The latest issue of Asia in Focus, Issue 4, is now out and freely available at http://www.asiainfocus.dk/.
In this issue you can read about the influence of Adat culture on the peace process in North Maluku, Indonesia, and the development of Tourism in Southeast Asia as well as two book reviews.
In the opening article the Editorial Committee reflect on the experiences of working with Asia in Focus and the challenges and inspiration they find with the papers that are submitted. Here is a little taster:
We, the Editorial Committee, have been giving some thought as to the meaning of Asia in Focus. From the side of our contributors, we have considered: What are the opportunities presented for early-career researchers? How can publishing with us benefit them? From the editorial side, we have pondered: Why are we editors here? What are our concerns about the submissions we receive? What are the highlights during the review process? What further advice can we give to our contributors and readers? Instead of keeping the answers to these questions to ourselves, we would like to share, as we view the responses as useful knowledge that may further assist early-career researchers in their academic careers as well as inform a wider public of the situation scholars are in.
Enjoy the read!
