Wang, Bingyu, and Francis Collins. 2016. “Emotions and cosmopolitan sociability: Barriers and opportunities for intercultural encounters amongst new Chinese migrants in New Zealand.” Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies 42 (1): 88-102. (SSCI)
-- Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies (JEMS) is widely regarded as one of the top three journals within the field of ‘human migration’ and ‘ethnic and cultural studies’ (currently ranked the second according to Google Scholar). Its current 5-year Impact Factor is 1.912 and 2015 Impact Factor was 1.536 (2016 Journal of Citation Reports), which is very high for the field. Its editing team includes world-leading migration scholars such as Magdalena Nowicka (Humboldt University of Berlin) and Brenda Yeoh (National University of Singapore-NUS). It is published by Routledge, a leading academic publisher in the humanities and social sciences.
-- Many outstanding scholars in the field, including Prof. Greg Noble (University of Western Sydney), A/Prof. Elaine Ho (NUS), Prof. Brenda Yeoh (NUS), and Dr. David Bissell (Australian National University), all think very highly of this article in terms of its significant and original contribution to scholarships on migration, emotion and diversity encounters. The article also has very high on-line views.
Wang, Bingyu, and Francis Collins. 2016. “Becoming Cosmopolitan? Hybridity and Intercultural Encounters amongst 1.5 Generation Chinese Migrants in New Zealand.” Ethnic and Racial Studies. 39 (15): 2777-2795. (SSCI)
-- Ethnic and Racial Studies (ERS) is the top journal internationally in the filed of 'Human migration' and 'Ethnic and cultural studies'. Its 5-year Impact Factor is 1.425 and 2015 Impact Factor was 1.07 (2016 Journal of Citation Reports). Its editing team includes Stephen Castles, one of the most influential migration scholars in the world and who is currently based at the University of Sydney. It is published by Routledge.
-- This article has made important contribution to the literature on '1.5 generation migrants' and 'everyday cosmopolitanism', presenting a nuanced argument that the process of becoming cosmopolitan is socially situated, subject to multiple pressures, and enacted within the uneven power relations of society. It has been praised by reviewers as a research article that merits international scholarly attention. It has already been cited by A/Prof. Amanda Wise (Macquarie University) in her most recent article 'Becoming Cosmopolitan: Encountering difference in a city of mobile labour' published in Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies (JEMS).
Wang Bingyu. 2016. “Performing Everyday Cosmopolitanism? Uneven Encounters with Diversity amongst First Generation New Chinese Migrants in New Zealand.” Ethnicities. Advance online publication. DOI: 10.1177/1468796816671977. (SSCI)
-- Ethnicities (ETN) is a world leading peer reviewed journal centred on sociology and politics. It has impressive international reputation and provides the very best critical, interdisciplinary dialogue on questions regarding ethnicity, nationalism and related issues such as identity politics and minority rights. Its 2015 impact factor was 0.770 (2016 Journal of Citation Reports). Its editing team includes world famous scholars, such as Ien Ang (Australia), Stephen Castles (Australia), and Paul Spoonley (New Zealand). It is published by Sage.
-- This article received excellent reviews. It was praised as 'a valuable research that successfully addressed an important theoretical area in migration studies' that needs more empirical backup – that is the 'everyday performance of cosmopolitanism by migrants'.
Wang, Bingyu. 2016. “Emotions and home-making: Performing Cosmopolitan Sociability amongst First Generation New Chinese Migrants in New Zealand.” Asian and Pacific Migration Journal 25(2): 130–147.（SSCI)
-- Asian and Pacific Migration Journal (APMJ) is the first peer reviewed journal devoted to migration issues in the Asia Pacific. It is a highly-respected journal in the research field of migration studies, and a leading forum for research on the Asia Pacific. Its editorial board includes world renowned scholars Brenda Yeoh (NUS) and Nana Oishi (University of Melbourne). It is published by Sage, a major academic publisher.
-- This article has contributed to the scholarship on 'cosmopolitan sociability' and 'home-making'. As with the JEMS article, this publication applied 'cosmopolitan sociability' to the study of migration and diversity encounters. The article has generated great scholarly attention to the topic of emotions within migration and mobility studies. It has been recently utilised as the reading material for several seminars and workshops organised by New Zealand Geography Society.
Wang, Bingyu. 2015. “Simultaneous Rootedness and Openness? Researching Rooted Cosmopolitanism Among New Chinese Migrants in New Zealand.” The Princeton Journal of East Asian Studies 8, 100-116.
-- The Princeton Journal of East Asian Studies (PJEAS) is an academic journal supported by the East Asian Studies Program at Princeton University. Reviewing is done in house. The journal does not advertise its Impact Factor. The journal is a well-respected and highly influential platform for early career researchers in the field of Asian studies, ethnic and migration studies, especially within the U.S.
-- Taking new Chinese migrants to New Zealand as an example, this article has extended the literature on cosmopolitanism beyond a Eurocentric framework, and has identified the emergence of cosmopolitanism outside the domain of Western middle-class groups.
