Journal of Korean Studies
The University of Washington-Korea Studies Program, in collaboration with Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, is proud to publish the Journal of Korean Studies.
The Journal of Korean Studies began at the University of Washington and was published in Korea (Dong-A Publishing Company) in 1969. The original series had 2 issues Volume 1 No. 1 (1969) and Volume 1 No. 2 (1971) were edited by Dr. David Mesler.
In 1979, Dr. James Palais (PhD Harvard 1968), former UW professor of Korean History edited and published Volumes 1-5 of the second series of the Journal of Korean Studies, Volumes 6-8 1988-92 were edited by Mike Robinson. For thirteen years it was a leading academic forum for innovative, in-depth research on Korea. In 2004, editors Gi-Wook Shin and John Duncan revived this outstanding publication at Stanford University and published Volumes 9-13.
In August 2008 editorial responsibility transferred back to the University of Washington. With the editorial guidance of Clark Sorensen and Donald Baker, the Journal of Korean Studies (JKS) continues to be dedicated to publishing outstanding articles, from all disciplines, on a broad range of historical and contemporary topics concerning Korea. In Fall 2016, editorship will transfer to Charles Armstrong and Theodore Hughes at the Center for Korea Research/Columbia University.
Articles appearing in the JKS are abstracted and indexed in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), Arts and Humanities Citation Index® (A & HCI), Sociological Abstracts, Social Services Abstracts, Worldwide Political Science Abstracts, PAIS International, Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts, Bibliography of Asian Studies, Historical Abstracts, and America: History and Life.
