We are delighted to announce the arrival of a new academic journal: Martial Arts Studies:
Martial Arts Studies is a peer reviewed, open access, online, academic journal dedicated to publishing the highest quality academic work on any aspect of martial arts studies. Its aim is to foster the most informed cross-disciplinary discourse on martial arts via the cross-fertilization of perspectives. As such, it encourages interdisciplinarity. The journal publishes both themed and open issues. All contents are subject to peer and editor review. New issues are published every April and October. The first issue of academic articles will be published in October 2015, but other forms of news, announcements and updates will be posted on the site regularly.
