The Cambodian Journal of Natural History (ISSN 2226–969X), Cambodia’s first peer-reviewed scientific journal, was launched in 2008 by Fauna & Flora International and the Royal University of Phnom Penh as part of the University Capacity Building Project.
Aimed at helping Cambodian scientists to share their findings and improve their writing skills, the journal is open access and addresses the critical need for information on the conservation status and management requirements of Cambodian biodiversity.
All papers are peer-reviewed by leading national and international scientists and published in English.
Many of the journal’s authors are Cambodians with little experience of writing scientific papers, and our editors gently coach novice authors to develop their analysis and presentation.
Young scientists are thus gaining valuable new skills and confidence to write up their work, while distinguished veterans can use the journal to ensure their findings reach a wide audience in Cambodia.
The journal is published biannually in June and December each year by the Centre for Biodiversity Conservation (CBC) at the Royal University of Phnom Penh. The CBC is a non-profit making unit dedicated to training Cambodian biologists and the study and conservation of Cambodia’s biodiversity.
