About Journal

        ASR was first launched in 2014 by Chiang Mai University. However, it has a longer history, with its genesis in 2002 as part of Chiang Mai University Journal (a multidisciplinary journal covering the health sciences, science and technology, and social sciences and humanities). This journal was split into two in 2007, with the formation of ASR's predecessor, the Chiang Mai University Journal of social Sciences and Humanities, which was later restyled as ASR in 2014, and began publishing online in 2015.
        As of 2015, ASR has been indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), Clarivate Analytics.
Editorial Policy

        ASR Chiang Mai University Journal of Social Sciences and Humanities is dedicated to the publication of original research in the social sciences and humanities. Submissions are welcomed from both Chiang Mai University as well as other Thai and foreign institutions. All submissions must be original research not previously published or simultaneously submitted for publication. Manuscripts are peer reviewed before acceptance. ASR is published biannually, in June and December.

        The objectives are to work with researchers to produce clear and concise scientific manuscripts, publish original and leading-edge scientific research, and disseminate these research results to the global community.


        ASR publishes new and multidisciplinary research papers in all fields of the social sciences and humanities, with a particular interest in research related to:

  • The complexity and diversity of societies and cultures
