Departmental Journals and Occasional Publications
In the last two decades, there has been an unprecedented expansion of legalized gambling worldwide, especially within the Asia-Pacific region. Such explosive growth generates both benefits and significant social and economic costs. From a public health perspective, the development of responsible social policies is essential in addressing problems and preventing potential harms associated with gambling.
The APSS occasional publication series is a platform provided for internal and external staff, researchers and postgraduate students to offer their informed perspective on policy issues, new research methodologies, essays, conference presentations, or summary of work in progress. All occasional publications undergo peer reviews to help ensure they meet high standards for research quality and objectivity.
