About Kui Xing:

Kui Xing: The Journal of Asian/Diasporic and Aboriginal Literature is a
new online open-access journal sponsored by Chinese Culture University and
produced by Panopticonasia Press in Taipei. Contributions are subjected to
a two-track review process in which all articles go through an initial
screening process and those selected must then undergo a blind review
process. What makes Kui Xing unique is that all articles that have passed
the initial stage are automatically posted online where readership
feedback and anonymous exchange with the author is available.

As an online journal, Kui Xing goes beyond the parameters of traditional
academic journals. The focus of Kui Xing is to create a community where
scholars and artists may come together to share experiences and debate
ideas. Readers may actively participate by joining our Discussion Group
and our Reviewer Workshop. Sections of the website are also dedicated to
invited contributions (both non-fiction and fiction) from celebrated
scholars and authors, articles on how to teach literature, and essays on
the confluence of human rights and the arts. In many ways this is a new
venture, and the editors of Kui Xing are excited by the opportunity to
build a valuable community as well as an internationally respected
