As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, DOI number or URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is justified and 1.15 spaced; uses a 10-point Arial font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • The manuscript is prepared according to AsianJDE template.

The Asian Journal of Distance Education publishes peer-reviewed articles and other information for researchers and others interested in open learning and distance education in Asia. Manuscripts are welcomed, and elicited, for any of the following Sections in each Issue; Articles, Focus Reports, Work-in-Progress, Comments, Conference Reports, Book Reviews, Calendar, and e-Notes. These are described in turn, and further details are available from the Editor(s). A Template is available for Authors whose Paper has been accepted, and this is available here at AjDE template.

Authors are especially advised to keep Figures and Tables to within a 7cm or 15cm width, in png. or jpg. /jpeg. Format with high resolution. Other formats such as tiff are also acceptable. Figures are usually built up by author(s) using drawing software with text boxes and so on – these components should be grouped to form a single image. Prospective authors are reminded that it is their responsibility to obtain any rights to include content in their manuscript, and submission of any manuscript for consideration is taken to indicate that any such rights have been duly obtained. Mention of the same must be given in the manuscript, as required. Manuscripts should be in English, typed in Arial 10-point font in a justified single-column format. Indicate any disclaimer or note of prior partial publication or adaptation clearly, and this will be added as a footnote on either the first or the final page. The text of the abstract is in single-column format at 150 mm line width. Accordingly, Tables and Figures should fit the template provided. Colours may be used, but the author(s) should try to limit their use to the standard cross-platform web-safe colours. Authors might like to restrict their use of colours to black-and-white which will be facsimile-and-printer-friendly – taking into kind consideration that some researchers may not have access to colour printers. Any photograph(s) (and if desired Figures) may be given in gif or jpg format. Writing style should follow where possible the most recent American Psychological Association (APA6): for details see APA guidelines , or contact their Order Department, American Psychological Association, P.O. Box 2710, Hyattsville, MD 20784, USA, or see previous Issues of this Journal for guidance. Alternatively, you can benefit from Purdue Owl Guideline

We have prepared a template as a guide for prospective authors. Authors are urged to fit their manuscript to this given template to promote the timely publication. Articles, Focus Reports, Work-in-Progress, Comments, Conference Reports, Book Reviews, Calendar, and e-Notes are each in this same format.

The first page(s) should contain the Title, Author(s), ORCID, and their respective current affiliation and country. Then a footnote within 40 character-spaces, email address, affiliation and ORCID, and up to five key-words or key-terms for indexing, plus a short autobiographical description of the first Author and any other Authors if given within a total of 50 words at the end of the manuscript. The Editor will hide the Author identification on the first page during the blind review. No indication of the identity of the Author(s) should be on any other page. The blind review will be by two or more referees.
