AJPOR Call for Translated Papers

One of the goals of ANPOR in increasing awareness of the work we are all doing in our respective countries and making our research more accessible internationally. To help support this goal, the Asian Journal for Public Opinion Research (AJPOR) has decided that, as a service to members, we will publish translations of the best new public opinion research published in Asian languages. We are currently accepting suggestions for papers to publish.

The editorial board will decide which previously published papers to translate and include in AJPOR. We will always approach the author(s) of the paper to get his permission prior to translating and publishing it. English versions of the paper should be shorter than 2,000 words. If the author feels comfortable translating his paper or writing a shorter version in English, we will encourage him to do so. If he does not feel comfortable translating his own paper, we can ask an ANPOR member to translate it for him.

Suggestions for the best (non-English) papers related to public opinion research from your country's journals may be sent to Suggestions may be made by anyone, including the paper's authors, and should include titles/author/previous publication information. If possible, an English abstract or a brief statement about the topic of the paper should be included. You may also tell us why you think this paper is important.
