Contemporary Japan is an international peer-reviewed journal edited by the German Institute for Japanese Studies Tokyo (DIJ) and published biannually by Routledge (Taylor & Francis).

Contemporary Japan publishes in-depth, original work from all disciplines as they relate to present-day Japan or its recent historical development. Manuscripts which cross disciplinary boundaries and raise larger issues of interest are also welcome. All submissions are peer-reviewed in a double-blind process by established scholars in the field.
