About the Journal

The Dalat University Journal of Science (the DLU-JOS) – formerly known as the Dalat University Scientific Bulletin (established and published the first volume in 1984) – is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed open-access academic journal published by Dalat University. The DLU-JOS has been indexed in the ASEAN Citation Index (ACI) since 2017 and is one of the first six Vietnamese scholarly journals to achieve that distinction. Moreover, the DLU-JOS is the first multidisciplinary scholarly journal in Vietnam published by a national institution to be approved as a full member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) since 2018. It has been indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) since 2018, awarded the DOAJ Seal in 2020, and accepted as an official partner of the Web of Science Reviewer Recognition service (formerly known as Publons) since 2021.

The DLU-JOS is multidisciplinary in scope, dealing with several topics of Social Sciences and Humanities; Natural Sciences and Technology; Economics and Management. Although the DLU-JOS mainly focuses on the above-mentioned topics in the Vietnamese context, we also welcome submissions that address those topics in the context of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) community. In order to support local educators and promote research collaboration within the ASEAN, we encourage submissions that are either distinctly Vietnam or ASEAN-related or regional or international in scope, but relevant to Vietnam or the ASEAN.

The discipline-specific sections within the DLU-JOS are collections of articles that focus on DLU-JOS’s topics of interest and are grouped together on the DLU-JOS’s Digital Publishing Management System. These sections are a permanent feature of the DLU-JOS and will be open for submissions continuously. The DLU-JOS includes three following discipline-specific sections, namely Social Sciences and Humanities; Natural Sciences and Technology; Economics and Management.
