  1. Peer review

The KKU Science Journal uses the double-blinded peer-review system for reviewing articles for publication. The authors are to submit, along with the manuscript, the names, addresses, and e-mails of three experts in the field. However, the editors reserve the right to choose the expert(s) other than the ones submitted. The manuscripts submitted for publication will be peer-reviewed by at least three qualified peer reviewers from Khon Kaen University and other institutions. Once peer-reviewing is complete, the editorial team will inform the decision to the authors. The manuscript can be either “revised before publication”, “published without revision”, or “rejected”. The decision by the panel of peer-reviewers is to be sent via email to the authors. Prior to publication, the editorial team will ask the authors to proofread the manuscript. Importantly, proofreading does not allow the authors to alter the content of the manuscript including the names of the authors. if there is no response from the author within the specified period, the editorial team considers the article to be accurate and complete.


  1. Revised submission

The authors can submit the revised articles for consideration by the editors via the submission system of the journal’s website at https://ph01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/KKUSciJ/index

    • Citation: the name-and-year-in-parentheses system is used. Cite their first names in case of the Thai authors and their surnames in case of the foreign authors or cite the name of the juristic person who prepared the document. Specify the year of publication of the referenced document in parentheses. For example, Somsak and Somsri (1992) reported that ... or ... (Somsak and Somsri, 1992). In the case that there are three authors or more, use the word "et al.". If you cite multiple documents on the same topic, follow this example: (Somsak, 1992; Somsri, 1997; Williams, 2009) by arranging Thai before English, and sorting the order by year of publication.
    • References: Use normal letters of size 14. Thai documents precede English ones. Sort them in an alphabetical order (consonants and vowels). If there are multiple documents written by the same author(s), sort them by year of publication. The following details how to reference different types of documents in the KKU science journals.
