Newspapers

Newspapers may be extremely helpful when researching Thai legal topics. Westlaw and LexisNexis both have good coverage of U.S., international, and foreign newspapers.  See also the subscription Access World News and Factiva databases for full-text access to newspapers. Note that there is an Asian edition of the Wall Street Journal (Wall Street Journal Asia), which is published in Hong Kong Monday through Friday. The text of the aforementioned is available in LexisNexis.   

A number of English-language newspapers are published in Cambodia and are available in electronic format: The Cambodia Daily, which dates back to1993, is one of Cambodia's several English-language newspapers. Other English-language media include the Phnom Penh Post and the Cambodian Times
