Asia & the Pacific Policy Studies

Asia & the Pacific Policy Studies is the flagship journal of the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University. It is a peer-reviewed journal that targets research in policy studies in Australia, Asia and the Pacific, across a discipline focus that includes economics, political science, governance, development and the environment. Specific themes of recent interest include health and education, aid, migration, inequality, poverty reduction, energy, climate and the environment, food policy, public administration, the role of the private sector in public policy, trade, foreign policy, natural resource management and development policy.

Professor Stephen Howes, Director of the Development Policy Centre, is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. See information on the editorial board, submission guidelines, and submit your paper (you will need to log in to the submission site).

Papers on a range of topics that speak to various disciplines, the region and policymakers are encouraged. The goal of the journal is to break down barriers across disciplines, and generate policy impact. Submissions will be reviewed on the basis of content, policy relevance and readability. Articles on the Pacific island region are especially encouraged.

The journal is supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) through the Pacific Research Program.

Access the journal through the Wiley Online Library.
