『Korean Journal of Oral History』 call for papers

The editorial board of the Korean Journal of Oral History (KJOH), an official journal of the Korean Oral History Association (KOHA), invites scholars to contribute to the First Issue to be published in the end of October 2010.  Afterwards the journal will be published biannually, April and October.

The language of publication is mainly Korean, but articles in English as well as in Japanese would be published. Submitted manuscripts are refereed and considered for publication on the understanding that they are original and not under consideration elsewhere.  Upon publication, all rights, including subsidiary rights, are owned by KOHA.  The author retains, however, the right to use his or her article in any book of which he or she is the author or editor after it has appeared in KJOH.

Authors must send a manuscript, presented according to the journal’s guidelines.

Submissions should be in Word format via email.  Manuscript, including footnotes and references, should be double-spaced in 12 pt. font.  Footnotes should be numbered serially and included at the end of the text before the reference section.   To protect anonymity, only the title of an article should appear on the manuscript and the abstract.  A separate cover page bearing the title of an article, the full name(s) of author(s), the main title and affiliated institution, and email address(es), should be accompanied.

Each article should include an abstract of between 100 and 200 words, as well as a list of key words.  For manuscripts in English, in addition to an abstract in English language, one in Korean language is welcome, if authors can provide; if they cannot, the editorial board will translate an English abstract into a Korean one.  For manuscripts in Japanese, in addition to an abstract in Japanese language, one in English language must be included; if authors cannot provide a Korean one, the editorial board will translate a Japanese abstract into a Korean one.

All references to monographs, articles, and statistical sources are to be identified at the appropriate point in the text by last name of author, year of publication, and pagination where appropriate, all within parentheses.  Specify subsequent citations of the same source similarly; do not use “ibid.,” “op. cit.,” or “loc. cit.”  When the author’s name is in the text: Portelli (1998).  When the author’s name is not in the text: (Vansina 1985). Pagination follows the year of publication: (Vansina 1985: 61-65).  With dual authorship give both names: for three or more use “et al.”: (Perks and Thomson 1998) and (Pillemer et al. 1991).  With more than one reference to an author in the same year, distinguish them by use of letters (a, b) attached to the year of publication: (Parsons 1961a).  Enclose a series of references with a single pair of parentheses, separated by semicolons: (Parsons 1961b; Portelli 1998; Vansina 1985).

List all references cited in the text, alphabetically by author(s), providing the full list of multiple authors, within author(s), by year of publication. The form for the listing of references is as follows.
