Asia Pacific Media Educator is an international refereed journal published twice a year by SAGE Publications (New Delhi) in collaboration with the School of the Arts, English and Media, Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts, University of Wollongong in Australia. The journal follows international norms and procedures of blind peer reviewing by scholars representing a wide range of multi-disciplinary areas. APME focuses on generating discussions and dialogues among media educators, researchers and journalists.

Content ranges from critical commentaries and essays to research reports and papers that contribute to journalism theory development and offer innovative ideas in improving the standard and currency of media reportage, teaching and training specific to the Asia Pacific region. Papers that integrate media theories with applications to professional practice, media training and journalism education are usually selected for peer review.

APME also carries a Q&A section with book authors. APME takes conventional book reviews to a more creative level where reviewers directly engage with authors to understand the process that authors take in researching and writing the book, clarify their assumptions and pose critical questions. Authors have generally found this approach to book reviews intellectually more engaging and meaningful.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

    Manuscripts: Manuscripts and all editorial correspondence should be addressed to: The Editor, Stephen Tanner. Asia Pacific Media Educator at stanner@uow.edu.au

    Guidelines specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition; 2009) should be followed, and submissions should be made electronically in Microsoft Word format. Each submission should consist of a title page and a main document file.

    • Contributors must provide their affiliation, complete postal and e-mail addresses and telephone numbers with their papers. If there are two or more authors, then the corresponding author’s name and address details must be specified clearly.

    • It is author’s responsibility to disclose any potential conflict of interest regarding the manuscript.

    • Authors will be provided with a copyright form once the contribution is accepted for publication. The submission will be considered as final only after the filled-in and signed copyright form is received.

    • Research papers should be no more than 6,000 words including references and endnotes. Shorter commentary articles of 3,000 to 3,500 words on any aspects of journalism trends and its impact on media education and training encouraged. The main document file should be about 8 to 15 double-spaced pages in length including tables, figures, notes and references.

    • Articles must have an abstract of 150–200 words and 4–6 keywords.

    • All figures, i.e., diagrams, images, photographs and tables should be placed at the end of the file and numbered in the order they appear in text. Tables and figures should be indicated by numbers separately in the text (see Table 1), and not by placement (see Table below). All Figures and Tables must be cited in the text, and provided in editable format. Present each table and figure in a separate file. Name the files by the number of the table or figure.

    Tables should be submitted in MS Excel or MS Word. Do not provide an excessive formatting for tables and figures. Each table or figure should have a heading, an explanatory caption if necessary and a source or reference in a separate Word file. Figures can be submitted as TIFF/JPEG files with minimum 300 dpi and 1500 pixels. Due permissions should be taken for copyright protected photographs/images. Even for photographs/images available in the public domain, it should be clearly ascertained whether or not their reproduction requires permission for purposes of publishing (which is a profit-making endeavor).

    • Notes should be numbered serially. They should be presented at the end of the article. Notes must contain more than a mere reference.

    • British spellings throughout (‘labour’ not ‘labor’, ‘centre’ not ‘center’); universal ‘z’ in ‘-ize’ and ‘-ization’ words.

    • Single quotes throughout; double quotes used within single quotes. Spellings of words in quotations should not be changed. Quotations of 45 words or more should be separated from the text and indented with one space with a line space above and below.

    • Use ‘nineteenth century’, ‘1980s’. Spell out numbers from one to nine, 10 and above to remain in figures. However, for exact measurements use only figures (3 km, 9 per cent not %).

    • Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimised, but used consistently. Avoid excessive use of italics for emphasis, but use it for book titles, journal names, as well as foreign words.

    • A consolidated listing of all books, articles, essays, theses and documents referred to (including any referred to in the tables, graphs and maps) should be provided at the end of the article.

    • Arrangement of references: Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work. In each reference, authors’ names are inverted (last name first) for all authors (first, second or subsequent ones); give the last name and initials for all authors of a particular work unless the work has more than six authors. If the work has more than six authors, list the first six authors and then use et al. after the sixth author’s name.
    • Chronological listing: If more than one work by the same author(s) is cited, they should be listed in order by the year of publication, starting with the earliest.
    • Sentence case: In references, sentence case (only the first word and any proper noun are capitalized – e.g., ‘The software industry in India’) is to be followed for the titles of papers, books, articles, etc.
    • Title case: In references, Journal titles are put in title case (first letter of all words except articles and conjunctions are capitalized – e.g., Journal of Business Ethics).
    • Italicize: Book and Journal titles are to be italicized.
    • Citations and References should adhere to the guidelines below (based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition). Some examples are given below:
