What is the Middle Kingdom Review?

The Middle Kingdom Review (MKR) is a social-science academic journal based in Beijing, China. It was founded in early 2016 by two scholars of Peking University who found that their academic intrigue into contemporary China was not satisfied by the academic status quo in the English language.

China is home to a hugely diverse and nuanced culture, language, society and politics. In this way, it requires equally diverse and holistic approaches in the analysis and understanding of contemporary issues. The Middle Kingdom Review therefore seeks to fill this gap by dedicating itself to publishing innovative and interdisciplinary research articles with an accessible, yet academic, format.

What are the aims of the Middle Kingdom Review?

The Middle Kingdom Review provides for both China experts and novices alike. It aims to bring fresh perspectives of contemporary China across a broad range of academic disciplines.
