The Royal Asiatic Society Hong Kong has published annual volumes of its Journal since 1960. Beginning life as the Journal of the Hong Kong Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society, as of 2004 the title was changed to its present format. The Journal forms one of the most important and widely consulted repositories of primary research on Hong Kong and South China. In 2016 the Journal began to provide bilingual English/Chinese titles, abstracts and keywords to all articles. The Journal is an international, English language journal specializing in studies of Hong Kong and South China in the fields of the humanities and social sciences produced by an Editorial Board and advised by an International Editorial Advisory Committee. We use a blind peer review process. All titles, abstracts and keywords are also translated into Chinese using traditional characters.
