At Sustineo, we take great pride in the work of individual team members in contributing towards our organisational mission and purpose. While leading a broad range of Sustineo’s research work in the Pacific, Sustineo’s Dr Matt Allen is also one of the Editors for the journal Asia & the Pacific Policy Studies. It’s a perfect fit, with his 20+ year career as an academic and development practitioner specialising in the western Pacific ensuring he brings valuable insight and critique to the peer review process.
Asia & the Pacific Policy Studies is the flagship journal of the Crawford School of Public Policy at The Australian National University. It is an open access peer-reviewed journal that publishes policy-oriented research with a geographical focus on Asia and the Pacific, and a disciplinary focus spanning economics, political science, governance, development, and the environment.
“I am honoured to be serving as the sole private sector member on the journal’s Editorial Board and to be contributing to the publication of high-quality policy-relevant research, especially on the Pacific, in a format that is openly and freely available to all,” said Matt. “It is particularly satisfying to be able to support the publication of articles by emerging researchers and on countries or regions that tend to be under-represented in the world of scholarly publishing”.
We hope that Matt’s growing experience working on Sustineo’s Pacific projects will facilitate the publication of more articles on important development issues in the Pacific, and by Pacific researchers, both of which are important priorities for the journal.
Gud wan, Matt!
