Cipango is currently the only scientific journal dedicated to Japan that is published in France, and it has become a reference in the field of Japanese studies. It welcomes articles from researchers affiliated with French institutions as well as regular contributions from foreign specialists, mainly from Japan, Europe, and the United States.

As a multidisciplinary journal in the field of humanities and social sciences (history, ethnology, geography, economics, linguistics, literature, arts, cinema, etc.), Cipango prioritizes in-depth studies that primarily use original Japanese-language sources. It also features translations (of scientific or literary texts, historical documents) and, to a lesser extent, essays and testimonies.

Cipango also places significant emphasis on research news, including reviews of scientific books as well as summaries of theses and dissertations written in French. It is, therefore, a valuable journal for young researchers.
