Editorial Policy
    Chiang Mai University (CMU) Journal of Natural Sciences is dedicated to the publication of original research in Sciences & Technology and the Health Sciences. Submissions are welcomed from CMU, 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. The CMU Journal of Natural Sciences is published four times a year, in January, April, July and October.

Objective
    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.

Scope
    Manuscripts submitted to the Journal should be original research in the natural sciences (including, but not limited to, biology, the health sciences, agriculture, chemistry, and physics), including not only the pure sciences, but also the technological or applied disciplines to the extent the research relates to how the technology is created, rather than used.

Manuscripts
    Manuscripts may be submitted to the Managing Editor by post, email, or through the journal’s online submission system at http://cmuj.ac.th. All manuscripts must be in English and contain an abstract with keywords. Manuscripts must follow accepted practice in the natural sciences as detailed in the CSE Manual for Authors, Editors and Publishers (by the Council of Science Editors and formally known as the CBE Manual of Style). Papers must include the following four sections: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, and Discussion. A conclusion is optional. The manuscript should not exceed 30 double-spaced A4 pages (Time New Roman or similar font, size 12”, with 1” margins) with no more than 8 tables, charts, illustrations, and/or images. Manuscripts are printed in monochrome. If accepted for publication, the manuscripts must be made available in MS Word format.

Reprints
    Twenty copies of each published paper will be supplied free of charge to the corresponding author. Orders of a minimum of 100 reprints, invoiced to the author(s), can be forwarded to the Managing Editor.
