The Journal has its objective set on fostering the originality, multiplicity, and novelty in the studies of Chinese diaspora. It welcomes scholars from all disciplines across the world to submit and publish academic articles and research discussions, with Chinese diaspora as the subject of study. The topics include the phenomena of diasporic Chinese as an individual and a collective, their experiences and situations in the places of residence, their activities transcending regional and international boundaries, as well as their relations and connections with China. The contributing authors can adopt methodology respectively from humanities, social sciences, and even science and technology, or employ multidisciplinary approach to address the topics pertaining to Chinese diaspora. The journal will engage scholars to review the manuscripts submitted for publication. In addition, the journal also introduces to the Chinese readers the important publications and major academic activities from various languages in order to enhance scholarly exchange and investigation in the diasporic Chinese studies.​
