Self-Citation Restriction Policy:
Self-citation refers to when an author refers to previous works written by him/her alone or in co-authorship and cites them. Self-cites are used to compare the current results of research with earlier findings when continuing to study the same subject. It seems that the only reasonable solution to the issues of self-plagiarism, research integrity, and originality is to limit the number of self-citations. The AU-HIU International Multidisciplinary Journal self-citation restriction policy regulates that the self-citation level should not exceed 15% for authors and 20% for co-authors together, and 15% for the AU-HIU International Multidisciplinary Journal. If the reference checker (software) finds that the author (s) broke the rules, then the manuscript will be automatically rejected by the Desk Editor without further review.

Submission to Editorial Head Office and Revision Invitation Policy (Updated on January 2021): Please note that the Editorial Board of the journal will be very selective, accepting only articles based on scholarly merit, research significance, research integrity, and complete compliance with the journal guidelines (APA 7th edition)

The AU-HIU International Multidisciplinary Journal Editorial Board respects and promotes all authors and contributors based on research ability and experience without considering race, ethnicity, nationality, citizenship, or any narrow frames of reference.

All submissions to the journal are assessed in two stages. The first stage is an editorial screening where we evaluate whether a paper is likely to get through the peer review process or not. If the editors' team does not believe that the submission is suitable for the aims and scope, standards, and Editorial Board’s selection policy of the journal, then the submission will be rejected at the front stage. In the second stage, the submissions we decide to take forward for the peer review process fully need to be well structured, well written, a good presentation of proficiency in English, firmly anchored in existing academic literature, and complete compliance with the journal style and template. Only after careful consideration by the editors' team based on editorial grounds, will the editors' team selectively send the paper out to external peer reviewers. The same rules will be strictly applied to all submissions.

The AU-HIU International Multidisciplinary Journal is an Open Access journal accessible for free on the Internet. Yet, the electronic publication process does involve costs, including those pertaining to setup and maintenance of the publication infrastructure, routine operation of the journal, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, editing, publishing, maintaining the scholarly record, and archiving. To cover these costs, the journal depends on APC, also called Publication Fee (3,000 THB or 125 USD) per article, so that APC is mandatory (the mandatory policy of APC has been enforced since 2020). 

The cost of APC is very often assumed either by the organization funding the research published in the article or by the institution at which the author is employed or by the author himself. Authors pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review administration and management, professional production of articles in PDF and other formats, and dissemination of published papers in various venues, in addition to other publishing functions. There are no surcharges based on the length of an article, figures, or supplementary data.

[Important: After the external reviews are completed, if the paper is accepted in favor of publication in the journal, an invoice for APC will be followed. Based on an invoice, the author should make a payment to APC. Before the paper is finally accepted, any payment does not count any credit toward its acceptance for publication.]

Payment Options for APC:
1) With a Credit Card: Electronic payment account will be provided upon request.
2) By Bank Wire Transfer
[Note: Under the present situation of Covid-19, AU-HIU International Multidisciplinary Journal has waived APC.]
