It is a great pleasure for us to share the news with you all that APIAR is collaborating with webQDA (qualitative data-analysis software) to assist researchers with their data analysis. Every best paper winner at APIAR conferences will be awarded with a free 90-day license to explore this software.
webQDA is a software to support the analysis of qualitative data in a collaborative and distributed environment. Although there are some software packages that address non-numeric and unstructured data(text, image, video, audio) in qualitative analysis, there are few that can be used by several researchers in a collaborative work environment and distributed as the Internet can offer. webQDA is a software directed to researchers in different contexts, that need to analyze qualitative data, individually or collaboratively, synchronously or asynchronously.
webQDA follows the structural and theoretical design of other programs available in the market, differentiating itself by providing online, real-time collaborative work and a service that supports the research process.
With webQDA the researcher can edit, view, link and organize documents. At the same time they can create categories, code, manage, filter, search and question the data in order to answer the questions that emerge in their research.
The ‘First International Conference on Advanced Research (ICAR)’ in Bahrain, which was jointly organised by Asia Pacific Institute of Advanced Research (APIAR) and Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University (PMU), Saudi Arabia, was a great success. Held in January of this year, the conference attracted around seventy participants from all over the world. During the two days of the presentations, participants shared their knowledge and experience, and APIAR and PMU officials discussed future collaborative activities. The management team of APIAR thanks every individual who contributed at the conference and helped to make it such a success.
We would like to thank all of the authors who submitted their book chapters for publication with us in our various handbooks. We were overwhelmed by the number of submissions, receiving 67 chapters altogether. Our expert reviewing team have read gone through each one, and finally accepted around a sixth of the submissions. At the same time, our publishing team are preparing the upcoming publication of the ‘Asia Pacific Handbook of Contemporary Research – Volume 1’. We expect to complete the process by the end of October, 2017. Please contact us to obtain your copy.
It is our great pleasure to share the news that our journal articles will now have DOI by Crossref. Using the DOI of an article allows users to source it directly, with no other keywords or additional information needed. In addition, when citing published works digitally, providing the DOI will lead to the full reference details being automatically inserted. Using DOIs allows your online content to be tracked on a digital map for life, regardless of where on the map it may move. Publish with us and be recognized by all.
It has come to our attention that David Publishing Company is approaching our conference participants to publish with them. Please be aware that APIAR has no connection or collaboration with this company. APIAR will publish your full-paper without any extra cost if you have participated in one of our conferences.

For the benefit of academics and practitioners Asia Pacific Institute of Advanced Research will now be publishing handbooks on the topics of business, social sciences, education and ICT. The handbooks will become regarded as teaching tools for academics, setting the standards for academic situations, empowering the research sector. The handbooks will allow for a deeper understanding by all members of a team for greater success in the business world. Contributors must submit by the 28th of April, with publication to be on the 3rd of July 2017 and can expect the publication of the highest standards in a limited time frame.
The Asia Pacific Journal of Contemporary Education and Communication Technology stands as the world’s leading publication regarding the ever-broadening divisions in these two fields. The Journal serves as a platform for exploring emerging trends of technological potential as well as being the leading publication on the most recent educational techniques, discovery and growth.
The Asia Pacific Journal of Advanced Business and Social Studies strives to become the leading publication in projecting the advances in these two rapidly-expanding disciplines that have been closely associated for some time. By presenting articles from these two areas in a single publication, researchers and management executives from both disciplines will have the opportunity to benefit from an even closer interaction between the two fields.
It gives us immense pleasure to announce that from now on APIAR will work with Prof. Piet Kommers with his ICT for Education project.
UNESCO awarded his work in ICT for Education in Eastern Europe with the title of Honorary Professor. The Capital Normal University in Beijing awarded his work with the title of Honorary Doctor. He is member of advisory boards in ministries of education and academia of sciences in Singapore, Finland and Russia.
APIAR is hopeful to contribute into this area with the leadership of Prof. Piet Kommers. For more information please get in touch [email protected]
