The Journal welcomes all kinds of quality research articles pertaining to the field of Asian studies. It does not prefer or support any particular ism or ideology.

 The researchers are requested to submit the research articles prepared in adherence with the guidelines of the JASM. If any research article is found not to be adhering to the guidelines of the JASM, the author will be informed to revise and reformat the article strictly following the guidelines of the Journal. Only then the submission will be considered for publication in the Journal. All the submissions received for publication in the JASM are initially reviewed by the Journal Committee of the Society and the Editors of the Journal. Submissions found irrelevant to the Journal and / or of low priority, making pseudo-scientific claims or much ado about nothing, and lacking serious academics, will be rejected at this level without further review.
