Dear colleagues,

Happy New Year!

It has been 8 years since Chinese Semiotic Studies (CSS) started the publication of its first issue in 2009. And it is now published by De Gruyter Mouton with 4 issues per year.

CSS seeks to promote semiotic studies not only in China but also in the world at large in order to further mutual understanding and communication among semiotic scholars of varying cultural backgrounds. To this end, the journal publishes high quality articles from all branches of semiotics including general, existential, cognitive, cultural, dynamic, social semiotics, and biosemiotics. Also welcome are studies in the sign theories of classic foundational scholars such as Ferdinand de Saussure and Charles Sanders Peirce. The content of articles may range from theory building to the application of semiotic theories, from microanalysis to macro studies, and may draw on such fields as linguistics, literary theory, philosophy, aesthetics, communication, media, cognitive sciences and biology. To guarantee the quality of articles, all contributions will undergo a very strict procedure of anonymous peer-review.

Besides the regular sections for general semiotics, each issue of CSS contains three special thematic sections devoted to: (i) Chinese Cultural Signs and Sign Theories, (ii) Western Cultural Signs and Sign Theories, and (iii) Interactions between Chinese and Western semioticians. Contributions to these specific sections are especially welcome.

Best wishes,

Yongxiang Wang (Editor-in-chief of Chinese Semiotic Studies)
