Guide for Authors

The Journal of Pacific Studies (JPacS) welcomes the submission of high-quality original articles that are relevant to the Pacific region. The Editor-in-Chief will make the first assessment of all articles according to quality and relevance. Articles will either be sent for independent peer review or returned to the primary author.

If articles are subsequently accepted for publication by JPacS, the publication will occur as soon as the copy editing process has been completed and approved. JPacS is a fully online journal with all articles freely available via Open Access (subscription free).

Please submit your article by emailing us on

Occasionally JPacS will nominate a theme for a Special Edition, which will be announced on the website.
