The Journal of Southeast Asian Economies (JSEAE) is an authoritative source on economic issues facing countries in the Southeast Asian region and is oriented at both researchers and policymakers. 

Submissions are invited from all scholars. Past contributors to our publication include renowned scholars as well as younger professionals. We particularly encourage submissions from young professionals, including those who have recently completed their PhD or are at an advanced stage in their doctoral research. Articles should be of contemporary economic interest and have clear policy relevance. They should be pertinent to Southeast Asian countries or regional economic groupings such as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Full research articles should be between 7,000 and 8,000 words in length. Research notes, which would include reports of research findings of shorter length, as well as reports of ongoing research projects, are also invited and should be between 4,000 and 5,000 words in length. All submissions must be accompanied by an abstract of approximately 100 to 150 words, four to five keywords and a note on the author’s affiliation. Articles should also be of a high standard of English (i.e., they should be clear, well-articulated, and comprehensible).The broad format should be scholarly but tables, figures, citations, footnotes, and quotations should be kept to a minimum level essential for the analysis or descriptions intended. 

The manuscript should be submitted as softcopy in Microsoft Word format.
