I’ve been a bit busy in recent weeks with preparing for and then attending the ICBM Conference and also with my own birthday. The conference went OK from my point of view: I have already posted the titles and abstracts of the papers presented. I will be working over the next few weeks to convert those papers into submissions to academic journals. There are a few more outstanding from the end of last year as well, to make sure I am not able to get into trouble by having too little to do.
In the meantime, I have had several more acceptances, which is good news as ever. The paper on Cambodian labour migrants in Thailand has been accepted for Asian Social Science, the paper on the Thai Khem Kaeng stimulus package has been accepted by the Journal of Economics and Business Studies, the paper on corruption and labour markets has been accepted by Review of Economics and Business Studies, the paper on Vietnamese migrants in Thailand has been accepted by Acta Universitatis Danubius Oeconomicus and, last night, the paper on Suriya Coffins was accepted by Society and Business Review. So that’s good then. When the published versions arrive, I will post announcements here.
