Manuscript Submission Process

The process of submitting manuscripts for publication in NAJUA: History of Architecture and Thai Architecture - NAJUA (HATA) involves the following five steps:

1. The author submits the manuscript file, along with attached images of figures and tables, and fills out the necessary information using the ThaiJO system.

2. The editorial board reviews the scope of content and whether it corresponds to the aim and scope of the journal. It is important that the manuscript includes complete content and sections, and is presented with clarity and conciseness, adhering to the guidelines provided to authors. Manuscripts that are missing sections will not be considered, and authors will be notified through the ThaiJO system.

3. The editorial board nominates experts to evaluate the manuscript. The editor appoints three experts affiliated with different institutions, none of which shall be affiliated with the same institution as the author. The editorial board conducts a double-blinded review process. If the manuscript passes an evaluation by at least two-thirds of the experts, it will be considered by the editorial board. However, if the manuscript does not pass the review process, it will be rejected.

Remarks: The review process can result in three possible outcomes: 1) The manuscript is accepted without requiring any edits, 2) The manuscript is accepted with requested amendments, and 3) The manuscript is not accepted. The review outcomes will be communicated to the author of the manuscript.

4.  For manuscripts being considered for publication, authors may be required to revise the manuscript based on the recommendations provided by the experts. The revised manuscript, along with high-resolution images of figures and tables (300-600 dpi each), should be submitted. It is important to clearly indicate the revised parts. If the author has a different viewpoint on minor comments from the experts and chooses not to make the suggested corrections, they are required to provide reasonable explanations. Similarly, if the author disagrees with major comments from the experts and does not wish to make the recommended changes, they must provide reasonable explanations. In such cases, the editorial board may consider submitting the manuscript for re-review by 1-2 experts.

Please note that the journal reserves the right to reject publication if the author does not appropriately address the recommended amendments to the manuscript.

5. The editorial board reviews the manuscript and addresses any typographical errors in both Thai and English. Inquiries or suggestions from the editorial board will be communicated to the author for confirmation. However, please note that the editorial board retains the right to make amendments to the manuscript in relation to the journal’s layout, writing style, and reference format without prior notification to the author.
