It is a peer-reviewed journal that targets policy-relevant research in Australia, Asia and the Pacific. Its disciplinary focus includes economics, political science, governance and development studies, and environmental management. The goal of the journal is to break down barriers across disciplines, and generate policy impact. Articles on the Pacific Island region are especially encouraged.

APPS is published online three times a year by Wiley. All APPS articles are open access and freely available to read and download from Wiley Online Library.
