About Exclusives

AEI publishes Exclusives, an original online publication on topics concerning international business, specifically Asia. All issues of the Exclusives are available for free. Exclusives maintains the highest level of scholarly integrity. Therefore, AEI is quite flexible in terms of the style and approach of prospective authors and does not seek to influence authors in their topic choice and encourages provocative yet substantive submissions. Exclusives are published periodically when an appropriate number of articles have been received, reviewed and approved. This has generally been about one issue per month, but varies as events of interest happen and seasonal fluctuations in submissions occur. All published articles are original works based on the research and analysis of the author. Publication of an opinion or viewpoint within Exclusives doesn't reflect endorsement by the AEI. Because an official Institute-wide position would interfere with the intellectual independence of individual scholars and journalists, AEI takes no institutional positions on policy issues or attempts to influence legislative bodies.
