Editorial policy

The Asia Pacific Studies Center reserves the right to select articles for publication. Articles published in this journal are approved by the full editorial committee, after being reviewed by at least two academic peers (double-blind review) in order to maintain high levels of transparency and academic rigor.
All submitted articles must be recent. This journal will not consider for publication articles that have been published in other journals with the aim of guaranteeing copyright rules.
Having submitted the article does not guarantee its publication and does not necessarily lead to a specific publication deadline for publication. Authors are advised not to submit their articles in parallel to other journals. 


Peer Review Process

Each one of the articles received is subjected to a two-step revision (double blind peer review) and selection process: internal by one of the mem­bers of the Editorial Board who will evaluate the originality and pertinence of the article. Subsequently an anonymous referee will con­sider the scientific worth, structure, basis, use of sources, and conceptual rigor of the poten­tial article. Within the four months following the submittal of the text, the author will be no­tified of the evaluation process results.

Papers must be prepared for anonymous review, with revealing acknowledgements and self-identifying references removed. Papers not prepared for anonymous refereeing will not be read. Submissions must not have been published in part or whole, or be under consideration elsewhere.
