RCAPS publishes two journals: the Ritsumeikan
Journal of Asia Pacific Studies (known as "the RCAPS Journal") and APU Journal of Language
Research(APLJ). The two journals have independent editorial policies and teams but the
submissions are commonly assessed by the general “Editors” of each journal, and they are not
formally peer reviewed. Since 2012, the RCAPS Journal has started an “in-house” peer review
with the help of APU faculty members as well as a few other affiliated researchers and reviewers.
