Japan Foundation/BAJS Japanese Studies Postgraduate Workshop 2020: Publishing Your Research   org

The Japan Foundation/BAJS Postgraduate Japanese Studies Workshop is returning for its 8th year and will be held at SOAS, University of London.

The theme for this year is ‘Publishing Your Research’ and will focus on helping participants navigate the world of academic publishing. Throughout the student-focused workshop, participants will be guided both leading scholars and those with insider knowledge of the academic publishing industry. The workshop also provides an excellent opportunity for networking among PhD students and academics, as well as a forum to discuss future collaborations. Organisations will also be presenting their funding programmes and giving details of how they can help.

Student Submissions:

Once registered, we ask students to send in a piece of work that they will be submitting for publication in the future. The work will be shared ahead of the event and feedback on submitted work will be provided by other students and academics throughout the morning session in small groups. The deadline for submissions is 13th January 2020. If you are unsure as to whether your submission would be suitable, please contact Mara Patessio at If you do not want to submit a piece of work, or do not have something to submit, but would like to participate in the event anyway please contact us, and (depending on numbers) we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Travel Grants:

The Japan Foundation is able to offer a partial travel grant of £70 per attendee after attendees have covered the first £20 of their fare. The British Association for Japanese Studies is able to offer £50 per attendee towards the cost of accommodation.


Registration is free and the workshop is open to UK based PhD students who are undertaking research about Japan (including comparative) in humanities and social science subjects.

Should places still be available, registration will be extended to masters students on January 13th.

The final deadline for registration is January 21st.
