The International Journal of Indonesian Studies [IJIS] is a new English language on-line journal. The Journal invites submission of well researched, topical papers of approximately 4000-6000 words in length (excluding citations/references). APA referencing is requested, although exceptions may be possible on consultation.

Intellectual copyright of all materials submitted for publication must be assumed by the author/s. Permission to incorporate materials (photographs, illustrations, tables, graphs etc.) where IP rights are held by people other than the author/s (other than the permitted excerpts of text cited for critical discussion) is the responsibility of the contributing author/s.

The International Journal of Indonesian Studies will mainly focus on ‘early career’ Indonesian academics/researchers, providing a new forum in which to publish their work. IJIS’s coordinating editorial board itself consists of three young, early career Indonesian academics based in Indonesia and Australia, who have experience/links with recently graduated and current postgraduate students from Indonesia and who have been working on an on-going project with universities in Indonesia:

  • Yacinta Kurniasih –  Monash University,
  • Elisabet Titik Murtisari – Satya Wacana University
  • Matthew Piscioneri, Monash University

IJIS’s Advisory board consists of over 20 senior academics drawn from a variety of institutions in Indonesia, the Asia-Pacific Region and around the world. Dr Matthew Piscioneri from the School of Media, Film & Journalism (Academic & Professional Writing), Faculty of Arts, Monash University will act as research writing mentor.

IJIS gratefully acknowledges the support of the Faculty of Arts, Monash University.
