Rationale for AEPR
|In Japan and Asia today, there are few English-language journals that provide a bridge between Japan and Asia, between academia and policy circles, and between economics and the politics of economic policy making. There is a vacuum for a high-quality, but readable journal in Asia. The mission of our new journal is to fill this gap. We envision that our new journal will grow to have a status in Asia similar to that enjoyed by Foreign Affairs or the Brookings Papers on Economic Activities.|
Aims and Scope
|The goal of this journal is to become an intellectual voice on the current issues of international economics and economic policy based on comprehensive and in-depth analyses, with a primary focus on Asia. As such, articles in the journal will not be purely academic research or political commentaries. Instead, stress will be placed on identifying key issues at the time - spanning international trade, international finance, the environment, energy, the integration of regional economies and other issues - in order to furnish ideas and proposals to contribute positively to the policy debate in the region. Although the principal focus is economic policy issues, when necessary and relevant, international relations papers will also be included.|
|Each issue of the journal features a common theme approved at Editorial Meetings. Followed by the meetings, two workshops will be organized every year (one conference for each journal issue) where authors will present their papers, and then receive comments from designated discussants and from conference participants. This process will guarantee a very high standard of papers appropriate for a first-class journal. The revised papers will be published in the journal, together with a summary of the discussions at the workshop.|
Editors / Editorial Board
|The editorial team for the journal consists of three Editors, a Managing Editor, a group of Associate Editors, and an Advisory Board. The three Editors will be responsible for content of all articles. The Managing Editor is responsible for ensuring the timely and efficient publication of the journal, and will handle all correspondence between the journal, authors and discussants. Associate Editors will provide advice regarding themes for specific issues of the journal, and make suggestions about possible article writers, participate actively in the workshops where papers will be presented and discussed. Members of the Advisory Board will provide advice on policy issues for the journal and aid in the selection process of the specific themes for particular issues of the journal.|
