Call for papers

What differing dynamics exist to the learning organization and organizational learning in the Asian Pacific context? What best practice and learning could be shared? 

This special issue intends to gather worldwide scholars’ perspectives to illuminate the different challenges, opportunities in the Asia Pacific region, as well as the current subject thought leadership about the Asia Pacific region. It seeks to extend existing knowledge while simultaneously bringing to the fore, key areas for development and enhancement as well as signpost analytical and critical thoughts on the learning organization/organizational learning. It invites theoretically and empirically positioned papers to delve deeper into the notion and relevance of the learning organization/organizational learning and welcomes these views from across a diverse context and geography. Cross-discipline and contemporary studies from different industry and sector perspectives would also have the potential to enrichen understanding in a highly diverse region. There is much opportunity for this special issue to create impact not only in the Asia Pacific region but the wider sharing of best practice internationally. We hereby invite scholarly papers in these areas to share their research and thoughts to benefit the academic and professional community.

  • Do unique theoretical perspectives and frameworks exist with considering a localized regional dynamic, agenda or culture? 
  • Does the Asia Pacific region provide opportunities for new tools, frameworks and knowledge to become professionalized or applied in real-world practice?
