The Pacific Geographies (PG), ISSN 2196-1468, is the peer-reviewed semi-annual publication of the Association for Pacific Studies (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Pazifische Studien e.V., APSA). From 1992-2012 it was labelled Pacific News (ISSN 1435-8360). It is published through the Department of Human Geography of Hamburg University, Germany. It is an open access journal, all articles can be downloaded for free. The PG provides an interdisciplinary academic platform to discuss social, cultural, environmental and economic issues and developments in the Asia-Pacific region.
It is the aim of the PG to also encourage emerging researchers such as postgraduate students as well as practitioners to report on their research-based work. The journal targets a wide audience of readers including academics and students, public and private sector representatives and the general public with an interest in research that is based in the Asia-Pacific region.
In order to uphold scientific standards, the PG is implementing a peer-review process. Articles marked as „scientific papers“ have been peer-reviewed by two external reviewers. Scientific papers report on and discuss original research; they are theory-driven and contribute to the knowledge in the respective field. Articles marked as „research notes“ have been peer-reviewed by one external reviewer and a member of the editorial board. “Research notes” can report on research in progress or be the result of non-original or applied research. All other contributions have been reviewed by the editorial board.
The use of full-coloured photos and high-quality maps provides authors with unique opportunities to illustrate their work and sets Pacific Geographies apart from other area studies journals.
