The Journal of Pacific Studies (JPacS) is hosted by The University of the South Pacific (USP) and is ranked by the ABDC (Australian Business Deans Council). It is a multi-disciplinary journal that focuses on development issues relevant to the Pacific Islands region. JPacS welcomes scholarly articles arising from a wide range of study relevant to the Pacific region including, but not limited to, Accounting and Financial Management, Business, Development Studies, Economics, Geography, History, Labour and Industrial Relations, Land Management and Development, Management, Marine Affairs, Political Studies, Population Studies, Public Administration, Social Policy, Sociology and Tourism Studies.
As development issues in the Pacific region are often complex and dynamic, JPacS tends to focus on contemporary issues.
The recently appointed team at USP that manages JPacS includes editors with a wide range of expertise. The review of articles submitted to JPacS usually takes between 1 to 2 months, with each article going through a rigorous process of review, revision, proof-reading and editing before the final version of the article is published. The review process includes many reviewers who are external to USP.
