This "American Review" has no named editor and a putative editorial board whose members are in Bulgaria, Russia, Kuwait, the Philippines, and Nigeria.
Editor: Prof. Dr. Billy J. Long, is an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Ferrum College. According to the journal's website, "He has published dozens of scholarly articles in corrections, policing, theory, and on myriad other topics such as illegal immigration, prostitution, and AIDS in prisons." Some of these are in other journals of ill repute. See Billy Long, Sensitizing Undergraduate Students to the Nature of White Privilege: A Guide for College Teaching, 3 Int'l J. Humanities & Social Sci. No. 14 (2013).
Editorial board: One other member of the editorial board of this "American Research Institute" journal is with a school in the US (Southeast Missouri State University). The others are in Poland, Spain, Turkey, Malaysia, Kenya, South Africa, and Iran (7/4/16).
