Article 1 (Qualification for submission)

Members of the society can submit their works, including manuscripts (manuscripts hereafter). Non-members who want to submit manuscripts shall gain membership by joining the society through the home page and paying an enrollment fee and an annual membership fee. In the case of a co-authored paper, the first author, corresponding author, and submitter shall be members, and non-member authors shall register as regular members on the Online Manuscript Submission System.

Article 2 (Areas of research for submission)

Manuscripts in areas related to speech sound, such as phonetics, speech engineering, and speech disorders, can be submitted. A submitted manuscript shall be produced as a result of original research and shall never have been published in Korean or foreign publications.

Article 3 (Classification of submission)

Submitted manuscripts shall be categorized into normal manuscripts and urgent manuscripts. Urgent manuscripts refer to “manuscripts submitted within 15 days from the submission deadline, for which urgent review was requested by the submitter and the urgent review fee was paid.” The same submitter cannot submit more than two manuscripts as a sole author in the same volume and issue.

Article 4 (Method of submission)

The submission shall be made by logging in to the Online Manuscript Submission System. The submitter shall confirm all items in the Author Checklist, including the item regarding compliance with research ethics guidelines, and enter or select appropriate information according to the format of each screen. When submitting a manuscript, the submitter needs to choose between Normal Manuscripts and Urgent Manuscripts and enter the title, abstract, and keywords in the Title and Abstract screen in English, in addition to submitting the manuscript. The submitter shall enter the real names, affiliations, and positions of all authors in the Author screen. The manuscript shall be formatted according to the format of this journal and uploaded after deleting all author information. The manuscript shall not be submitted in a non-editable format such as PDF. The manuscript shall be prepared using HWP (recommended) or MS Word. However, a PDF file shall be submitted when requested by the editorial board in order to prevent errors from occurring due to differences in the editing environment.

Article 5 (Deadlines for manuscripts)

Manuscripts are received anytime; however, the submission deadlines for each issue of the journal are as below.

  • ▪ The journal issued in March: January 31
  • ▪ The journal issued in June: April 30

Article 6 (Review fee and publication fee)

The submitter shall pay a review fee of 60,000 won per manuscript before submission to the bank account designated by this journal. However, for an urgent manuscript, a review fee of 160,000 won shall be paid per manuscript. A publication fee per manuscript, which is 200,000 won up to eight pages, shall be paid (however, the Korean abstract is not included in the page count). If the manuscript is longer than eight pages, an additional 20,000 won shall be paid per page. However, for a manuscript with a funding acknowledgment, an additional 150,000 won shall be paid.

  • ▪ The editorial board may request separate image files. If signs that are not typically used are used in a manuscript, notify the editorial board to this effect and submit the font file along with the manuscript. If a special font is used, notify the editorial board to this effect.
  • ▪ The manuscript should be structured in the following order: English title, author names in English, author affiliations in English, English abstract, keywords, the body, Acknowledgment, References, and author information. The Acknowledgment can be inserted between the body and References with a blank line above and below the Acknowledgment. Details are as below.
  • English Title

    Body text

  • ▪ In principle, figures and tables should be placed on the same page of the corresponding body text or the next page when possible. The figures or tables should be positioned at the top or the bottom of the page. However, there can be exceptions when they must be positioned right next to the corresponding part of the body text. The use of high-resolution images is recommended. Figures or tables, if possible, should be fitted to the width of one column; however, they may span two columns if necessary. Tables and figures should be numbered consecutively in the caption. In-text citations should follow the format “ Figure 1...” or “... In Table 2 ...”
  • ▪ In-text citation of references should be made in the below manner. Attention should be paid to spaces between parentheses and the placement of periods.
  • Examples of citing English papers

    Hong (1996) states that ...

    Hong & Lim (2009) find that ...

    Hong et al. (2018) agree that ...

    Krause & Braida (2004) verify that ...

    Bride et al. (2017) concluded that ...

  • ▪ If a relevant paper is cited in the body text after discussion of the content, a citation should be made as below.
  • Examples of citing English papers

    ... is the case (Hong, 1996).

    ... is the case (Hong & Lim, 2009).

    ... is the case (Hong et al., 2018).

    ... is the case (Hong, 1996; Krause & Braida, 2004).

  • ▪ When multiple papers are cited, the following method is recommended. However, the method need not be followed if the references need to be presented in chronological order or for other reasons.
    • 1) The references should be ordered by the first author’s name in alphabetical order.
    • 2) The name of the author and the year of the cited paper should be separated by a comma (,) and multiple references should be separated by a semicolon (;).
    • 3) In the case of multiple papers written by the same author, separate them by a comma (,). In the case of multiple papers published in the same year, distinguish them by adding letters such as a, b, and c to the year. [Example] said ... (Braun, 1900; Carlton et al., 1750; Jackson, 1800a, 1800b, 1810; Romeo & Juliet, 1600; Wilson, 1650).
  • ▪ The page number of the reference should come after the year. In this case, the year and the page number should be separated by a colon (:) without spaces. If multiple pages are cited, insert a hyphen (-) between the first page and the last page. [Example] said ... (Lim, 1700:15, 1710a:19, 1710b:91; Jeon et al., 1700:15-17, Hong, 1800:5; Johnson et al., 1999:130).
  • ▪ Sometimes papers co-authored by three or more authors are cited in the format as in “Johnson, Wilson, & Jackson (1999)” to show all authors; however, this journal requires such references to be cited in the format “Johnson et al. (1999)” in the body text because detailed information is given in the References.
  • ▪ Et al. originated from the Latin phrase et alii. Use of et al. has now become so common, as with i.e. (< id est) or e.g. (< exempli gratia), that it is not italicized.
  • ▪ When previous works are mentioned in the body text, in principle, all of them should be presented. However, if for unavoidable reasons only some of them are cited, add the word “etc.” after the last reference. Expressions such as “among others,” “to name a few,” and “inter alia” may be used in English papers.
    • Example 1) said ... (Fox & Terbeek, 1977; Zue & Laferriere, 1979, etc.).
    • Example 2) ...a sight for sore eyes (Fox & Terbeek, 1977; Zue & Laferriere, 1979, among others).

If a paper cites software, follow the citation format given by the software, as in the case of Praat. Published references such as instructions, user’s guides, or manuals should be cited in the same way as books. If there are no published references, the information related to the cited content should be presented in the body text or a footnote in the Research method section. If software published on the Internet without written documentation needs for unavoidable reasons to be cited, citation should be made in the same way as other references.

Article 9 (References)

The source of the works cited in a manuscript shall be provided in the list of references titled References. The paragraphs in the list shall be outdented by 10.2pt. The references shall be listed by the last name of the first author in alphabetical order. Multiple papers written by the same author shall be listed by the publication year and papers with a sole author should be presented before co-authored papers. Works listed in the References shall be provided in the format below.
