The Journal of Chinese Overseas (JCO) is a biannually peer-reviewed academic journal published in English by the Chinese Heritage Centre, Nanyang Technological University Singapore, and Brill under the auspices of the International Society for the Study of Chinese Overseas (ISSCO).* 

The JCO is an internationally cross-disciplinary journal dedicated to promote the study of Chinese overseas. It publishes research articles, empirical reports, theoretical essays, and book reviews on topics and issues relevant to the Chinese overseas and their communities throughout the world. It examines “Chineseness” in its many forms and diverse settings and contributes to diaspora studies, transnational studies, and research on people of Chinese descent and their communities in specific national settings. JCO’s Board of International Advisors and Editorial Board are drawn from multidisciplinary fields as diverse as history, anthropology, sociology, geography, political science, and cultural studies.

Since 2015, the JCO has been listed in the Web of Science New Edition (NE), Emerging Sources Citations Index, and Scopus.  

The JCO welcomes contributions that employ quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods as well as historical and comparative approaches. All manuscripts must be submitted online for peer review at
