Submission policy

Both emerging and established researchers working the field of Chinese education mobilities are welcome to make a submission. The editor will occasionally consider guests post from other members of the public.

The editorial team invites submissions of around 800-1,200 words on latest research publications and projects in any area of Chinese education mobilities. Proposals and outlines for possible reports are particularly welcome; the role of the editorial team is to provide support and feedback for ideas in any stage of development.

Articles should be well informed, accessible and written in a natural tone.  Submissions must use inclusive and non-derogatory language and may not contain profane, obscene, rude, or illegal material. Authors are responsible for ensuring their work does not violate intellectual property rights. Promotions of goods, services, or financial appeals will not be considered.

Other forms of media such as photos, drawings, or videos are also welcome. In such cases, the editor may recommend including written descriptions or explanations to increase accessibility of the content.

Complete submissions should be about 800 – 1,200 words long and should be sent in Microsoft Word format, with your name in document name.
