  3. Introduction

The Seoul Journal of Korean Studies (SJKS; ISSN 1225-0201) is published twice a year (June and December) by the Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies at Seoul National University. Launched in 1989, it has continuously striven to present important new research on Korea in English, by scholars from Korea and other countries. From 2008 to 2012 it was listed on the SSCI (Social Sciences Citation Index) and A&HCI (Arts and Humanities Citation Index), and currently it is listed on SCOPUS and KCI and is available through Project MUSE and DBPia.

 

The journal provides a platform for the best scholarship on Korea’s past and present, by both young and established, Korean and overseas researchers. Traditionally it has served as a venue to introduce important research from Korea to an English-speaking audience, but since 2006 it has broadened its scope, and now is unique in the international spread and diversity of its contributors. SJKS publishes articles on all aspects of modern and pre-modern Korean Studies, from the humanities and from social sciences. However, the journal emphasizes in particular research that has an interdisciplinary character, that applies new methodologies, or that otherwise seeks to enhance our understanding of Korea through an innovative use of established sources or through unearthing new ones. Striving to improve the level of scholarship on Korea, keen attention is paid to the writing, which should use clear language and adhere to established norms of style and Romanization, and argumentation, which should be based on solid evidence, clear logic, and sound methodology. All submissions undergo a rigorous, double-blind peer review process overseen by an international editorial board.
