Objectives of the Journal

The Journal of the Philosophy and Religion Society of Thailand aims to promote and develop exchanges of research findings in philosophy and religious studies, as well as in related academic fields. Papers in all areas of philosophy and religious studies are accepted, and we accept papers from all philosophical schools. Papers must not have been published elsewhere, and must not be submitted simultaneously in other journals.  

Publication Schedule

Two issues per year, in July and December of every year


There are no fees for publishing in the journal. Unfortunately, since the Society is independent and receives no budget, we are in no position to provide any form of honorarium to our reviewers. However, we will gratefully acknowledge the generous help of our reviewers after each issue is published.

Publication Ethics

The Journal of the Philosophy and Religious Society of Thailand is fully committed to upholding the highest standards concerning ethical publication practices from authors, editors, and reviewers and follows guidance produced by bodies that include the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

For Authors

Authors must ensure and declare that

  1. Their article is original (no plagiarism and self-plagiarism), not published (or under consideration) in other journals (no dual publication), contains constructive criticism, if necessary, but without false, unsubstantiated, emotive and offensive statements (no defamation), genuinely written by all authors who significantly contributed to the research (no ghost authors) and is accompanied by a financial/personal ‘conflicts of interest’ declaration.
  2. Their research is genuine and not based on fabricated data, has obtained all relevant authorizations, and has followed appropriate ethical procedures (including but not limited to data protection, rights to privacy, child protection, and medical testing, where they are relevant.
  3. If English is not their first language, it is highly recommended that the author(s) have their paper edited for language prior to submitting their manuscript. This is an important step that will help to ensure that the academic content of the paper is fully understood by the editors and reviewers. However, there is no guaranteed acceptance for publication after language editing and authors are liable for all costs associated with language editing services.

Editorial Team

The editorial team will act professionally fairly and objectively by assessing each submitted article's contribution to new knowledge, quality of articulation, and strength of evidence provided. The team will:

  1. Subject the article to ‘Correction notices’ according to COPE guidelines, if the above principles for authors are not adhered to.
  2. Notify a party/author subject to accusation and ask them to explain their position, within a good time frame, before taking a decision that will be shared with relevant copyright owners, reviewers, and authors.
  3. Decisions may include withdrawing acceptance should a case of ethical misconduct, including fabricated data, be discovered prior to publication. If misconduct is discovered after the publication J Health Res will publish a retraction notice, and if legally required, will withdraw the publication from the online version and publish an apology in the subsequent issue.
  4. Report evidence of ethical misconduct to the researchers’ Institution(s) for their consideration.
  5. The address was written grievances by authors whose articles are rejected for publication, or who have concerns about the way their paper has been processed. The grievances will be resolved within 30 days. The decision will be in writing and final.
  6. Keep confidential and not use for personal gains information obtained during the publication process. Information disclosed in a manuscript under review could, however, be quoted if express written consent is obtained from the author.
  7. Declare all conflicts of interest and recuse to be involved in processing papers when they have a personal stake in the publication.


J PARST reviewers will act professionally, fairly, and objectively as specified by the editorial team and in the context of the reviewer's expertise in the subject. They will adhere to the basic principles and standards of peer review and will:

  1. Be subject to a "double-blind" peer review process (neither the authors nor the reviewers know each other's identity)
  2. Keep confidential and not use for personal gains information obtained through peer review. Information could, however, be quoted if express written consent is obtained from the author and when consent is requested through the JHR editor.
  3. Suggest that authors read and cite papers that may clarify or improve their article, but will not force the authors to include a citation (no coercive citation) in their article without academic justification and as a condition of acceptance.
  4. Draw the editor's attention to substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript and other published papers of which they have knowledge.
  5. Declare all conflicts of interest and recuse to be involved in processing papers when they have a personal stake in the publication.


Papers should be between 6,000 and 8,000 words. Exceptions to this will be considered individually by the editor. We request that all references to the author be deleted from the submitted manuscript to ensure a double-blind review process.

Articles must be submitted in either MS Word (.doc, .docx) or Open Document (.odt) formats. The reference style is APA.

Submission must be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 250 words. Submission must also be accompanied by a cover letter giving the details of the author, including full name, affiliation, and email address. For inquiries, prospective authors are encouraged to contact the Chief Editor.
