The Journal of Chinese Overseas (JCO) is a biannually peer-reviewed academic journal published in English by the Chinese Heritage Centre​, Nanyang Technological University Singapore, and Brill under the auspices of the International Society for the Study of Chinese Overseas (ISSCO).* 

The JCO is an internationally cross-disciplinary journal dedicated to promote the study of Chinese overseas. It publishes research articles, empirical reports, theoretical essays, and book reviews on topics and issues relevant to the Chinese overseas and their communities throughout the world.
