Good news from TCI (30/6/2021): Applied Economics Journal (AEJ) is now being listed in Thai Journal Citation Index (TCI) tier 1. Moving up from tier 2 to tier 1 creates more opportunities for Thai researchers to publish articles with us. Our editorial team would like to thanks the TCI and ThaiJo staff, reviewers, and all readers. We promises to continue improving quality of our journal and ensure timely and efficient publication process. New submission is always welcome.
