PSU Journals

Category:

     Since 1979, PSU has supported research publication by creating PSU journals. In the beginning, besides academic articles, the journals also included news and academic news as well. In 1981, Professor Vijarn Panit, M.D., served as a chief editor who reformed the format of the journals into a complete academic journal, which published only academic articles. The journals also emphasized quality of the articles to be published and accepted both articles from all around Thailand and other countries. The journals were published quarterly (4 publications/year). However, since the journals accepted articles from all disciplines, the publication offers too much diversity in content. Therefore, in 1992, the university divided the journals into 3 disciplines – science and technology, medicine and social science and humanities.
