Asia Pacific Viewpoint call for papers

Aiming to continue the high standards of scholarship set by Pacific Viewpoint since 1960, Asia Pacific Viewpoint continues to address the economic, social and political geography of change in the Asia Pacific region. Maps and photographs are encouraged.

The editors would like to encourage papers on:

• economic and social development of countries in the region, including international investment and migration
• economic relationships between those countries, including the consequences of industry, service and resource developments
• the relationship between the environment and development
• the interaction of countries in the region
• the concept of the Asia Pacific region as an economic and socio-political entity
• the environmental preconditions and consequences of development initiatives in the region
• the impacts of globalisation on the social, economic, cultural and environmental systems of the Asia Pacific region and the implications of this for geographical theory and practice.

All papers will be subject to double-blind refereeing. Detailed instructions on how to submit your manuscript are available online.
