Aims and scope
Asian Journal of Public Relations (AJPR) is an international, peer-reviewed journal for academics and practitioners of public relations, published by the Korean Academic Society for Public Relations (KASPR). AJPR publishes once a year in November and runs as an open-access journal; however, it does not charge submission or publication fees.
Aims : AJPR aims primarily to publish scholarship that addresses and fosters the interconnections between theory and practice in public relations across multiple contexts. All theoretical and methodological approaches, including quantitative, qualitative, critical, historical, legal, or philosophical are welcome, as are all contextual areas.
Scope : AJPR covers a variety of research subjects related to the field of public relations. Topics include but are not limited to public relations theories or practices, such as media relations, government relations, community relations, employee relations (internal communications), investor relations (financial communications), corporate social responsibility, PR ethics, organizational communication, issues and crisis management, public campaigns (e.g., political, health, risk, science), and any other areas contributing to the advancement of public relations.
Types of Articles: :
1. Full Research Paper
Authors are encouraged to submit original reports of studies on any topic related to public relations. Research articles may be conceptual, theory-building, or empirical. They may also discuss methodological or pedagogical aspects of public relations.
2. Research in Brief
For submissions that do not meet the criteria of a full paper, authors may be invited to reformat their paper as a “Research in Brief,” which should provide a short summary (no more than 1500 words) of the author’s original paper. If an author’s full paper is not accepted after peer review but deemed worthy of a brief summary, the author will receive a reply detailing the format to be used for the “Research in Brief.”
3. Research in Practice or Case Study
Research focused on industry practices or case studies that analyze any disciplines of public relations, including but not limited to issues and crisis management, communications campaigns, corporate social responsibility, reputation management, special event planning, fundraising, employee communications, investor relations, community relations, media relations, global public relations, public diplomacy, health communication, and government relations.
