Warring States Papers is an annual repository for leading-edge research in the classical Chinese texts (those dating from the Spring and Autumn and Warring States periods), including related developments in the early Empire, and the historical development which the texts imply. It has a central focus on the methodology of text-based historical research, and includes examples of the application of basic historical and philological methods to texts in other traditions, including Homeric and Biblical Greek.

In the past, classical China has largely been viewed from the perspective of its own evolving tradition, and not on its own terms. The work of the Project, and thus the contents of the journal, seek to provide an alternative view, based on early rather than late evidence, and representing a more international perspective. The contents of WSP derive from the work of the Warring States Project at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and its colleagues at other institutions, from its foundation in 1993 to the present.

Volume 1 includes a set of papers from a panel at the 1995 New England regional meeting of the Association for Asian Studies, at which the work of the Project and its implications for Sinology were first formally introduced to the scholarly world. Highlights of Volume 1 include:

Word Studies in the Spring and Autumn and other texts
A Statistical Study of the Gwodyen text of the Dau/Dv Jing
The Shr or Chinese Classic of Poetry
The Mwodz
The Mencius
The Slanted Historiography of the Dzwo Jwan
A Comparison of Greek and Chinese Multi-State Systems
