Acta Koreana accepts submissions of papers on Korean studies topics throughout the year. For further queries, please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
The editors of Acta Koreana invite the submission of manuscripts pertinent to the goals of the journal and Academia Koreana. These goals include promoting new research on Korea in all academic disciplines within the humanities, as well as significantly increasing the availability to the international community of scholarly articles, translations, interviews and reviews in this expanding field.
Manuscripts should be written in English; both British and American English are acceptable.
Manuscripts should be submitted as an electronic file attachment in Microsoft Word format only. Microsoft Word documents that have been converted from other programs are not acceptable because of the formatting difficulties that they cause.
Article manuscripts should ideally be 6,000-10,000 words in length and be double-spaced throughout, including footnotes, indented quotations, and references. The font should be Times New Roman, 12 point. Book reviews should be 1,000-2,500 words in length.
Manuscripts should use footnotes rather than endnotes.
Formatting should be kept to a strict minimum: the document should use A4 pagination, and titles and subtitles should be the same size and font as running text.
Authors are encouraged to submit tables, figures, maps, and other illustrations along with their manuscripts; these should, however, be sent as separate files; please do not include them in the article. It is the authors’ responsibility to obtain the necessary permission for illustrations in their articles.
The manuscript should have a separate title page with the title of the article, the author’s name, affiliation, status and full contact details (e-mail, address, and telephone). As the author's affiliation, status and e-mail will be included in the article, authors should notify the editors as soon as possible should any of these change. The first page of the manuscript proper should bear the title, but not the author’s name, followed by a brief abstract of no more than 250 words and 5 key words.
Besides articles and reviews, we also welcome the submission of translations.
For romanization of words from East Asian languages, authors should use McCune-Reischauer for Korean (Yale in the case of articles on linguistics), Hepburn for Japanese and Pinyin for Chinese.
Authors can either use the social science system of citation (author-date in the text, with a separate table of references at the back) or the humanities system (full reference at first citation, abbreviated thereafter). All articles should include a references section.
Please refer to the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style (Chicago and London: Univ. of Chicago Press), for more detailed guidelines on citation rules and style preferences.
All manuscripts submitted to Acta Koreana should neither have been published already nor be under review for publication elsewhere.
The submission of a paper will be taken to imply that the author will automatically agree that upon its acceptance for publication its copyright will belong to Academia Koreana, Keimyung University.
