Announcement on the National Taiwan University website.

Announcement on the Asian Center of WTO & International Health Law and Policy website

It is well known that the evaluation criteria for journals to be indexed in the SSCI are extremely stringent, with an average rejection rate of 9 out of 10 journals submitted. Therefore, with AJWH being indexed, your hard work and dedication has paid off, and this is a monumental achievement. - Gary Liang of Thompson Reuters.
