The Editorial Board of the Asian International Journal of Social Sciences (AIJSS) follows the guidelines on academic writing and academic ethics as articulated in the research by Miguel Roig (2003, 2006, 2015), for the United States’ Department of Health and Human Services.

The Editorial Board suggests to potential contributors of AIJSS, reviewers and readers to carefully follow these guidelines in order to avoid misconceptions in academic writing and publishing. Editors will blind referee all manuscripts as will reviewers, to the guidelines explicitly highlighted by COPE http://publicationethics.org .
