Engineering and Technology Horizons strives to advance the field of engineering and technology through theoretical and practical approaches. The journal's aims include:

  • To publish high-quality articles on engineering and technology, both nationally and internationally.
  • To serve as a platform for exchanging research results and knowledge in engineering and technology among students, researchers, and teachers.
  • To become a repository of valuable academic research articles in engineering and technology.

Scope of the Journal

Articles that are suitable for publication should be related to the field of engineering and technology. This includes research reports the author has experimented with, created, or directly participated in. The published article should present a new idea or principle that is supported by adequate theoretical evidence. It should also be an interesting and useful academic article for students and researchers. It is essential to note that the authors must have played a direct role in or organized the majority of the article. The journal covers the fields of engineering and technology as follows:

  • Civil engineering, environmental engineering, and engineering related to architecture
  • Electrical engineering, electronic engineering, and computer engineering
  • Chemical engineering and petroleum engineering
  • Agricultural engineering and food engineering
  • Industrial engineering, management engineering, and production engineering
  • Telecommunication engineering and information engineering
  • Mechanical engineering, rail engineering, and mechatronic engineering
  • Measurement and control engineering
  • Biomedical engineering.

Type of Article

ETH accepts two types of articles: research and academic articles.

  • Research article: A research article is a document with a form of research according to academic principles; for example, there is a hypothesis or a reasonably identified problem. In addition, it must clearly state objectives, systematic research, collect data for consideration, analysis, interpretation, and conclusion of research that can provide answers to certain objectives or principles that will lead to academic advancement or practical application.
  • Academic article: An academic article is written in the manner of analyzing, criticizing, or proposing new ideas from an academic basis that has been compiled from the academic work of one's own or that of others, or an academic article written for general knowledge for the public.

Manuscripts submitted to the journal must not have been previously published or under consideration elsewhere. Researchers must follow the highest standards of scientific integrity while submitting manuscripts, ensuring that their research is ethical and rigorous. Manuscripts presenting innovative and original research and contributing to developing new theories, methodologies, and techniques are encouraged.


All submissions must be in clear and concise English with proper grammar and correct spelling.

Peer Review

The articles will undergo a double-blind review process by at least three experts. This ensures that the reviewers' comments are academically sound and their recommendations are helpful to the authors.

Publication Frequency

The journal is published every three months, with four issues per year. 

  • Issue 1: January - March
  • Issue 2: April - June
  • Issue 3: July - September
  • Issue 4: October - December

Publication fee

Publication is free of charge as all costs are covered by the School of Engineering, King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang.



Editorial Policy

Independent reviewers will evaluate academic and research articles for publication. The articles must include substantial supported theories, innovative work, substantial experimental results, useful and constructive discussions, and academic articles in the fields of engineering and technology. An electronic journal is available on the website (https://ph01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/lej/). The Editors have the right to request revisions to the submitted manuscript before it is finally accepted. The institute and the editorial board do not take responsibility for the views or content expressed by the authors of individual articles. Acknowledgment is required for any copying.

Open Access and Archiving Policies

This journal promotes the global exchange of ideas and knowledge by providing open access to its research content.

The Engineering and Technology Horizons journal's articles are available on Thailand's central electronic journal database, Thai Journal Online (ThaiJO). You can access all the published articles for free from the archives section on their website (https://ph01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/lej/issue/archive). The authors hold the copyright of their articles, and they are permitted to self-archive their articles in PDF format.

Publication Fee Policy

The Engineering and Technology Horizons journal is an open access publication founded by the School of Engineering, King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in Thailand. Its purpose is to publish high-quality academic and research articles on engineering and technology. The journal is open to anyone whose research work meets the editorial board's criteria, and there are no page charges for submissions. The School of Engineering fully covers the cost of publication.

Peer-reviewed Policy

Manuscripts submitted to Engineering and Technology Horizons undergo editorial and peer review. Editors assess whether a manuscript is technically sound and scientifically valid before sending it for double-blind peer review. Authors can suggest peer reviewers in the ETH article submission form, but the Editor's decision is final. Authors should not recommend recent collaborators or colleagues from the same institution. If an Editor has competing interests, another member will oversee peer review. Authors should include copies of related papers with their submission.
