Types of paper:
Full length articles are typically 10-15 manuscript pages (including tables and figures). The articles may cover a variety of topics which are related to science or technology. Articles must use previously published works to support the discussion of a particular subject or topic.
Submission of an manuscript implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the copyright-holder.
Articles and any other material published in the Suan Sunandha Science and Technology Journal the opinions of the author(s) and should not be construed to reflect the opinions of the editor(s) or the publisher.

For submission of all manuscripts, follow the instructions of the online submission system. Hard copy submissions cannot be accepted. Before submission, prepare and keep ready all information on the manuscript (title, full name and affiliation of all authors, abstract, name of all files to be submitted).The author submitting the manuscript will be corresponding author. All submitted articles should report original, previously unpublished research results, experimental or theoretical, and will be peer-reviewed.
Role of the funding agency: You are requested to identify who provided financial support for conducting the research and/or preparation of the article and to briefly describe the role of the sponsor(s), if any, in study design; in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data; in the writing of the report; and in the decision to submit the article for publication. If the funding source(s) had no such involvement then this should be stated.

Peer review: All published journal papers are refereed by the international competent researchers and scientists. Therefore, a full double - blind international refereeing process is used in which 1) Papers are sent to reviewers for their peer review process. 2) The reviewers' recommendations determine whether a paper will be accepted / accepted subject to change / subject to resubmission with significant changes / rejected. For papers which require changes, the same reviewers will be used to ensure that the quality of the revised paper is acceptable. All papers are refereed, and the Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to refuse any typescript, whether on invitation or otherwise, and to make suggestions and/or modifications before publication.
Manuscripts must be submitted by the senior author, who must accept responsibility on behalf of all authors for all ethical requirements. The author submitting the manuscript will be listed as the corresponding author in the published version of each accepted manuscript. There are no submission fees or page charges.
Revised manuscripts should be returned including revision notes. The revision notes should address the issues raised in the referee report and clearly state per page (indicate paragraph and line) which changes have been made. Additional materials may be requested at the discretion of the editor. Authors requested to revise their submission to Suan Sunandha Science and Technology Journal will be given 4 weeks in which to submit the revised submission. Revised submissions received after 4 weeks from the time at which the revision was requested will be considered as new submissions.
There are no strict requirements on reference formatting at submission. But the authors are expect to follow the American Psychological Association (APA) style.

Use of DOI is highly encouraged.
Subdivision - numbered sections
Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.
Full-length articles published in the Suan Sunandha Science and Technology Journal should include a title, the author’s name, the author’s address and/or email address, Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Acknowledgements, References, followed by Figure Legends.
Title: Concise and informative. This should briefly summarize the scope of the article. Avoid abbreviations and formulas where possible. The title should be centered at the top of the page s. e.g., Notes on the Biology of Varanus semiremix
Authors name and affiliation: The full names referenced by numerical superscripts with affiliation and addresses of all authors, and the full address of the corresponding author. The name of the corresponding author along with phone, fax and E-mail information. e.g.
