Latest issue of policy journal a chart-topper

From foreign aid to the Pacific to a case study of a North Korean pop band, the new issue of the Asia & the Pacific Policy Studies journal has something for everyone.

The latest issue – the third this year – features articles from ANU staff including Matthew Dornan, Miranda Stewart and David Ingles. They are joined by authors including John Gibson, Hunter Marston and Nicholas Borroz, Tai Wei Lim, Qihui Chen, Ryan Hartley, and many more.

This issue covers a wide range of policy issues including Thailand-Japan economic relations, how Trump can avoid a war with China, the role of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, and even state-endorsed popular culture with a piece on the North Korean band Morangbong.

All articles in Asia & the Pacific Policy Studies are free to read and download. The journal is published three times a year by Wiley. The journal is based at Crawford School of Public Policy in the College of Asia and the Pacific.

Since launching in 2014, the journal has gone from strength to strength, publishing more than 160 articles that have been downloaded more than 180,000 times.

Asia & the Pacific Policy Studies has become the leading journal looking at public policy in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Editor Professor Tom Kompas.

“The numbers of downloads are staggering, and show the strength of the pieces and appetite for high-quality research on regional policy issues. It also highlights the importance of making sure that academic knowledge and expertise isn’t locked behind expensive journal pay walls.

“The journal has recently been evaluated, and accepted, for inclusion in Scopus by the Content Selection & Advisory Board. The review commented: ‘This is an excellent journal that occupies an important niche, so (it) thoroughly deserves listing in Scopus.’”
