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.
