The journal was established in 1995, and is fully owned and operated by the Assumption University of Thailand. The president of the university, the vice president of the academic affairs and the dean of Martin de Tours School of Management and Economics serve as academic advisors. The Department of Insurance provides active professional support. The first managing editor was Mr. Sunda followed by Asst. Professor Dr. Brian Lawrence. He was replaced by Asst. Professor Dr. Nopphon Tangjitprom in 2016, who served as the managing editor of the journal until January 2020. The current management is listed under Editorial Board.
Members of editorial board will never process a paper authored by someone from their home institution, unless it is a student's submission. As result, this journal does not publish papers written by faculty members of Assumption University of Thailand. Editors will reject papers that are plagiarised, out of the cope of the journal, or poorly written, but with exception of these they will judge papers solely based on the opinion of peer reviewers. The reviewers cannot be from the same institution as authors. This policy is effective from January 2020.
The university and the editorial board do not take responsibility for the views expressed by individual authors, they only facilitate academic publishing.
