Your support has allowed us to surpass $13,000 and we thank you for allowing us to continue to make the Journal freely available to all. The Asia-Pacific Journal is a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. US Contributions are tax deductible. We are grateful to our supporters at all levels.
