Notes for Contributors

Referees and submissions. NAJUA: History of Architecture and Thai Architecture is a refereed journal. Articles submitted to NAJUA should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time. If another version of the article is under consideration by another publication, or has been, or will be published elsewhere, authors should clearly indicate this at the time of submission.

Language/Length. Articles can be in Thai or English and up to 6000-8000 words in length and may include up to twenty images that will be printed in black/white at approximately A4 size.

Abstract. An abstract is required and should not exceed 500 words in length. If the manuscript is in Thai, abstract in English is required.

Author note. Details of the author’s institutional affiliation, full address and other contact information should be included on a separate cover sheet. The custom is without titles, one forename plus surname.

Peer-review process. The submitted manuscript will be sent to two independent reviewers who will advise the Editor as to its suitability and standard. Authors will be informed of the decision and, if considered suitable, how the paper may need to be revised or improved to a standard suitable for publication. Final versions of papers and images must be submitted in electronic form via the ThaiJo/NAJUA website or the Editor’s email.

Figures and illustrations. All photographs, diagrams, charts and graphs (but not tables) should follow the same numerical sequence and be shown as Figure 1, Figure 2 etc. Electronic versions of illustrations and tables are preferably either TIFF or JPG formats.

Captions. All illustrations should be accompanied by a caption, which should include the figure number, and an acknowledgement to the holder of the copyright. It is the author’s responsibility to ensure the proper permissions are obtained.

Notes and references. The journal uses Chicago Humanities style of referencing, with a reference list.

Endnotes. Please use no more than 50 endnotes; neighbouring references should be bunched into a single endnote.

Reference List. The reference list should include only material cited in the endnotes. The reference list contains works to which a reader could reasonably be expected to make reference, mainly books and articles. Do not include websites, newspapers, archive records etc.; the endnote will suffice for these.

Copyright. It is a condition of publication that authors assign copyright or licence the publication rights in their articles, including abstracts, to NAJUA: History of Architecture and Thai Architecture. This enables us to ensure full copyright protection and to disseminate the article, and of course the Journal, to the widest possible readership in print and electronic formats as appropriate. Authors may, of course, use the article elsewhere after publication without prior permission from the Journal, provided that acknowledgement is given to the Journal as the original source of publication, and that the Journal is notified so that our records show that its use is properly authorised. Authors are themselves responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyright material from other sources. Corresponding authors will receive a complimentary copy of the issue containing their article. If you have any queries, please contact the editor at wachiratienchai.b@gmail.com
