About the Journal

       The Journal of the Siam Society is published by the Siam Society under Royal Patronage, one of Thailand’s oldest and most active learned organizations. At the Society’s foundation in 1904, it was resolved that “The objects of the Society shall be the investigation and encouragement of Art, Science and Literature in relation to neighbouring countries.” In 1924, the Society adopted the motto “Knowledge gives rise to friendship.”

        The Journal of the Siam Society has been published continuously since 1904. The Journal publishes original articles of a scholarly nature on Thailand and neighbouring countries in a wide range of disciplines including archaeology, epigraphy, history, ethnology, religion, language, literature, art and architecture, and performing arts.

      The Journal has been published once a year, but will be published twice a year starting in 2019, No. 1 January-June and No. 2 July-December. Copies are distributed to members of the Siam Society and partner institutions, and are available for sale from the Society office. Journal are placed online three years after being published.

         All articles submitted are subject to initial assessment by the editorial team before sending out for a double-blind process of peer review. Unsolicited book reviews are not normally accepted.
