Who We Are

The Journal of Futures Studies is a publication of Tamkang University, Taiwan, supported by the Graduate Institute of Futures Studies.

The Journal of Futures Studies is a globally-oriented, trans-disciplinary refereed journal. Its mission is to develop high-quality, futures-oriented research and thinking based on the evolving knowledge base of Futures Studies.

JFS will highlight recent and upcoming editions and news from the journal, with a view toward making it easy for you to both access articles and essays as well as share them with your colleagues and networks. JFS aims to bring you:

    Epistemologically focused studies on the construction of possible, probable and preferable futures,
    Emerging methodologies in futures studies, including integrated, layered, and critical approaches, as well as empirical, interpretive or action-learning based approaches,
    Applied Futures (for example, case studies in the use of futures thinking for organizational transformation),
    Alternative futures of particular subjects (for example, genetics, nano-technology, utopianism, social movements, or particular areas, such as East Asia).

The editors invite contributors in the areas of foresight, forecasting, long-range planning, visioning and other related areas. Find out about submitting an article.
