    H-Japan is an international, nonpartisan electronic
discussion group sponsored by H-Net, Humanities-On-Line and the Kansai Institute of
Asia-Pacific Studies (KIAPS) of Osaka University  of Foreign Studies. It provides scholars, graduate
students and professionals a free daily forum to  discuss Japanese
history, culture, religion, and society, including contemporary political, diplomatic, security, and economic issues. 

 This list has been established in part with funding from the the National
Endowment for the  Humanities and the Center for a Global Partnership
of the Japan Foundation (Kokusai Koryu  Kikin Nichibei Center, who have also given support
to H-Asia and H-USA). Among our other  activities, we also support the Japan-America
Student Conference (JASC: Nichibei Gakusei  Kaigi). H-Japan complements
the H-Net list H-ASIA which handles broader regional issues and to which you may wish to subscribe (send subscription
requests for H-ASIA to   listserv at h-net.msu.edu). 

  H-Japan is an EDITED list. This means that list editors will screen all
incoming messages to  eliminate "flames," ad hominem arguments, "spams,"
private email, or non-scholarly messages. We will not censor ideas that can be presented, but
we will do our utmost to assure that clearly irrelevant or unprofessional materials do not
appear on the list. We may make minor editorial changes (spelling corrections, for example, or
complete signatures) as needed. 

  Subscribers submit questions, comments, reports and replies to H-Japan.
H-Japan publishes  syllabi, outlines, handouts, bibliographies,
listings of new sources, library catalogs and archives,  and reports on
new software, datasets and cd-roms, and posts announcements of
conferences, fellowships, new publications in Japanese studies,
and jobs. H-Japan also commissions serious  book reviews and responses from authors and
audience alike. 

 H-Japan is an electronic publication. All postings will be permanently
stored on-line, and may be quoted and cited. We encourage the republication of
H-JAPAN postings for non-profit educational use, and ask that proper credit be given to the
author and to H-JAPAN, and that the date of posting  be given. 
 It is our intent to encourage international participation and in
particular to encourage interaction between specialists in Japan and others located
throughout the world. We strongly encourage communications in either English or Japanese. We
will encourage people to write in the language with which they are most comfortable. To create an
atmosphere in which people will feel comfortable in exchanging ideas in a
"foreign" language, we encourage readers to ask for  clarifications of possible misunderstandings or to
offer comments in a professional manner so that substantive issues remain our focus.
