Thai Forest Bulletin (Botany)
Thai Forest Bulletin (Botany) here referred to as TFB (Botany) was first published in 1954 by the Royal Forest Department, and in 2002, publication of the journal was undertaken by the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation. TFB (Botany) is a scientific journal publishing research papers in the various branches of plant taxonomy and systematics, with the authors often botanists involved in the Flora of Thailand; other relevant disciplines, such as ecology, plant geography, anatomy and ethnobotany are also accepted. The aim of TFB (Botany) is to advance our knowledge and understanding of both the theory and practice of plant science research in Thailand.
Thai Forest Bulletin (Botany) continues to evolve and will become both a printed and electronic journal starting with volume 43 number 1, 2015. For more information, including new author guidelines and back issues, see the website www.dnp.go.th/botany/ThaiForestBulletin/Thai Forest Bulletin.html.
We will have a new system for manuscript submission using Thai Journal Online (ThaiJO) available at the following site www.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/ThaiForestBulletin/index. The new submission system will start from January 2016, and papers will go online after final proof and formatting for a TFB (Botany) part as soon as they are ready, thus speeding up publication and open access via websites such as www.dnp.go.th/botany/ThaiForestBulletin/Thai Forest Bulletin.html and www.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/ThaiForestBulletin. Full articles may be accessed from the Scopus website <www.scopus.com/> and the ACI website <www.asean-cites.org>.
Each article will be identified by an article number and a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) conforming to the requirements of the International Code of Nomenclature for Algae, Fungi, and Plants (McNeill et al. 2012) for the valid and effective publication of names. In addition, papers published online will be distributed simultaneously in printed form to several libraries, and bound hard copy volumes will appear once a year in December.
