In this Issue
The Journal of Southeast Asian Economies (JSEAE) is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on economic issues pertaining to countries in the region – defined as the ten members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and East Timor. JSEAE welcomes articles using orthodox economic approaches as well as those of a more heterodox nature. Oriented at both researchers and policy-makers, the journal seeks to reconcile the ideals of relevance, methodological rigour, and accessibility.
JSEAE is published three times a year, in April, August, and December. Each issue includes: articles based on original research; research notes; review articles; and book reviews. Once a year, the Journal publishes a Special Issue devoted entirely to a topic of import for the region.
JSEAE was published under its former title of ASEAN Economic Bulletin through Volume 29, Number 3, December 2012, (E-ISSN: 1793-2831, Print ISSN: 0217-4472).
