About the Journal
The International Journal of Studies in Thai Business, Society and Culture is an academic forum to disseminate and discuss new issues in regards to Thailand. Thailand has gone through different stages of social, political and cultural development. Such development has affected Thailand and Thai people in many ways. This journal is the first international journal devoted entirely to fostering an understanding of issues in emerging social, political and cultural issues in contemporary Thailand. This journal aims to provide both conceptual and functional implications useful for the further development of research, teaching practices, and managerial techniques.
The main objective of this journal is to promote research and application of new developments in studies in various contexts of Thailand. The editorial board members of this journal aim to  use this journal as a forum to help professionals working in the field of Thai studies, Asian studies, international business, cultural studies, political sciences and international development to contribute, to disseminate and to learn from each other’s work.

This journal aims to act as a forum for exchanging new ideas and sharing practical experiences in various aspects in modern Thai society. The journal will also:

  1. raise the awareness about Thai’s current business, economic, social and political climate;

  2. provide insights regarding Thailand’s future growth opportunities; and

  3. offer a networking forum for academics, professionals and entrepreneurs in Thai and international studies.

More importantly, this journal also solicits literature that allows for a broader interpretation of research – it welcomes not only papers which adhere to the most common research standards (i.e., largely based on hypothesis testing using quantitative methods), but also those that introduce a more Thai perspective through qualitative and interdisciplinary contributions.
