Focus and Scope

Publication of the journal started in 1974. Its original name was “KKU Engineering Journal”. English and Thai manuscripts were accepted. The journal was originally aimed at publishing research that was conducted and implemented in the northeast of Thailand. It is regarded a national journal and has been indexed in the Thai-journal Citation Index (TCI) database since 2004. The journal now accepts only English language manuscripts and became open-access in 2015 to attract more international readers. It was renamed Engineering and Applied Science Research in 2017. The editorial team agreed to publish more international papers, therefore, the new journal title is more appropriate. The journal focuses on research in the field of engineering that not only presents highly original ideas and advanced technology, but also are practical applications of appropriate technology.
