The Journal of Korean Studies (JKS) is pleased to announce the August 15, 2017 launch of a new online system that will facilitate all aspects of manuscript submission, peer review, and manuscript tracking. Through the Editorial Manager, JKS’s author, reviewer, and editorial community will perform all tasks associated with the peer review process over the web in a user-friendly environment. Please visit JKS’s new online system at http://www.editorialmanager.com/jks/Default.aspx and register to submit an article or to serve as a reviewer.
We encourage all new users to register at the same URL by clicking “Register” in the main navigation bar at the top of the page. An email then will be sent to you to create your username and password. After you log in, you can click “Update My Information” in the blue menu bar and change your username and password if you wish.
We encourage you to update your profile in the JKS’s Editorial Manager system. The Editors will use designated areas of expertise in the profile data as a resource for selecting potential reviewers. Keeping this information up to date will ensure that potential referees have opportunities to review new papers in the fields in which they have the most interest and/or expertise.
Please note that manuscripts submitted before the August 15, 2017 launch of the JKS’s Editorial Manager system will continue in the review process using our traditional e-mail-based procedures. If you have such a manuscript under review, do not attempt to upload your revised files into Editorial manager; instead, email the revised manuscripts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Authors and reviewers of manuscripts submitted before August 15, 2017 should send correspondence and reviewer reports, as usual, via e-mail to the appropriate JKS Editorial Office. If you have any questions about a manuscript currently in the peer review process, please contact the editorial office, via e-mail, at email@example.com.
For manuscripts submitted on or after August 15, 2017, all participants in the peer review process must use JKS’s new site at http://www.editorialmanager.com/jks/Default.aspx. If you have any questions or encounter problems, please contact by clicking the ‘contact us’ in the main navigation bar.
Contact information for the JKS’s Editorial Offices is available in the “About Us” link, located on the site jks.weai.columbia.edu.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the Journal of Korean Studies.
