Siksacakr Articles

Siksacakr (the Wheel of Knowledge) is the Center for Khmer Studies’ peer-reviewed, trilingual journal focusing on new trends in Khmer Studies. Articles are written in Khmer, English or French. All contributions are translated into Khmer.

Aimed primarily at providing Cambodian scholars with a link to international scholarship on Khmer and Southeast Asian studies, Siksacakr is a valuable resource for informing scholars about new directions and new research in Khmer Studies. Siksacakr also provides senior and emerging scholars, both international and Cambodian, with a respected venue for publication.
