Thank you for choosing to submit your paper to us, Asian communication Research. ACR is a refereed international publication that publishes high-quality, original research. Please see the journalโs Aims and Scope for more information about its focus. Manuscripts of sufficient quality that meet the aims and scope of ACR will be reviewed. Please read the guidelines below and follow them as closely as possible so your paper can move through peer review smoothly. Manuscripts not conforming to these guidelines may be returned. There is no fee for submission and processing of manuscripts from authors.
ACR follows a double-blind peer review process. All submitted manuscripts that the editors consider potentially suitable for ACR are reviewed blind, normally by two referees. A third referee may be used when the editors think that additional expertise would be beneficial. The referees are drawn from members of the editorial board or other specialists in a particular field. Based on the reviews, the editors will make an editorial decision from the four options: a) accept, b) accept with revisions, c) revise and resubmit, and d) reject. The editors will provide comments to authors including either suggested revisions or reasons for rejecting the paper. We aim to make an initial decision on whether to send for review within two weeks of the paper reaching the editors, and the first decision within eight weeks of initial submission.
Asian Communication Research accepts the following types of articles: original research, research insight, and book review, all of which undergo rigorous peer review.
