Preparation of manuscripts
1) Page setup of a manuscript: It is important that the file will be saved as a single file as MS word document. The text should be in single-column format.

3.2. Author name(s) and affiliations: Present given name and surname clearly with size of 14 point at the middle of the page.

Contact information for the corresponding author, including full name, complete mailing address, telephone, fax, and e-mail address. Contact details must be kept up to date by the corresponding author with size of 14 point.
3.3. Abstract: The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. References should be avoided. An abstract is often presented separately from the article; therefore, it must be able to stand alone. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. The abstract is not exceeding 250 words for Thai and 200 words for English language in length. Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 5-6 keywords, using American spelling for English version as well as Thai version and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
3.4 Manuscript content: The length of manuscript should not exceed 15 pages for research article including figures, Tables and references whereas no more than 10 pages is allowed for a review article. The manuscript should be assembled in the following sequence:
Introduction: Review pertinent work, cite key references and explain importance of the research. State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background.
Material and methods: Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. Trade names should be avoided in defining products whenever possible. If naming a product trade name cannot be avoided, the trade names of other like products also should be mentioned, and first use should be accompanied by the superscript symbol, e.g. ™ or ®, followed in parentheses by the owner's name. If a product trade name is used, it is imperative that the product can be described in sufficient detail so that professionally trained readers will understand the nature of the product. Do not use trade names in titles. The mention of critical, especially novel, supplies and pieces of equipment ought to be followed, in parenthesis, by name of manufacturer or provider, and on the first mention only, city, state/province, and country (such as Sigma-Aldrich Corp., St. Louis, Mo., U.S.A.).
Results and discussion: A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Present and discuss results concisely using figures and tables as needed, comparing with previous work. Do not present the same information in figures and tables. Results should be clear and concise, while discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work and clearly indicate what new information is contributed by the present study. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
Conclusion: Conclusions of the study may be presented in a brief conclusions section (not a summary) without references.
Reference: List only those references cited in the text. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). All publications cited in the text must be presented in number only, enclosed in brackets (Vancouver system). At the end of the manuscript, list the references in the order they appear in the text. Please do not abbreviate journal titles. The manuscript should be carefully checked to ensure that the spelling of authors' names and dates are exactly the same in the text as in the reference list.
