About Harvard Asia Pacific Review






The Harvard Asia Pacific Review is Harvard's premier journal featuring the major issues of the Asia-Pacific region. It has featured content by leaders and scholars such as former PRC President Jiang Zemin, architect I.M. Pei, Goldman Sachs Asia chief economist Kenneth S. Courtis, and Burmese freedom fighter and Nobel Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi. The Review combines this content with visual appeal -- a sleek glossy layout and fresh up-to-date look.

The Review prides itself on bringing together a multitude of perspectives on recent events and trends, attracting world leaders, renowned scholars, and leading professionals worldwide as contributors. Each issue has a large feature section with articles centered on a contemporary theme. Issues also carry a secondary theme, an In Focus section of analysis of a variety of current issues, an opinion section, and book reviews. It is a semi-annual academic journal, primarily in print, and completely undergraduate-produced. The first issue was produced in 1997.

Geographic coverage is Asia and Oceana. Subject coverage is broad covering government, economics, social studies, history, East Asian studies, and the natural and applied sciences. The glossy layout particularly lends itself to coverage of arts and culture. It is where political forecasters and cultural anthropologists exchange ideas across the Mekong, the Yangtze, and the Ganges; and where both freshmen and seniors come face-to-face with heads of state, leading theorists, and controversial figures.
