The Review of Korean Studies is Going Biannual
 
The Review of Korean Studies (RKS) was founded in 1998 in order to advance scholarly communication among Korean Studies scholars around the world. In 2004, the RKS switched to quarterly publication in order to accommodate the burgeoning growth in the field and to allow publication in as broad a range of scholarly topics as possible, spanning both traditional and contemporary subjects.

After careful consideration over the past several months, the RKS Editorial Board has decided to shift the journal from quarterly to biannual publication, in order to allow greater selectivity in the articles accepted for publication and to improve the journal’s comparative standing in the field.

Along with this change, several new sections are being added to expand our coverage into an even wider range of fields in arts and humanities. We will also be adding a feature titled “Korean Studies in Translation,” which is intended to bring the best in contemporary Korean scholarship to an international audience of scholars and students who may have less access to Korean language materials. In addition, our existing feature “Materials for Korean Studies,” which has heretofore been dedicated to introducing major sources for different fields in Korean Studies, will be retitled “Sources on Korean Studies” and will focus on publication of critical primary sources and documents for the study of the history and culture of Korea.

Each issue of the Review of Korean Studies will be published on the 1st of June and December, respectively, with the same domestic price per volume of 10,000 Korean won. For international purchase and subscription, policies have been revised as found the table below in consideration of delivery costs and varied regional affordability. Subscribers who have already paid for the year 2012 issues under our old policy will receive a free extension of their subscriptions for the year 2013.
Because of this change in frequency of publication, our June issue will be our next publication and we apologize to our subscribers who may have been waiting for the March issue.
