The official journal title is Asian Communication Research. Abbreviated title is ACR.
ACR adopt double-blind peer review in which case, not only authors but also reviewers do not know each other. When a manuscript is received through the online review system, it is screened for its format and adherence to the aims and scope of the journal by the editors, and if it is judged as not appropriate for the journal, it is returned to the authors. If the manuscript meets these two criteria, it is dispatched to two reviewers in the field with relevant knowledge. The authorsโ names and affiliations are removed during peer review. The acceptance criteria for all papers are based on the quality and originality of the research and its scholarly and practical significance. Acceptance of the manuscript is decided based on the critiques and recommended decision of the reviewers. An initial decision will normally be made within 4 weeks of receipt of a manuscript, and the reviewersโ comments are sent to the corresponding author by e-mail. The corresponding author must indicate the alterations that have been made in response to the reviewersโ comments item by item. A final decision on acceptance/rejection for publication is forwarded to the corresponding author from the editor. During the review process, submitters will not engage in the decision process.
The governing body is the journal's editorial board:
There is no author's submission fee or other publication related fee since every cost for the publication process is supported by the publisher.
When the journal faces suspected cases of research and publication misconduct such as redundant (duplicate) publication, plagiarism, fraudulent or fabricated data, changes in authorship, an undisclosed conflict of interest, ethical problems with a submitted manuscript, a reviewer who has appropriated an authorโs idea or data, complaints against editors, and so on, the resolution process will follow the flowchart provided by the Committee on Publication Ethics (http://publicationethics.org/resources/flowcharts). The discussion and decision on the suspected cases are carried out by the Editorial Board.
Authorship and Contributorship: Authorship credit should be based on a) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; b) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; c) final approval of the version to be published, and d) agreeing to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that the questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved. Authorship should meet these four conditions. If the number of authors is equal to or greater than 2, there should be a list of each author's role in the submitted paper. Description of co-first authors or co-corresponding authors is also accepted if the corresponding author believes that such roles existed in contributing to the manuscript. Authors are obliged to participate in peer review process.
Complaints and Appeals: Authors, reviewers, and readers may register complaints and appeals in a variety of cases as follows: falsification, fabrication, plagiarism, duplicate publication, authorship dispute, conflict of interest, copyright, stolen data, defamation, and legal problem. If any individuals or institutions want to inform the cases, they can send a letter via the contact page on our website. For the complaints or appeals, concrete data with answers to all factual questions (who, when, where, what, how, why) should be provided. The editor-in-chief and editors are responsible for handling any complaints or appeals. The consequence of remedy depends on the type or degree of misconduct. The consequence of resolution will follow the guidelines of the COPE.
Conflicts of Interest: Conflict of interest exists when an author or the authorโs institution, reviewer, or editor has financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence or bias his or her actions. Any types of conflicts of interest (e.g., source of funding, paid consultant to sponsor, etc.) should be declared by the authors. If there are any conflicts of interest, authors should disclose them in the manuscript. The conflicts of interest may occur during the research process as well; however, it is important to provide disclosure. If there is a disclosure, editors, reviewers, and readers can approach the manuscript after understanding the situation and the background of the completed research.
Ethical Oversight: When the Journal faces suspected cases of research and publication misconduct such as a redundant (duplicate) publication, plagiarism, fabricated data, changes in authorship, undisclosed conflicts of interest, an ethical problem discovered with the submitted manuscript, a reviewer who has appropriated an authorโs idea or data, complaints against editors, and other issues, the resolving process will follow the flowchart provided by the Committee on Publication Ethics (http://publicationethics.org/resources/flowcharts). The Editorial Board will discuss the suspected cases and reach a decision. We will not hesitate to publish errata, corrigenda, clarifications, retractions, and apologies when needed.
Intellectual Property: All published papers become the permanent property of the Korean Society for Journalism and Communication Studies. Copyrights of all published materials are owned by the Korean Society for Journalism and Communication Studies.
Post-Publication Discussions and Corrections: The post-publication discussion is available through letter to editor. If any readers have a concern on any articles published, they can submit letter to editor on the articles. If there found any errors or mistakes in the article, it can be corrected through errata, corrigenda, or retraction.
It is to be published three times a year, in May, September, and December. Supplement issues may be published.
