The Editor-in-Chief of RJSH, Professor Anek Laothamatas, Ph.D., wrote in the Editor’s Note of RJSH, Volume 1 Number 1, as follow: “RJSH welcomes all academics and practitioners in the social sciences and humanities throughout the world to extend the frontiers of knowledge and disseminate their research findings in our publication.
