Author Guidelines

The Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand (J Med Assoc Thai)

The Journal of Medical Association of Thailand strongly recommends to the authors of the manuscript to observe and follow the code on good publication practice produced by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the uniform requirements for manuscript and potential conflicts of interest reporting produced by ICMJE and the EQUATOR network resource centre for good research reporting.

Manuscript Preparation: The original typescript, on data file must be submitted, including copies of all illustrations, legends, and references. All must be typed single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end on 8½” x 11” (A4) white bond paper. Margins must be at least 1 inch. Only a word processor should be used. Metric measurements are to be used throughout the text and illustrative materials. Generic names for drugs are to be used. Brand names may be included in parentheses.

Title: The title must be short, specific, and clear. The title page should be typed on a separate sheet and include the full name, highest degree, and academic affiliations/institution of all authors, and the addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, and fax numbers of the first and corresponding authors.

Abstracts: Abstracts, both in English and Thai, which must include a concise statement in not more than 300 words (in English) of what was aimed, what was done, what was found, and what was concluded. For Original Articles, with four labeled paragraphs of Objective, Materials and Methods, Results, and Conclusion. If there is no Thai author in the article, Thai abstract is not required.

Illustrations and Tables: Use only illustrations that clarify and augment the text. Resubmit the illustrations. High resolution (300-600 dpi) are requested in PDF, TIFF, JPEG (use only the maximum quality compression setting), or Microsoft PowerPoint (.pptx) format. All lettering must be legible after reduction to column size. Each table should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet, and should supplement rather than duplicate the text. They should be numbered consecutively as mentioned in the text and each must have a heading. There is a limit of five figures and five tables per article. Color illustrations will be published at the author’s expense. Supplementary tables or Appendixes will not be published in the article.

References: References should be listed in consecutive order as they are cited in the text, not alphabetically. Once a reference is cited, all subsequent citations should be running in queue to the original number. All references must be cited in the text or tables. Unpublished data and personal communication are not accepted. Use the form of references and the titles of journals abbreviated, according to the style used in Index Medicus (the Vancouver system). If there are more than six authors, the first six authors are listed followed by “et al.”. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.

Manuscript Acceptance: Manuscripts are received with the understanding that they are not under simultaneous consideration by another publication. Accepted manuscripts become the property of the Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand and must not be published in other journal.
