1. History

In 1997, the Viet Nam National University Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam established the Science & Technology Development Journal, with its first issue published in 1998. The Science & Technology Development Journal is a multidisciplinary and multi-field publication with 6 sections, including (1) natural sciences, (2) engineering and technology, (3) economics-law and management, (4) social sciences and humanities, (5) earth and environmental sciences, and (6) health sciences.

After 20 years of development, due to the high number of submissions and in order to introduce its works to the international community, in 2017, the Viet Nam National University Ho Chi Minh City decided to restructure the Science and Technology Development Viet Nam Journal into 7 journals, including the Science & Technology Development Journal (ISSN 1859-0128) continuing to publish articles entirely in English, transforming the 6 sections into 6 journals that publish mostly in Vietnamese.

In the website of the Science & Technology Development Journal (ISSN 1859-0128), readers can find more than five thounsands of articles published in Vietnamese and their abstracts in English before 2018. From 2018, all publications by STDJ are in English. By English publication, STDJ truely become a reference sources for scientists, students... in over the world. 

In this journal, readers will find a diverse range of articles that span various disciplines within the scientific and technological domains, including but not limited to, biotechnology, information technology, engineering, environmental science, and nanotechnology. Each article is meticulously selected and peer-reviewed to ensure that only high-quality, original research is featured, contributing to the advancement of knowledge in the field.

As we embark on this journey, we invite researchers, academics, industry professionals, and students to contribute their work and engage with the content presented within these pages. Through collaboration and knowledge exchange, we believe that the Science and Technology Development Journal will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our world, driving innovation, and solving some of the most pressing challenges faced by humanity.

Join us in exploring the limitless possibilities that science and technology hold for the betterment of society and the enrichment of our collective understanding of the universe. Together, we can push the boundaries of what is possible, illuminating the path towards a brighter and more technologically advanced future.


2. Focus and Scope

The Science and Technology Development Journal is dedicated to the publication of high-quality research that advances the frontiers of science and technology. Our focus is on fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation, highlighting research that has the potential to significantly impact societal progress and technological advancements. The journal's scope encompasses a broad array of disciplines within the scientific and technological fields, emphasizing the importance of cross-disciplinary approaches to solving complex challenges.

The journal currently consists of the following five sections:

Engineering and Technology: the Journal is not limited to a specific aspect of  engineering Technology  but is instead devoted to a wide range of subfields in the engineering sciences. While it encourages a broad spectrum of contribution in the engineering sciences, its core interest lies in issues concerning material modeling and response: Mechanical Engineering; Electrical & Electronics Engineering; Petroleum Engineering; Chemical Engineering; Systems Engineering; Process Engineering; Agriculture Engineering; Aerospace Engineering; Applied Engineering; Interdisciplinary.

Natural Sciences: The journal that focuses on every aspects of fundamental and applied sciences research. The journal seeks to publish experimental, computational and theoretical studies of fundamental and applied sciences, engineering, and technology and health sciences. The journal is devoted to related sciences and publishes articles from around the world presenting results of major research from all earth sciences. 

Social Sciences and Humanities: The journal publishes research papers in the fields of humanities and social science such as anthropology, business studies, communication studies, corporate governance, criminology, crosscultural studies, demography, development studies, economics, education, ethics, geography, history, industrial relations, information science, international relations, law, linguistics, library science, media studies, methodology, philosophy, political science, population Studies, psychology, public administration, sociology, social welfare, linguistics, literature, paralegal, performing arts (music, theatre & dance), religious studies, visual arts, women studies and so on.

Economics-Law and Management: The aim of the journal is to render the publication of scientific and technical work for the target group of university teachers and researchers, experts in law, management, economics and make room for an intensive exchange of information and ideas. The journal provides opportunity for presenting the latest expertise, research results and knowledge base to extend the rights of management and economics.

Health Sciences: It includes work from basic science, clinical science, dental, nursing and other related medical fields.
