The Journal of Mekong Societies (JMS) is an international, double-blinded peer-reviewed academic journal focusing on the Mekong region in Southeast Asia. JMS is published every four months in print and as an online open access journal. The journal is committed to publishing original and quality research articles, review articles and book reviews in humanities and social sciences disciplines covering a variety of topics in Mekong river-basin countries: economics, society, culture, history, ethnicity, language, literature, communications, information, architecture, art, environment, and development. Topics should be related to the Mekong region or its member countries, namely Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. JMS provides a platform for researchers, professionals, and graduate students to contribute innovative work. Articles must be written in English. Submitted manuscripts are evaluated by at least two independent reviewers in the relevant fields.
The journal will not accept articles which have been published or are being considered for publication by another journal, nor should papers being submitted to this journal be submitted to other journals. Manuscripts submitted must conform to the JMS Author Guidelines and Publishing Ethics.
