All citations in the references must be prepared in English, with the Romanic transformation of Thai citations plus translation in English.

  1. The academic terminology must be presented as following:
    • An English term used commonly in Thai has to be written in accordance with what stated in the latest version of Royal Institute Dictionary with no English word provided in a parenthesis, e.g. อินเทอร์เน็ต, ออนไลน์
    • An English term not commonly used in Thai must be presented in Thai word followed by the parenthesized English word and/or an abbreviation (if any). Examples include เครื่องรับรู้ชีวภาพ (biosensor) ทฤษฎีพฤติกรรมตามแผน (Theory of Planned Behavior: TPB) การเรียนรู้โดยใช้สมองเป็นฐาน (Brain Based Learning: BBL)
    • The parenthesized English word should be provided only one time, written in small letter cases except for the abbreviation or technical terms.
    • An abbreviation must come with its full terminology first. For example, the term “The Theory of Planned Behavior or TPB” must come first so that only “TPB” would be used instead throughout the manuscript.
