The International Forum is an internationally double-blind peer-reviewed journal published electronically twice yearly by the Graduate School of the Adventist International Institute of Advanced Studies (AIIAS). Its first issue was published in October 1998. The Journal deals with academic themes of interest to an interdisciplinary audience, for both national and international readership. The purpose of International Forum is to provide scholars and interested professionals with a forum for disseminating original research and theoretical discussions focusing primarily, but not solely, on the needs of the Asia-Pacific region. It provides an opportunity for novice scholars (both graduate students and inexperienced faculty) to hone their research and writing skills. It focuses on current themes related to Business, Education, and Public Health. Views and opinions expressed in the International Forum represent those of the authors and not necessarily the views and opinions of the editors or the Graduate School.
