Instructions for authors and template
A proper introductory e-mail page containing the title of the submitted article and certifying its originality should be sent to the editor (Duang Buddhasukh, e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org). The manuscript proper together with a list of suggested referees should be attached in separate files. The list should contain at least 5 referees with appropriate expertise. Three referees should be non-native from 3 different countries. Each referee's academic/professional position, scientific expertise, full affiliation and e-mail address must be given. The referees should not be affiliated to the same university/institution as any of the authors, nor should any two referees come from the same university/institution. The editorial team, however, retain the sole right to decide whether or not the suggested referees are approached. Every paper will be subjected to a double-blind peer review.
Any paper previously published in the proceedings of a conference/symposium must be extended and upgraded in content to meet the requirements of a full article suitable for a journal. Such a paper must also be notified and supplied upon submission.
Failure to conform to the above instructions will result in non-consideration of the submission.
Please also ensure that English and style is properly edited before submission. UK style of spelling should be used. Manuscript with substandard English and style will not be considered.
Warning : Plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, repeated publication, etc. may be checked for at the last stage of processing and, if detected, will result in a rejection and blacklisting.
Notification : If a manuscript is accepted for further consideration, its identification no. will be immediately issued and notified to its corresponding author.
Manuscripts must be prepared in English using a word processor. MS Word for Windows, and .doc or .rtf files are preferred. Manuscripts may be prepared with other software provided that the full document (with figures, schemes and tables inserted into the text) is exported to a MS Word format for submission. Times or Times New Roman font is preferred. The font size should be 12 pt and the line spacing 'multiple 1.15'. A4 paper size is used and margins must be 1.5 cm on top, 2.0 cm at the bottom and 2.0 cm on both left and right sides of the paper. Authors are also asked to provide a .pdf format of their manuscript. Under the above settings, a manuscript submitted should not be longer than 15 pages for a full paper or 20 pages for a review paper.
A template file may be downloaded from the Maejo Int. J. Sci. Technol. homepage. (DOWNLOAD HERE)
Authors' full mailing addresses, homepage addresses, phone and fax numbers, and e-mail addresses homepages can be included in the title page and these will be published in the manuscripts and the Table of Contents. The corresponding author should be clearly identified. It is the corresponding author's responsibility to ensure that all co-authors are aware of and approve of the contents of a submitted manuscript.
A brief (200 word maximum) Abstract should be provided. The use in the Abstract of numbers to identify compounds should be avoided unless these compounds are also identified by names.
A list of three to five keywords must be given and placed after the Abstract. Keywords may be single words or very short phrases.
Although variations in accord with contents of a manuscript are permissible, in general all papers should have the following sections: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgments (if applicable) and References.
Authors are encouraged to prepare Figures and Schemes in colour. Full colour graphics will be published free of charge.
Tables and Figures should be inserted into the main text, and numbers and titles supplied for all Tables and Figures. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. To facilitate layout of large tables, smaller fonts may be used, but in no case should these be less than 10 pt in size. Authors should use the Table option of MS Word to create tables, rather than tabs, as tab-delimited columns are often difficult to format in .pdf for final output.
Figures, tables and schemes should also be placed in numerical order in the appropriate place within the main text. Numbers, titles and legends should be provided for all tables, schemes and figures. Chemical structures and reaction schemes should be drawn using an appropriate software package designed for this purpose. As a guideline, these should be drawn to a scale such that all the details and text are clearly legible when placed in the manuscript (i.e. text should be no smaller than 8-9 pt).
For bibliographic citations, the reference numbers should be placed in square brackets, i.e. [ ], and placed before the punctuation, for example  or [1-3], and all the references should be listed separately and as the last section at the end of the manuscript.

Manuscript Revision Time
Authors who are instructed to revise their manuscript should do so within 45 days. Otherwise the revised manuscript will be regarded as a new submission.
Manuscript Processing Time
As a result of a large number of submissions, there may be a long delay in the evaluation or publication of a paper. A duration of 8 months or longer between submission and acceptance (or rejection) can normally be expected. (The journal has no policy in issuing an acceptance letter before publication.)
Publication Fee (Open-Access Charge)
A paper which has been accepted for publication will be subjected to an open-access charge of US$ 200 or THB 6,000.
