About This Journal
Makara Human Behavior Studies in Asia (Makara Hubs-Asia) is an open-access journal that publishes articles seeking to advance the understanding of human behavior in the context of Asia through the publication of empirical research articles that may stimulate further research. We use the word "Asia" to refer to people from the Asian continent, regardless of where they live. The journal welcomes research from any discipline that provides significant advancement of our understanding of human behavior in the context of Asia.
Makara Human Behavior Studies in Asia (Makara Hubs-Asia) is an elaboration of MAKARA Seri C: Bidang Sosial Humaniora (ISSN 1693-6701) after the name of Jurnal Penelitian Universitas Indonesia MAKARA (Research journal of Universitas Indonesia, Makara), which has been published since 1997. Starting from 2008, the journal has been periodically published twice a year (July and December). Since 2002, the journal transformed into Makara of Social Sciences and Humanities series. Later in 2014 it evolves into Makara Human Behavior Studies in Asia (Makara Hubs-Asia) with a clearer focus on human behavior instead of a broad range of humanities and social sciences issues. Full texts are available from Volume 6 No. 1 April 2002. To encourage visibility and dissemination of science, the open-access journal has been free of charge to authors and readers since its inception until today.
