The Digitization of SJS is Complete

The last issue remaining to be added to the online collection of the Sino-Japanese Studies journal, 11.1, is now available in the Journal Archive.

Issue 13.2 Added

Issue 13.2 is now available in the journal archive. Some pages from an article from 4.2 and one from 7.2 were fixed.

I hope that some additional security precautions taken in the aftermath of the attack will prevent this in the future.

Volumes 1 & 2, 14 & 15 Online

The PDFs for Volumes 14 and 15 have been added to the journal archive. These PDFs were created directly from the original Word documents and have full searchable text layers, including the non-Roman characters. Volumes 1 and 2 are also online, but these were scanned and OCRed. All the scanned and OCRed PDFs have a […]
