The Chiang Mai Journal of Science adheres strictly to the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Papers which have already been published in other journals or which are under consideration by other journals should not be submitted. Similarly, papers already published in the Journal should not be submitted to other journals. Manuscripts that are suspected to involve plagiarism or other types of ethical misconduct will be rejected.
Following submission, a manuscript passes through an initial screening process by the Editor in order to determine its overall suitability. If considered suitable, it is then sent by the handling Associate Editor to a minimum of two external reviewers (double-blind system) for detailed evaluation. Normally, this review process from time of submission to a final decision takes not more than 3 months and then not more than another 4 months to publication.
