About the Journal

The Journal of the Siam Society (JSS) 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.”

JSS 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 archeology, epigraphy, history, ethnology, religion, language, literature, art and architecture, and performing arts.

JSS is currently published twice a year; Part 1: January-June and Part 2: July-December. Hard copies are distributed to members of the Siam Society and partner libraries and institutions, and are available for sale from the Society office. JSS is placed online in open access immediately after being published.

All research 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.

JSS is listed on the SCOPUS database of academic journals, which enables contributors to gain credits for themselves and their university’s ranking.

- Non-member Individuals; US$32.

- Institutions; US$80.
