Focus and Scope

EASTM is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of traditional and modern East Asian science, technology, and medicine. Any study based on original research using Chinese, Japanese, or Korean primary sources or artifacts, that elucidates the relationships and interactions of science, technology, and medicine with politics, society, economics, philosophy, culture, religion, historiography, as well as their disciplinary traditions, or throws light on the work of scientists, technologists, and physicians in East Asia will gladly be considered.

In contrast to other journals in the field, EASTM has no page limitations and thus also publishes lengthy articles rich in empirical documentation.
