The aim of the Journal is to provide a venue for disseminating and sharing scientific information related to tropical medicine and public health/public health issues in the tropics.  The Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health invites submission of manuscripts in the areas of tropical medicine and public health.  We welcome various types of manuscripts, original research, review, case report, research note and others.  As a general guide, manuscripts will be considered for publication if they contribute significantly contribute new findings to the previously mentioned areas.  Starting 01 January 2020, interested authors are invited to submit their manuscripts through our Open Journal System (OJS) at http://journal.seameotropmednetwork.org

Manuscripts that are conformed to Journal’s scope and format will go through plagiarism check and double blinded peer review process.  Review result can be either “rejected” or “major revision” or “minor revision” or “accepted as is”.  Should the manuscript be subject to “major revision”, the author(s) must revise the manuscript accordingly and resubmit within 60 days after the notification, otherwise the manuscript will be automatically withdrawn and the author(s) is/are subject to pay withdrawal fee of USD100.  As for the manuscript with “minor revision”, the revision period of 30 days is applied.  The manuscript is subject to be withdrawn if the revision period exceeds 30 days and the withdrawal fee is also applied. The accepted manuscript will go for graphic design/page layout and the acceptance letter along with an invoice for article processing charge (APC) of USD1,300 will be issued.  After receiving the APC, galley proof version will be sent to the author for final proof.

 

The process for handling cases requiring corrections, retractions, and editorial expressions of concern

As previously mentioned in Editorial Policy, in the case that the manuscript needs “major revision”, the author(s) must revise the manuscript accordingly and resubmit within 60 days after the notification, otherwise the manuscript will be automatically withdrawn and the author(s) is/are subject to pay withdrawal fee of USD100.  As for the manuscript with “minor revision”, the revision period of 30 days is applied.  The manuscript is subject to be withdrawn if the revision period exceeds 30 days and the withdrawal fee is also applied.  In addition to the research misconduct and the quality of data which are major editorial expressions of concern, the Journal Editor determines whether the manuscripts confine with the scope of the Journal and whether the author(s) follow(s) the author guidelines on the journal's website including citation and referencing format.
