Content

The Asia Watch seeks fact-based analysis and opinion outside the confines of partisan politics and the framework offered by the mainstream media. Please conduct a fact-check of your work carefully. Particularly if your article is about something controversial, it’s best to provide sources to support your assertions.

Please notify the editor if your work has been published previously and, if so, whether you would require attribution to the original publication. If you are submitting an exclusive to The Asia Watch, please be sure to mention that this is the case so that can be taken into consideration.

Articles inciting violence, encouraging or defending violations of national and international law, which are prejudicial towards individuals’ rights, etc., will be rejected.

Bio and description

Please include a short bio with your submission to let readers know a little bit about you; just something brief to let people know who you are. If you would like links to your website or social media (e.g., Facebook page, Twitter profile) to be featured with your bio, send them along.

Regular contributors may also be added to the featured writer page. If you contribute regularly and would like to be included, don’t hesitate to send an e-mail to the editor with the request. (Note: The Asia Watch does not publish articles by anonymous writers)

Submitted articles should be in final draft form. Please take care to proofread your own work before submitting it. Articles are carefully reviewed before publication, but submissions that at a glance would clearly require extensive proofing and revision will be rejected.

If the editor decides that your article requires any kind of significant revision before publication, you will be notified and given the opportunity to revise your draft and/or approve of any proposed changes. Any proposed revisions are intended only to improve the accuracy and quality of each article. minor editorial revisions that don’t go to substance may be made without notification, and your title may also be revised (if you don’t want your title to be revised, please make sure that any reader scanning the headline will know what your article is about).
