Call for Electronic Media Reviews
The Internet has become a major source of information alongside the print media for many social scientists. Asian Politics & Policy, a peer-reviewed online journal published by Wiley-Blackwell, is looking for people to submit reviews of websites or blogsites relating to political and policy affairs in Asia.
We are especially interested in contributions exploring the dynamic relations between electronic media and politics in Asia. If you are interested in doing such a review, please let us know.
- Word length: 800-1,200 words per site. More in-depth or multiple-title review essays, on the other hand, may run up to 2,000 words.
- The purpose of the APP e-media reviews is to advise its readers of new research developments, incisive commentary and data sources on politics and policy in Asia available on websites and blogs.
- Reviews should be submitted by the agreed deadline. They must be formatted in a 12-point font, double-spaced with 1" margins, and page numbers.
- The associate editor in charge will evaluate the review and suggest changes as necessary. The edited review will then be submitted to the editorial board for final approval. After approval, the publisher (Wiley-Blackwell) will be in charge of the proofreading process.
Guidelines for the use of hyperlinks
As an online-published journal, we encourage the use of hyperlinks to enable readers to easily locate relevant sources and additional information.
(1) For the titles of websites under review, the URLs must be indicated beside the title at first mention, in parentheses.
Example: Foreign Policy in Focus (FPIF) (http://fpif.org/)
(2) The hyperlinks for pages, articles, and features that are integral to the review may be followed by "(author, date)" or appropriate information, and then included in a "References" section.
Example: "In particular, the discussion of the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic
Partnership Agreement (TPSEPA, 2005) has generated much
controversy in Japan..."
Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreemen. (2005). Retrieved from http://www.mfat.govt.nz/downloads/trade-agreement/transpacific/main-agreement.pdf.
(3) For additional links that are not integral to the review but which may lead to additional research resources, aside from the in-text hyperlink, please place them in a section titled "Web Resources" (after the "References" section) with the hyperlinked text followed by the URL and access date. The URLs of all the hyperlinked text are to be spelled out so that even non-online users will know where to look.
Example: "Despite the slow speed of this particular form of diplomacy, JIIA manages
Japan's activities in the Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia-Pacific
(CSCAP) launched as a private-sector initiative vis-a-vis the ASEAN
Regional Forum (ARF) in 1993."
