Call for Manuscript (New)

Welcome to AJUE’s Online Submission page. AJUE accepts online submissions through Malaysian Journal Management System (MyJMS) hosted by the Citation and Informetric Division under the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education. Due to the volume of manuscripts received by the journal, all submissions must be made using our online submission system to ensure an organized and speedy review process. To date, the journal does not have any article processing charges (APC) and article submission charges. The journal allows the author(s) to hold the copyright without restrictions.

Authors can upload manuscript files (i.e. article text, figures, charts, and supplementary information) to the system and remain informed about the status of their submission via e-notifications or by logging into the system. Authors are reminded not to submit revisions as a new submission.
