The Journal of Asia-Pacific Pop Culture (JAPPC) is a peer-reviewed journal with an international focus and is devoted to the study of popular culture and the context of the everyday in the Asia-Pacific and Oceania regions. It offers a broad range of scholarly material about many popular culture areas including visual arts, fashion, film, cartoons, fandom, biography, entertainment, gender and media. It is the official journal of the Popular Culture Association of Australia, Asia, and New Zealand (PopCAANZ).

The association is devoted to the scholarly understanding of everyday cultures and aims to promote this understanding, broadly conceived, in the Asia-Pacific and Oceania regions and beyond by bringing together academics, students and practitioners from the field of popular culture through the establishment and promotion of conferences, exhibitions, publications, public forums and discussions.
