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.
