Impact of Covid-19 on the review process

We are currently coping with a high volume of submissions and ask for your patience. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic too, our dedicated reviewers have experienced not only challenges under lockdown conditions, but also significant transitions in their professional lives. As a result, there may be delays in the review timeline and process, which can take up to six months. If you don’t hear from us after six months, please contact us for an update.

Guide for Authors

The following is a guide for authors who intend to submit their paper to the International Journal of Asia Pacific Studies, IJAPS. Submitting manuscripts in the correct format and in compliance to the requirements will expedite the review process and prevent undue delay in publication. The publisher reserves the right to reject or return manuscripts which are not prepared according to the stipulated guidelines.

The guide is available here.

Note: If you are having problem downloading either file, send an email to ijaps[at]usm.my and we shall send the guide to your email.
