Conflict of Interest

The primary responsibility of the Content Selection Committee is to provide a clear and unbiased decision for the inclusion of journals in its database. In the process to approve a journal for inclusion in ADL, all our members are required to avoid conflict of interest such as their own participation or contribution in any means with other journals. For cases like these, the member has to ensure that they are not part of the decision for the application of journals which might have a conflict of interest. We also require a clear disclosure from all our members for affiliations, funding sources, or financial holdings associated with any journal that might raise questions about possible sources of bias.

Content Selection Policy

The Asian Digital Library establishes the following criteria to evaluate and qualify journals for inclusion in the Asian Digital Library. A number of factors are taken into consideration when evaluating journals for coverage in the ADL.

Minimum criteria:

  • The journal should have an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN)
  • The journal should follow the publishing standards (peer review, timeliness, ethical publishing practices)
  • International Editorial Board
  • International Focus
  • Publication policies
  • Publication practices
  • Integrity
  • The Asian Digital Library reserves the right to immediately reject an application or remove a journal after inclusion if any information submitted is found to be falsified. Any instance of deception by the journal will result in immediate removal from the database.
