Journal of Pacific Rim Psychology
The Journal of Pacific Rim Psychology (JPRP) stems from the South Pacific Journal of Psychology published between 1984 and 2005 and reflects the substantial growth in interest in the topics covered under the old journal.
JPRP fills a void in contemporary psychology, with a focus on a region of the world that is extraordinarily vast, easily recognisable, and rich in cultural diversity. From the Hawaiian Islands at the ‘hub’ of the region, through the many Pacific Island nations, Eastern Asia and the Western seaboards of North and South America, the region we call the Pacific Rim has an incredible potential to inform and contribute to our understanding of human behaviour and the issues our species and its many families now face. From climate change to disaster management and poverty reduction, the Pacific Rim region has its share of issues and potential solutions.
JPRP is a broad house both theoretically and methodologically. We encourage contributions that are both scholarly and applied, with an interdisciplinary awareness that matches the complexity of real-world questions and dilemmas. Especially welcome are contributions from Indigenous and minority perspectives. The journal will actively seek to foster mutual capacity building in the research domain, and on questions of human development generally.
