The Chiang Mai Journal of Science is an international English language peer-reviewed journal which is published in open access electronic format 6 times a year in January, March, May, July, September and November by the Faculty of Science, Chiang Mai University. Manuscripts in most areas of science are welcomed except in areas such as agriculture, engineering and medical science which are outside the scope of the Journal. Currently, we focus on manuscripts in biology, chemistry, physics, materials science and environmental science. Papers in mathematics are also included but should be of an applied nature rather than purely theoretical. Manuscripts describing experiments on humans or animals are required to provide proof that all experiments have been carried out according to the ethical regulations of the respective institutional and/or governmental authorities and this should be clearly stated in the manuscript itself. The Editor reserves the right to reject manuscripts that fail to do so.
Papers which have already been published in other journals or which are under consideration by other journals should not be submitted. Similarly, papers published here should not be submitted to other journals. Manuscripts that are suspected to involve plagiarism or other types of ethical misconduct, including but not limited to duplicate publication, multiple submission or salami slicing will also be rejected. As from 1 January 2022, manuscripts that are submitted on or after this date and have passed successfully through peer review and been accepted will be subject to a publication fee of 350 US$ (if from overseas) or 10,000 Baht (if from within Thailand) before they can be published.
