Korean Linguistics

Publishing status: Discontinued
Korean Linguistics, the journal of the International Circle of Korean Linguistics, publishes peer-reviewed, scholarly articles at the cutting edge of Korean linguistics, a field of growing importance in virtually all branches of linguistics (syntax, semantics, phonology, phonetics, sociolinguistics, discourse-pragmatics, historical linguistics). The scope of the journal extends to work on Korean linguistics in all of the subareas of linguistics. Emphasis will be given to articles on Korean of import to general and theoretical linguistics, but significant work on, for example, the history of Korean and the Korean writing system will also be considered for publication. Book reviews, remarks on special occasions, obituaries, etc. may be included.

Submission

Manuscript Submission Instructions

Please read this first!

Korean Linguistics is, at present, discontinued. The publisher is looking into the possibility of re-starting the journal in the future, under the editorship of Lucien Brown (Monash University) and Jae Hoon Yeon (SOAS). If you are considering submitting a paper to this journal, please contact them first, at lucien.brown at monash.edu .

Korean Linguistics welcomes scholarly articles at the cutting edge of Korean linguistics, a field of growing importance in virtually all branches of linguistics (syntax, semantics, phonology, phonetics, sociolinguistics, discourse-pragmatics, historical linguistics). The scope of the journal extends to work on Korean linguistics in all of these subareas of linguistics. Emphasis will be given to articles on Korean of import to general and theoretical linguistics, but significant work on, for example, the history of Korean and the Korean writing system will also be considered for publication.

Contributions should be in English; contributors whose native language is not English should have their manuscript carefully checked by a native speaker.

Any material submitted to Korean Linguistics must be original work, not published or under review elsewhere, and contributors may not submit this work elsewhere while it is under review here. If related material is published, under consideration or in press elsewhere, that must be disclosed to us. Similarly, if part of a contribution has appeared or will appear elsewhere, contributors must specify the details in a cover letter accompanying the submission. Upon acceptance of a contribution for publication, its author(s) will be asked to sign a Copyright Assignment Form, transferring the copyright to the publisher.

Articles

Articles should be shorter than 12.000 words including references; longer manuscripts may not be considered.

Authors submitting articles for consideration should send one electronic copy in portable document format (.pdf) to both editors. It is not necessary that initial submissions adhere fully to the Guidelines. At this point in the process, clear and consistent presentation are paramount. All pages should be numbered consecutively. Figures, charts and tables can be left in the appropriate place in the manuscript rather than moved to the end.

In order to permit double-blind refereeing, submissions should not carry author information. In particular, please note the following:

  1. Your name, affiliation, and other personal data should be submitted separately.
  2. Avoid the use of your name in the text of the manuscript.
  3. Minimize references to your own work. If necessary, use third person formulations as much as possible; if you are Jones or have worked in Jones’ department, do not write “Building on previous work (Jones 2007), we will now show that ...”, but simply “We build on prior work by Jones (2007)”.
  4. Avoid references to unpublished work, especially work of which you are a (co-) author. If unavoidable, replace the reference in the text by “Author (in press)”, and describe it in the list of references as “Author (in press). Details omitted for blind reviewing”. (But please remember to fill these out again in the final text for production if your article is accepted for publication!)
  5. Remember to remove any identifying information from the document properties.
  6. Please be advised that the editors may return your manuscript to you for anonymization before sending it to reviewers in case it does not, in their opinion, conform to the standards for double-blind reviewing.

Book reviews

Book reviews are by invitation only. However, notification of the publication of a new book and request for its review are always welcome and should be submitted to the Editor.

Authors of book reviews are asked to observe the following, in addition to the general Guidelines for Korean Linguistics:

  1. Please observe the deadline set by the Editor.
  2. A book review should be shorter than 8.000 words including references.
  3. Order for the headings: title, author or editor, place of publication: publisher, date. Roman pages, Arabic pages. $xx.xx (cloth), $xx.xx (paper).
  4. Use full names of individuals, not just surnames with initials.
  5. Please use the Yale system of Romanization except when quoting verbatim from the book under review.
  6. The reviewer's name and professional affiliation should appear at the end of the review.
  7. Please include (at the very end of your review) an address, e-mail address, and telephone numbers where you can be reached if questions arise about your review. The journal editor(s) may make minor stylistic changes in your text to make it conform to the KL style.
  8. Submit the review as an e-mail attachment, in Word (.doc or .docx) or  Rich Text Format (.rtf) and in Portable Document Format (.pdf).
