On 26 November 2013, University Sains Malaysia Press (USM Press), the publisher of International Journal of Asia Pacific Studies (IJAPS) was delighted to welcome representatives from the Asia Pacific Management and Business Application (APMBA), University of Brawijaya, Indonesia.
Two officials from APMBA—Dr. Dodi Irawanto, the Editor-in-Chief and Prof. Moeljadi P.S., a member of the Editorial Board—came for this visit. The Director of USM Press, Akhiar Salleh, Editor-in-Chief of IJAPS, Prof. Ooi Keat Gin, Head of Journal Division, Fazlina Mohamed Rouse and the Journal Division team members represented USM Press.
In an enlightening half-day session, both sides had been able to share experience in key aspects of journal operations that include the management structure, milestones, challenges, as well as processes and workflows.
We thank both of our esteemed visitors from APMBA, and we look forward to forming a long-term relationship with the University of Brawijaya.
