Regulations for Manuscript Contributors to Phonetics and Speech Sciences

Adopted on January 14, 2009

Modified on March 31, 2014

Article 1. (Contributors’ Requirements)

Contributors should be member(s) of the Korean Society of Speech Sciences. Nonmembers should join the society before submitting manuscripts.

Article 2. (Subject Area)

Submitted manuscripts should be the contributors’ own creative research outputs in phonetics, speech engineering, communication disorders, speech pathology, or other fields related to the speech sciences. The manuscripts should not have already been published in domestic or international journals or submitted elsewhere for review.

Article 3. (Manuscript Classification)

Submitted manuscripts are classified into <Articles>, <Book Reviews>, and <Technology Reports>. Articles are divided into <Regular Articles> and <Urgent Articles>. Urgent articles are reserved only when urgent publication is required.

Article 4. (Manuscript Submission Method)

Manuscripts should be submitted online to the ‘Manuscript Submission and Management System of the Society’ after deleting the author(s)’ information in the manuscripts and converting them to PDF files. Manuscripts should be fully edited, observing the style guidelines for the body, figures, and tables. Contributors of urgent articles should submit an application of urgent submission to the Editor-in-Chief. Each submitted article should be accompanied with a document of ‘Observance of the Ethical Principles of the Korean Society of Speech Sciences for Research and Agreement of Copyright Transfer’.

Article 5. (Submission Deadlines)

Manuscripts are accepted online at any time. Deadlines for each issue are as follows:

  • First issue (March): January 31
  • Second issue (June): April 30
  • Third issue (September): July 31
  • Fourth issue (December): October 31

Article 6. (Review and Publication Fee)

Contributors should pay a review fee (₩40,000/$40) to the designated bank account before manuscript submission. A review fee (₩100,000/$100) is charged for urgent submissions. The publication fee is ₩200,000/$200 for an article of eight or fewer journal pages. An additional fee of ₩10,000/$10 is charged for each page over the regular eight-page limit. Articles with research grant/fund acknowledgements should pay an additional publication fee of ₩100,000/$100. Authors should pay for any color or special printing costs.

Article 7. (Offprints)

Contributors will receive fifteen copies of each full printed article with or without research grant acknowledgments. Additional copies may be ordered by the authors when their manuscripts are accepted for publication, and the cost of the additional copies should be paid by the authors before the final printing job.

Article 8. (Language)

Manuscripts should be either in Korean or in English. Korean manuscripts should not include Chinese characters. All Korean and English manuscripts should have abstracts and references in English. Korean manuscripts should have references both in Korean and in English.

Article 9. (Manuscript Writing Style)

Manuscripts should be submitted in HWP or MS Word. Figures should be inserted into the body of the text or in separate jpg files. Special font files should be submitted for review if the phonetic fonts are not in the public domain. (Phonetic fonts of HWP are preferable to those of MS Word.)

Details of the manuscript style are as follows:

  • ∙ Paper size, A4; titles and abstracts, one column box; main text, two columns; top and bottom margins, 17.8 mm; left and right margins, 16.5 mm; top header, 10 mm; bottom header, 7.6 mm; font style, 'Humanmyungjo' for Korean manuscripts, Times New Roman for English manuscripts.
  • ∙ Manuscripts should consist of the Korean title, English title, Korean author name(s), English author name(s), English abstract, keywords, main body, and references, followed by author information. Details regarding the font size, line spacing, and indentation for each item are as follows: Korean title, 14 point; English title, 12 point; Korean author name, 10 point; English author name, 10 point; English abstract, 10 point; keywords, 10 point in bold; title of main text, 10 point; main text, 9 point with a line spacing of 170% and two-space indentation for the first line of a paragraph; references, 9 point with a line spacing
  • of 170%; author information, 9 point with a line spacing of 130%.
  • ∙ Numbered figures and tables should be inserted into the main body. Figures should be drawn using graphics applications (MS-Visio, PowerPoint, Windows Paint), converted, and attached in jpg format at high resolution. Figures and tables should fit into one column in the main body, but larger ones may be inserted across two columns.
  • ∙ Figures and tables should be numbered in the captions. Use < > to describe them in the main body (i.e., <Figure 1>, <Table 2>).

Article 10. (References)

Authors should list the references they cited or quoted from other authors when the sources are not their original ideas. The overarching principle for the use of references is to help readers search for and obtain cited information easily. Reference entries should be ordered alphabetically by the last name of the first author. Multiple papers by the same author should be ordered by year. Single-author entries should precede multiple author entries by the same author. Korean manuscripts should include English reference lists, followed by Korean lists in parentheses. Each reference entry should be formatted with a hanging indent (the first line of each entry begins to the 10 point left of where the following lines begin.). Authors may place numbers in order, such as [1], before each entry. Authors may check the reference format in the previous printouts, which are not described in this guideline.
