Asia-Pacific Journal of Science and Technology

Asia-Pacific Journal of Science and Technology (APST) formerly known as KKU Research Journal is an open-access peer-reviewed journal published by the Research and Technology Transfer Affairs Division of Khon Kaen University. The journal title has been changed since volume 21, issue 4, October-December 2016 in order to attract more international readers and authors. The journal is devoted to life science and technology research fields, whereas research work obtained from the integration of both fields is most welcome. It is primarily aimed at publicising and promoting research work from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and other Asian countries. It is also expected to contribute to raising the standards of ASEAN post-graduate studies, as in most of the ASEAN countries including Thailand, publication of research work in post-graduate theses/dissertations and in high quality journals is compulsory. The journal employs a double-blinded review process in which authors and reviewers are anonymous to each other throughout the process.

Focus and Scope

Asia-Pacific Journal of Science and Technology accepts manuscripts in English of original research as well as review articles in the fields of life sciences and technology which have never been published elsewhere. The main focus of the journal is to publish work that leads to creative practical applications, greener environment, and human wellbeing. Manuscripts reporting research work integrating life science and technology are especially encouraged. The use of technology to assist, co-operate, enhance and/or incorporate within the field of life science for human wellbeing is of core interest. The integration between subfields such as plant science and energy technology is particularly anticipated to be published in the journal.
