East Asian Science, Technology and Society (EASTS) is an interdisciplinary, quarterly journal based in Taiwan and co-edited by editorial boards in Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, and the West.
Although currently there are several well-established STS journals in the English-speaking world, most are published in North America and Europe and mainly aim at academic readers in Western society. EASTS on the other hand, aspires to coordinate and facilitate networks from Northeast Asian STS communities, and to promote Southeast Asian STS and even expand Asian STS studies into an internationally open and inclusive STS community.
Deadline of the first issue should be at the middle of September, 2006. We are organizing three special issues for the first three issues respectively: the special topic of the first issue is “Citizen Participation in Science and Technology Issues”. Special topic for the second issue is “Colonial Sciences in the Taipei Imperial University”. Special topic for the third issue is “Dr. Hwang’s Controversy in Korea”. But papers with subjects different from these three special topics are also welcomed.
Prospective authors should send their draft contributions electronically, as email attachments, to the Editor-in-Chief, Daiwie Fu: firstname.lastname@example.org , or to our Taiwanese Associate Editor, Chia-Ling Wu , or Korean Associate Editor, Sungook Hong , or Japanese Associate Editor, Togo Tsukahara , or the Associate Editor of the West branch, Warwick Anderson . The Editor in Chief or Assistant Editors will acknowledge the submission.
