HUBS Asia is an open-access journal that publishes empirical research on human behaviour in Asia. The journal welcomes quantitative and/or qualitative articles from various disciplines in social sciences and humanities as long as they focus on human behaviour. For this purpose, "Asia" refers to Asian people, regardless where they live. Novel ideas and originality that trigger further research are emphasized. Research on frontier issues in human behavior are strongly encouraged. Double blind review is observed.
The journal is formerly known as MAKARA Seri C: Bidang Sosial Humaniora (issn 1693-6701). Prior to that, it was known as Jurnal Penelitian Universitas Indonesia MAKARA (Research journal of Universitas Indonesia, Makara), which has been published since 1997.
