Selected journals that have published papers on anime, manga and fandom
As of 2017, there are no English-language academic journals dedicated to specifically to anime/manga. One such publication, Mechademia: An Annual Forum for Anime, Manga and the Fan Arts, did exist for a number of years, but ceased publication in 2015.
However, a paper dealing with anime, manga, the Japanese popular culture industry, or anime/manga fandom can appear in almost any journal that covers some aspect of the humanities and the social sciences. In fact, relevant articles have been also been published in law reviews, medical journals and business-oriented magazines, among others.
At the same time, several journals have specifically welcomed discussions of Japanese visual culture by consistently featuring single articles on anime and manga, organizing theme issues, or issuing calls for papers discussing aspects of Japanese comics and animation, the worldwide anime/manga industry, and the global anime and manga fandom.
These journals include:
+ The Comics Grid: Journal of Comics Scholarship
+ Cinephile: The University of British Columbia's Film Journal
/Japanese, East Asian, Asian Studies
+ Asian Studies Review
/Media and Popular Culture
