Focus and Scope
ASEAN Marketing Journal (AMJ) is dedicated to exploring, disseminating and discussing the latest issues and developments of marketing, particularly those related or relevant to the advancement of marketing in South East Asia and beyond.
The mission of the editorial board of AMJ is to present the latest thinking and research that tests, extends, and develops management theories or those contributes to marketing practices. Of particular interest are those contributions that share experience and suggest innovative solutions to ongoing or new concerns of those interested marketing issues.
To be published in AMJ, a manuscript must make strong empirical and theoretical contributions and highlight the significance of those contributions to the marketing field. Thus, preference is given to submissions that test, extend, or build strong theoretical frameworks while empirically examining issues with high importance for marketing theory and practice.
Topic of interest: marketing in emerging economies, marketing ethics, consumer welfare, and marketing and public policy.
|Open Submissions||Indexed||Peer Reviewed|
Peer Review Process
ASEAN Marketing Journal adopts double blind peer review whereby reviewers are unaware of author identity, and vice versa, author are also unaware of reviewer identity.
All submitted manuscripts to ASEAN Marketing Journal are checked for plagiarism using iThenticate
The journal publishes new issues every June and December each year.
Open Access Policy
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
Statement of Ethics
STATEMENT OF ETHICS
Adapted from the principles of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)
This is the statement of ethics for journals published by the Management Research Center (MRC), i.e. The South East Asian Journal of Management (SEAM), Indonesian Capital Market Review (ICMR) and the ASEAN Marketing Journal (AMJ). This statement covers code of ethics for authors, editors and reviewers.
CODE OF ETHICS FOR AUTHORS
Authors must submit original works only.
Authors must not submit the same work to other journal at the same time or while the manuscript is under review. Authors must wait for a rejection decision or formally request for withdrawal before submitting to another journal.
The manuscript must not have been previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere, except as a conference proceedings paper, where the paper is work in progress toward the submitted manuscript. Author must inform in the manuscript if it was published previously as conference paper.
Author must properly cite all existing works which may overlaps or used as material for the manuscript, both in the body text and in the reference list.
Authors must explicitly cite their own earlier works used as material in the manuscript. If exact sentences or paragraphs that appear in another work by the Author are included in the manuscript, the material should be put in quotation marks and appropriately cited in a way that does not compromise the double-blind review process.
The manuscript should identify the origin and originality, of the datasets used in the paper, such as data collected through survey. Authors should mention if the dataset has been used elsewhere by this or another Author, whether published or not.
Plagiarism and Self-Plagiarism:
All work in the manuscript should be free of any plagiarism, falsification, fabrications, or omission of significant material.
Authors are expected to explicitly cite others' work and ideas, even if the work or ideas are not quoted verbatim or paraphrased. This standard applies whether the previous work is published, unpublished, or electronically available. Failure to properly cite the work of others may constitute plagiarism. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
Redundancy (or “self-plagiarism”) is an unacceptable publishing behavior. Redundancy can occur in at least two ways: (1) Authors recycle portions of their previous writings by using identical or nearly identical sentences or paragraphs from earlier writings in subsequent research papers, without quotation or acknowledgement; or (2) Authors create multiple papers that are slight variations on each other, which are submitted for publication in different journals but without acknowledgement of the other papers.
Authors can and often do develop different aspects of an argument in more than one manuscript. However, manuscripts that differ primarily in appearance, but are presented as separate and distinct research without acknowledging other related work, constitute attempts (whether unintentional or deliberate) to deceive reviewers and readers by overinflating the intellectual contribution of the manuscript. Since publication decisions are influenced by the novelty and innovativeness of manuscripts, such deception is inappropriate and unethical.
If exact sentences or paragraphs that appear in another work by the Author are included in the manuscript, the material must be put in quotation marks and appropriately cited.
MRC reserves the right to evaluate issues of plagiarism and redundancy on a case-by-case basis.
Conflicts of Interest:
Authors should avoid conflicts of interest or the appearance of conflicts of interest throughout the research process. Conflicts of interest may influence the judgment of Authors, Reviewers, and Editors.
All such interests (or their absence) should be declared in writing by Authors upon submission of the manuscript. If any are declared, they should be published with the article. If there is doubt about whether a circumstance represents a conflict, it should be disclosed, so that Editors may assess its significance. Any queries about possible conflicts of interest should be addressed to the MRC Office or the Editor-in-Chiefs of the respective journals.
MRC journals follow double-blind review process, whereby Authors do not know Reviewers and vice versa. Authors should respect the confidentiality of the review process and should not reveal themselves to Reviewers, and vice versa. For example, the manuscript should not include any self-revealing information that would identify the Author to a Reviewer.
Authors have the ultimate responsibility for all materials included in a submitted manuscript. Authors are obligated to present an accurate account of the research performed as well as an objective discussion of the significance of the research.
Authors should report their findings fully and should not omit data that are relevant within the context of the research question(s). Results should be reported whether they support or contradict expected outcomes. Authors should take particular care to present relevant qualifications to their research or to the findings and interpretations of them. Underlying assumptions, theories, methods, measures and research designs relevant to the findings and interpretations of their work should be disclosed.
The manuscript should contain sufficient detail and references to permit peers with access to the same dataset to repeat the work.
All Co-Authors of papers should have made significant contributions to the work and share accountability for the results. Authorship and credit should be shared in proportion to the various parties' contributions. Authors should take responsibility and credit, including authorship credit, only for work they have actually performed or to which they have contributed. Other contributions should be cited in the manuscript's Acknowledgements or an endnote.
Authors should normally list a student as the principal Co-Author on multiple-authored publications that substantially derive from the student's dissertation or thesis.
Authors who analyze data from others should explicitly acknowledge the contribution of the initial researchers.
Authors have a responsibility to preserve and protect the privacy, dignity, well-being and freedom of human subjects and research participants. Informed consent should be sought from all human subjects, and if confidentiality or anonymity is requested it should be honored.
Manuscripts involving human subjects (surveys, simulations, interviews) should comply with the relevant Human Subject Protocol requirements at the Author's university.
Authors should check their manuscripts for possible breaches of copyright law (e.g., where permissions are needed for quotations, artwork or tables taken from other publications) and secure the necessary permissions before submission.
Authors should be prompt with their manuscript revisions. If an Author cannot meet the deadline given, the Author should contact the Managing Editor as soon as possible to determine whether a longer time period or withdrawal from the review process should be chosen.
Authors must ask for permission to publish their article (or a selection from the article) elsewhere, such as an article later appearing as a book chapter or as a translation.
