JKR invites contributions from senior and junior scholars researching on any aspects of Korean religions from a wide range of perspectives, including religious studies, philosophy, theology, literature, folklore, art, anthropology, history, sociology, political science, and cultural studies. Articles submitted for consideration should not have appeared or be under review for publication elsewhere. JKR also welcomes book reviews and review articles. All submissions and enquires should be sent to the Managing Editor: journalkr@sogang.ac.kr
  1. Format: Manuscripts should be written in English and submitted as email attachments in Microsoft Word format (.doc files). The text must be double-spaced with ample margins, its font being Times New Roman and its size 12.
  2. Length: Article manuscripts should be under 10,000 words in length including endnotes. Bibliographies and appendices (as appropriate) are additional. Book reviews should not exceed 1,000 words and review articles 3,000 words. Please contact the Managing Editor before submitting articles or reviews that exceed these limits.
  3. Contents: Article manuscripts should include the following: a cover sheet; an abstract (200 words) followed by a list of five key words; main text; bibliography; acknowledgements; biographical note (100 words); appendices (as appropriate); tables with captions (on individual pages); figure captions (as a list). The cover sheet consists of the title of the article, the author셲 name, affiliation, status, and contact details (current e-mail, postal address, and telephone number). The first page of the article proper should have the title but not author셲 name and affiliations. Authors should notify the Managing Editor as soon as possible should any of the information change.
  4. Style: Submissions must use the author-date system for citations and endnotes for additional information, and provide a list of references in the format recommended in the most recent edition of the Chicago Manual of Style (Chicago: University of Chicago Press). For details, see http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html
  5. Pagination: Formatting should be kept to a strict minimum; the manuscript should be numbered using A4 pagination; titles and subtitles should be the same font/size as running text.
  6. Tables/Figures: Authors are encouraged to submit tables, figures, maps, and other illustrations along with their manuscripts; these should, however, be sent on separate pages; please do not insert them into the text.

  8. Han셠ŭl/Chinese Characters: The use of han셠ŭl and Chinese characters within the text is allowed and encouraged.
  9. Editing: All submitted articles must arrive in publishable English. JKR will not be responsible for translation or major editing. Once accepted, articles will undergo standard copy editing by the Journal셲 editing staff. Corrections will be submitted to the authors for final approval.
  10. Evaluation Procedures: Submissions that pass the first round of editorial review will proceed through a two person double-blind peer review. Submissions are graded into four categories: 1) publishable, 2) publishable with minor revision, 3) re-submittable after major revision, and 4) rejected.
