Paper Submission
Submission of an abstract or article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the authorities responsible where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, the abstract or article will not be published elsewhere in the same form without the written consent of the publisher. The editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication.
Copyrights for articles are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the publisher. The publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author's responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.
The publisher has a zero-tolerance plagiarism policy. All submissions will be checked by editors before being sent to reviewers.
Authors permit the publisher to archive them in databases and indexes such as Social Science Research Network and Google Scholar.
Manuscripts should be prepared in Microsoft Word format and submitted via the conference’s email address (issbrc.psaku@gmail.com). If you have any questions, please contact the editor.
Paper Selection and Publication Process
1. Upon receipt of a submission, the editor sends an e-mail of confirmation to the submission’s author within one to three working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, your submission e-mail may have been missed.
2. Peer review. We use a double-blind system for peer review; both reviewers’ and authors’ identities remain anonymous. The paper will be reviewed by at least two experts: one editorial board member and at least one external reviewer. The review process may take two to three weeks.
3. Notification of the result of review by e-mail.
4. If the submission is accepted, the authors revise paper.
5. After publication, the corresponding author will receive one set of the Conference Abstract Book free of charge. If you want to keep printed proceedings, please contact the editor before making an order.
6. A PDF version of the proceedings will be send via email.
General Requirements
1. Language: Submission in both Thai (National Conference) and English (International Conference) are welcomed.
2. Length: Each paper is limited to 8 pages normally (including all figures, tables, and references), additional pages will be charged.
Title Page
To ensure the integrity of the peer review process, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other.
When you sent a submission file, author identities should be removed from it. You should upload the title page as a supplementary file for the editor to review.
1. Title: Be concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible. If you choose to have a subtitle, it should be italicized and centered directly below the main title.
2. Authors’ Names and Affiliations: The preferred form of an author's name is first name, middle initial(s), and last name; this form reduces the likelihood of mistaken identity. To assist researchers as well as librarians, use the same form for publication throughout your career; that is, do not use initials on one manuscript and your full name on a later one. Omit all titles (e.g., Dr., Professor) and degrees (e.g., Ph.D., Psy.D., Ed.D.).
The authors’ affiliation identifies the position and location of the author(s) at the time the research was conducted, which is usually an institution. Include a dual affiliation only if two institutions contributed substantial support to the study. Include no more than two affiliations per author.
Preparation of Text
Manuscripts should be organized in the following order: Title; abstract; key word (indexing terms, normally three-to-five items); introduction; methods, and/or techniques; results; discussion; conclusion; acknowledgements; references.
1. General Rules for Text: Please use the following rules for the entire text, including abstract, key word, headings and references.
Font: Time New Roman; 12 pt. [Eng.]
Paragraph Spacing: Above paragraph - 0 pt.; below paragraph - 0 pt.
Line Spacing: Single.
Heading: Time New Roman; 14 pt.; Bold [Eng.]
2. Abstract: A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length of 200 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References should therefore be avoided, but, if essential, they must be cited in full in the abstract, without relying on the reference list.
3. Key Word: Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 5 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (e.g., “and,” “of”). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible.
4. Subdivision of the Article: Divide your article into clearly defined. Any subsection, ideally, should not be more than 600 words. Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible but not at the expense of clarity.
5. Equations: The text size of equations should be similar to normal text size.
6. Tables: Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place a table’s caption above the table’s body and its description below the body. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.
7. Figures and Schemes: Number figures consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place a figure’s caption and description below the figure body. A minimum resolution of 300 DPI is required.
Note: Avoid abbreviating the titles of tables, figures, and equations (i.e., Tab. 1, Fig. 2, Eq. 3) in the caption or in running text. Do not write “the table above/below” or “the figure on page 32,” because the position and page number of a table or figure cannot be determined until the pages are typeset.
Cite the work of those individuals whose ideas, theories, or research have directly influenced your work. They may provide key background information, support or dispute your thesis, or offer critical definitions and data. Citation of an article implies that you have personally read the cited work. In addition to crediting the ideas of others that you used to build your thesis, provide documentation for all facts and figures that are not considered common knowledge.
Citations in the Text: Each reference cited in the text must appear in the reference list, and each entry in the reference list must be cited in the text. However, two kinds of material are cited only in the text: references to classical works such as the Bible and the Qur’an, whose sections are standardized across editions, and references to personal communication. References in a meta-analysis are not cited in-text unless they are also mentioned in the text.
When formatting an in-text citation, give, in parentheses, the last name of the author of the cited work and the year it was published. For unpublished or informally published works, give the year the work was produced. Write “in press” in parentheses for articles that have been accepted for publication but that have not yet been published. Do not give a date until the article has actually been published.
In all other instances, citations in the text should follow the referencing style used by the American Psychological Association (APA).
All papers submitted in the conference will undergo rigid double-blind peer review process. Only excellent papers that will pass the review process will be accepted and published in the conference proceedings (with ISBN) as one volume.
