AboutAims and scopes

The Asian Dance Journal (ADJ) is a double blind peer-reviewed journal published quarterly by the Society for Dance Documentation and History (SDDH). The SDDH, the largest dance studies society in Korea, was created on March 20th, 2014 as a result of merger between the Korea Society for Dance Documentation and the Society for the History of Korean Dance. Indexed by KCI (Korea Citation Index), ADJ has a global reach with a strength in research on Asian dance and, in particular, its history.

ADJ aims to promote Asian dance studies though interdisciplinary and glocal perspectives on dance and to expand the base of Asian dance culture through communication with Asian Studies and other adjacent academic fields. It also aims to provide a platform for international dance researchers to exchange their perspectives, methodologies, theories, and concerns, and to contribute to the diversity and creativity of international dance research.

In keeping with this aim, the journal seeks to encourage dance researchers in and outside of Asia to explore new discourses and meaningful issues in Asian dance studies, and to introduce trends in Asian dance studies, as part of international dance scholarship.

The journal publishes articles and book reviews on a wide range of topics in the field of dance studies,
as well as in the adjacent fields, such as:
- Dance Documentation and History
- Dance with Interdisciplinary Studies
- Dance Anthropology
- Performing Arts Studies
- Critical Dance Studies
- Diasporic Studies
- Race and Gender studies
- Performance Studies
- Digital and Media Dance

We welcome both theoretical and empirical manuscripts in the above fields. We hope our Journal can be of great value to academic experts, researchers, and students in dance studies, as well as those specialized in dance and performing arts.
