     Journal of China in Comparative Perspective (JCCP) is the only peer-reviewed bilingual journal for social scientific, humanities and comparative studies of China in the world, published quarterly in Jan, April, July and October in print (ISSN 2040-0837), by CCPN Global from 2014.
     JCCP encourages contributors to put material about China into comparative perspective in JCCP as much as they can. JCCP will not be simply about China (there are already a large amount of excellent China journals). It will be about looking at China from a comparative viewpoint as a player in broader patterns of development, ideas, movements, networks, and systems. Comparison includes taking China as a case study of a generally applicable theory, or drawing analytic conclusions from comparative data about China and some other country or context. The comparison may be regional or global, historical or contemporary, and it may involve a comparison of perceptions, China's perceptions of others and others' perceptions of China in the context of China's encounter with the outside world in the political, economic, military, and cultural sense.
     JCCP publishes original multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary comparative research on China on a wide range of topics within the social and human sciences. It encourages debate, cooperation, or co-authorship on the same issue or theme from different disciplines (including politics, economics, international relations, history, sociology, anthropology, cultural psychology, methodology, among others). Its aim is to bring out the best in scholarship transcending traditional academic boundaries in an innovative manner.
     JCCP also accepts articles which make contrasts between China and non-China, Chinese people and non-Chinese people, academic debates or dialogues between Chinese and non-Chinese. 
     In addition to research articles, research reports, and commentaries, JCCP will also publish periodic symposia on selected topics. Issues of the journal may be organized into themes, and we welcome suggestions for whole thematic issues.
     We also publish Review article and Book reviews for the in-depth review articles on particular areas of scholarship, and reviews of books of unusual quality and significance for the study of China in comparative perspective.
     In order to promote a better understanding between China and world, and the Chinese and non-Chinese people in the field of social sciences we set up an innovative column of Chinese language for social sciences, which is based on the work at China4Clobal for transferring knowledge from a Chinese perspective to participate in shaping a global society.
     JCCP is a strictly non-partisan publication and does not support or discriminate against any political, ideological or religious viewpoint. In accordance with standard academic practice, articles submitted for publication to JCCP are subjected to a rigorous process of blind peer review. Although conceived as an academic journal, the editorial policy is to ensure that articles that appear therein are of interest beyond the academic arena to both policy-makers as well as readers with a general interest in China-related themes.
