OrizzonteCina publishes original, rigorous essays that foster a more cogent and widespread understanding of the political system, international relations and socioeconomic dynamics in the People’s Republic of China and the wider Chinese-speaking world. The journal welcomes contributions from established and emerging researchers, with the aim of encouraging dialogue between different disciplinary perspectives. It supports the translation into Italian of articles submitted by international scholars.

OrizzonteCina combines the interpretative tools of the social sciences with the philological understanding of sinological studies and consists of a monographic section, composed of articles and research notes dedicated to the critical study of a particularly salient issue, of a section of sociolinguistic analysis, of three features by the Editorial Team, and of a space reserved for public debate.

The Editorial Team of OrizzonteCina shares and complies with the spirit of the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) in order to ensure the constant and rigorous implementation of international best practices as regards the ethical correctness of the publication process of the journal.
