Silva Iaponicarum calls for contributions to the special issue of the quarterly, targeted at masterfs degree students and Ph.D. candidates. Papers from students specializing in Japanese studies and Japan-related social studies who are planning to continue their research career will be especially welcome.

Silva Iaponicarum is a peer-reviewed journal, and therefore having a paper published in the special issue would be a valuable investment in a young researcherfs career, possibly very helpful when applying for various grants, fellowships or a Ph.D. course.

We also recommend that academic supervisors of the potential contributors encourage their students to participate in this special issue of Silva Iaponicarum as well as supervise the upcoming papers.

The deadline for sending the contributions (in English language only) is August 31, 2014. The length of the paper should not exceed 20 standard size pages, including references (ca.  8,000 words).  Footnotes and references should comply with the Silva Iaponicarum editorial standards. We ask you to send your papers directly to Stanislaw Meyer: The required file format is MS Word (*.doc or *.docx).

Best regards
