Publication Ethics

Jurnal Asia Pacific Studies (JAPS) is committed against the practice of plagiarism. We use duplication-checking software to detect incoming articles for potential plagiarised academic work. If there is any indication of plagiarised work published in the journal, the editors deserved the rights to retract the article and take punitive measures accordingly. Any complaints and appeal should be sent to JAPS email (

Articles will be accepted on the basis of originality, novelty and relevance of findings to JAPS' mission. Decisions regarding the article acceptance will be taken without discrimination on the basis of gender, religion, ethnicity and sexual orientation. JAPS will maintain the highest quality of transparency and impartial decision-making process.
