The Asia Pacific Reader (APR) is an interactive online platform for the research, discussion and publication of academic material concerning East Asia.
Built and independently edited by students from different disciplinary backgrounds, the project at its core serves as a resource for the entire Asian studies community. It is at once a news source, a handy reference for community and scholarship information, a platform for sharing readings and discussion, and an opportunity to publish work in various formats.
With an average of more than 10,000 hits per month in its first 2 years, and readers on every continent, the Asia Pacific Reader offers writers and photographers a uniquely effective way to communicate with others who share their interests. Top submissions are published in the annual East Asia Forum, a peer-reviewed journal held in libraries and universities around the world, and represented by EBSCO Publishing. The Dr. David Chu Prize is awarded annually for the top article published in the East Asia Forum.
An outgrowth of the learning environments at the Asian Institute and the MAPS (Master of Arts in Asia-Pacific Studies) programme, the APR is branching out to other universities to share resources and help build a larger online Asian studies community. The site’s development is guided by an open-source ethos of sharing and dialogue.
Research, understand, produce and share.
