Important Note to the Authors

Journal Publication is intended to further the progress of science by reporting research or reviews. So authors are expected to follow the publication ethics, and avoid data fabrication and falsification.

Plagiarism constitutes scientific misconduct and is not acceptable. All the submitted articles will be checked in for plagiarism. So authors and co-authors are expected to have made reasonable attempts to check findings before submitting to our journal for publication. Also, authors are expected to keep all research data for verification even after the publication. The failure to keep the data may be regarded as misconduct.

Submission of Manuscripts

Only original papers will be considered. Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has not been, will not be, nor is at present submitted elsewhere, and that its submission for publication has been approved by all of the authors and by the institution where the work was carried out; in addition that any person cited as a personal communication has approved such citation. Written authorisation may be required at the editor's discretion.

Articles and any other material published in the Asian Journal of Environment and Disaster Management (AJEDM) represent the opinions of the author(s) and should not be construed to reflect the opinions of the editor(s) and the publisher.

Authors submitting a manuscript do so with the understanding that if it is accepted for publication, copyright in the article, including the right to reproduce the article in all forms and media, shall be assigned exclusively to the publisher. The publisher will not refuse any reasonable request by the author for permission to reproduce any of his/her contributions to AJEDM.

Length of paper

The usual length of paper should be restricted to 8,000 words. However, longer paper can be considered by the editorial team, when applicable. The page limit of paper is 15 pages. Longer paper will be subjected to a delay in publication.

List of Symbols

The manuscript should contain a list of all symbols used in the paper. They should be identified typographically for the printer, not mathematically. This list will not appear in print, but is essential to avoid publication delay.


Text footnotes should be avoided whenever possible. If they must be used, indicate them by superscript lower-case letters in the text.


Equations should be typewritten and with the number placed in parentheses at the right margin. Reference to the equations should use the form "Eq. (3)" or simply "(3)".


References are to be listed in the order cited in the text. References in the text are to be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals, in the order of first appearance. They can be typed in superscripts after punctuation marks, e.g. in the statement.2

Reports should not be cited unless absolutely necessary.


Tables should be numbered with Arabic numerals in order of appearance in the text. Each table should have a short descriptive caption. Table footnotes should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters.


Figures should be numbered (with Arabic numerals) in order of appearance and should have short descriptive captions. Line drawings must be professionally drafted originals, in black ink, with lettering large enough to be legible after a reduction of 50-60%. No figures should exceed 8.5 x 11 inch in size; they should be designed to fit the proportions of the printed page. Illustrations in colour can be accepted only if the authors defray the cost.


Reprints may be purchased; quotes to be provided by publisher upon request.
