The Journal of Korean Studies has moved to online manuscript submission and peer review via Editorial Manager. Please submit your manuscript electronically at http://www.editorialmanager.com/jks/Default.aspx.
JKS editors and editorial board welcome submissions year-round for publication. JKS is published bi-annually in the spring and fall.
Thematic issues are confirmed two years in advance. Those who have a publication track record and interest in guest editing a thematic issue may send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and a sample call for papers or a list of potential conference papers to the address below.
Authors may submit articles in English or Korean. Korean-language submissions sent out for review undergo a two-stage process. First, Korean-language manuscripts are sent out for blind review. Second, if the reviewers determine that the manuscript merits “further consideration with possibility of publication,” the author will be asked to provide an English translation of the article. Once the translation is received, the article will be sent back to reviewers for assessment. We hope that the policy of accepting Korean-language manuscripts for consideration encourages scholars conducting work in Korean to submit quality articles and receive initial input from JKS reviewers without the need for translation.
- The entire manuscript should be typed in 12-point Times New Roman or appropriate Korean font and double-spaced, including endnotes and bibliography.

JKS uses double-blind review; please make sure the author’s name is removed from the manuscript.
