Submission Guidelines

The TEJ is a double-blind peer reviewed journal. Manuscripts could be written in English or Thai, and submission of the paper is held to imply that it contains original and unpublished work which is not under the consideration for publication elsewhere.

Manuscripts must be submitted online via Editorial Manager (Please refer to submission details below). Copyrights of the accepted and submitted papers will be held under the publisher.


All submissions to TEJ are handled electronically. Manuscripts must be submitted online via Editorial Manager, a fully web-based submission, peer-review, and tracking system. For New Authors, if you are submitting via this new system for the first time, you are firstly required to register. From this account created, you will be able to monitor your own submissions and make subsequent submissions. By submitting your paper to the TEJ, the authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, not under simultaneous consideration by another journal, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Relevant previous work by other researchers and by the author(s) should be appropriately acknowledged and cited. Any form of plagiarism, in part or in whole and including the author's own previous work, will not be tolerated. The TEJ reserves the right to use software to detect plagiarism.

The first page of the manuscript should contain the following information: (i) the title; (ii) the name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) of the author(s); (iii) an abstract of not more than 200 words.

Peer Review Policy

We are committed to prompt evaluation and publication of fully accepted papers in all World Scientific and Imperial College Press journals. To maintain a high-quality publication, all submissions undergo a rigorous review process. Characteristics of the peer review process are as follows:

Simultaneous submissions of the same manuscript to different journals will not be tolerated.

Manuscripts with contents outside the scope will not be considered for review.

TEJ is a double-blind peer reviewed journal.

Papers will be refereed by at least 2 experts as suggested by the editorial board.

In addition, Editors will have the option of seeking additional reviews when needed. Authors will be informed when Editors decide further review is required.

All publication decisions are made by the journal's Editors-in-Chief on the basis of the referees' reports. Authors of papers that are not accepted are notified promptly.

All submitted manuscripts are treated as confidential documents. We expect our Board of Reviewing Editors and reviewers to treat manuscripts as confidential material as well.

Editors and reviewers involved in the review process should disclose conflicts of interest resulting from direct competitive, collaborative, or other relationships with any of the authors, and remove oneself from cases in which such conflicts preclude an objective evaluation. Privileged information or ideas that are obtained through peer review must not be used for competitive gain.
