The Journal of Southeast Asian Human Rights (JSEAHR) invites contributors who focus on human rights issues in Southeast Asia. It is suggested that submissions be between 8,000 and 12,000 words, saved Word files, and formatted in 12 pt. Times New Roman font. The author still may submit a manuscript that is shorter or longer than the word limit and the editor can still review the manuscript if she/he believes the manuscript meets the academic standard of the journal.

The journal does not publish book reviews in a short version, less than 3000 words in length, but authors more welcome to submit book reviews in a longer version.  The journal also welcomes commentary on human rights issues in Southeast Asia from all scholars from any discipline in a short version, approximately 2000 to 4000 words.

Submission of the manuscript to this journal should not have been published previously in academic publications such as books, book chapters, journals in the same language (English), or any other form of academic publications. However, authors are still allowed to submit their manuscript with a certain conditions (1), if less than 50 percent of the manuscript has been published at a conference, workshop, or as a seminar paper. This also implies that if the final version of the manuscript in this submission is the continuation of academic work, the author must state clearly in the manuscript about this work; (2) if the manuscript has been published in other languages rather than English; (3) if the manuscript has been published on an institutional website such as university, company organization website.

Contributors should remove their name from the manuscripts to ensure that the manuscript is anonymous and meets the double blind review process of this Journal. The editor of the Journal usually assigns two reviewers with anonymous identity in order to protect double blind review process and avoid conflict of interest between reviewer and author. It usually takes more than three months for the author to receive feedback from journal reviewers. If the author does not receive any feedback from the journal longer than the time allocated, please kindly send a notification to the editor via email.

We strongly encourage all authors to use ZOTERO, MENDELEY or END NOTE to support citation format requirements. The software will help authors to keep following comments and suggestions or let alone ideas that have been deleted or added by the reviewers. However, if the author is not familiar with the software, the journal will provide a free copy editor to adjust the final manuscript with the journal reference style. This will apply if the editor believes that the manuscript has an outstanding, rich, and complex discussion of the human rights issue. 

It is solely the author’s responsibility to ensure that the manuscripts submitted to JSEAHR are his or her original work and free of plagiarism. In this process, the editor will decide whether the manuscripts pass the plagiarism check. If the manuscript does not pass the plagiarism check, the journal will decline the manuscript but will still allow the author to re-submit the manuscript after major revisions.

All manuscripts will be assessed through a process of blind or double-blind review. JSEAHR, after receiving comments and suggestions from reviewers, retains the right to either accept or reject manuscripts submitted for publication. All accepted articles will be proofread and copy-edited by the Journal's English Language Editor, free of charge to the author.

Due to the number of manuscripts submitted to the JSEAHR, final decisions regarding publications are usually returned at least three months from the date of submission.
