often refreshing approaches. Our journal gives voice to the scolars from these parts and from the rest of the world who focus in these areas, seeking to showcase, in Spanish, to a diverse readership, specialized and not, important research products that span from socio-political, gender and environmetal issues of the present to the clasical or cultural history of different regions of Asia and Africa. Estudios de Asia y África runs, next to research articles, notes on current developments and on culture and society, translations of texts in Asian and African languages, review articles and book reviews. Publishing began in 1966 as Estudios Orientales. In 1975, it changed its name to the current one, while following with the same volume and issue numbering. Join the conversation about this journal
