Aims and scope

The growth of the Asia Pacific region and the rising presence of its multinationals in world markets has raised a number of questions about the origins of national economic success.

Asia Pacific Business Review addresses these key issues and draws together the lessons of the analysis of culture, economies, history, politics and societies in the area, in order to explore business-related phenomena in the Asia Pacific countries, both in their general and specific contexts.

The Review is intended for both academics and interested observers, contains the contributions of recognized experts, and is essential to anyone seeking the latest research on Asia Pacific business in a readily available, approachable form. We welcome articles which deal with nations and societies in the Asia Pacific region, namely those in East Asia and South-East Asia (but not South Asia), including those in APEC and ASEAN, individually or comparatively*. Of interest also are contributions on the Asia Pacific economies, comparing those inside with those outside, or those investing in it. We do not, however, publish papers based solely on countries from outside the region.

*Brunei, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam. Authors can do a comparative study with one or more of the countries in the above list and one that is not listed.
