Publication Initiative

As part of the core mission of the Engaging With Vietnam conference series to promote new scholarship, we are dedicated to helping conference participants publish their work.

We have published conference proceedings, and we have recently implemented a new initiative in collaboration with the Journal of Vietnamese Studies (JVS), a major international peer-reviewed journal dedicated to promoting original scholarship on and about Vietnam. In particular, we will seek to publish the best papers from this year’s conference in JVS, and we have set up a process to help guide the authors of the best papers towards that goal.

This includes working with the authors in summer workshops in Vietnam to guide the authors in strengthening their papers for peer-review.

Logistical support for the summer workshop in 2018  was provided by University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City, with expertise and mentoring provided by Engaging With Vietnam.

The 2018 initiative is being directed by Jamie Gillen (National University of Singapore), Phan Le Ha and Liam C. Kelley (University of Hawaii at Manoa and University Brunei Darussalam)
