1)    Editorial Review and Acceptance

 

Korean Journal of Ukrainian Studies welcomes manuscripts that deal with themes concerning Ukraine and neighboring nations with an interdisciplinary approach in the area of arts, culture, folklore, anthropology, literature, linguistics, history, economy, politics, international relations, society, and other relevant topics. KJUS publishes rigorous theoretical or empirical research articles, review articles, research notes, and book reviews.

 

The acceptance criteria for all papers are the quality and originality of the research and its scholarly significance to our readership. Submitted manuscripts should be original pieces of work that have not been published in other places or not currently on offer to another publisher. Except where otherwise stated, manuscripts are peer reviewed by two anonymous reviewers and the editor. Final acceptance or rejection rests with the Editorial Board, who reserves the right to refuse any material for publication.

 

Manuscripts should not exceed 10,000 words including references and endnotes. They should be written in a clear, concise, direct style. Where contributions are judged as acceptable for publication on the basis of content, the Editor and the Publisher reserve the right to modify typescripts to eliminate ambiguity and repetition and improve communication between author and reader. If extensive alterations are required, the manuscript will be returned to the author for revision.

7)    Review Article

 

Authors may review articles or other "texts" in order to show how these materials illuminate a larger conceptual or normative concern. Review articles vary in length, averaging about 8,000 words (10 journal pages). While review articles sometimes originate in proposals submitted to the editorial office, many result from invitations that our managing editor extends to specific authors.

 

8)    Book Review

 

Book Review publishes single, double, and triple book reviews (typically 1,000, 1,500, and 2,000 words respectively). It also publishes symposia, critical exchanges, and review essays. The Review section neither accepts unsolicited reviews, nor does it accept requests to review particular books. All pieces published in the Book Review section are commissioned and edited by the editor.
