Manuscript Format Guidelines of the Journal of Korean Society of Environment & Ecology

1. Manuscripts should be written by using a text editing software that has a compatibility with Korean (HWP) on A4 papers in Korean (Myungjo font) or English.

2. Terms should be used as scientific terminologies enacted by the conferences or the Ministry of Science-Technology, and italicized words should be used for scientific names, etc. English notations of proper nouns should follow the rules of the Ministry of Education (est.1984).

3. Korean manuscripts should be listed in the order: title and author(s)' name(s) in Korean, title and author(s)' name(s) in English, Korean abstract, English abstract, introduction, materials and method, results, discussion (results and discussion), acknowledgements, and references. English manuscripts should be listed in the order: title and author(s)' name(s) in English, title and author(s)' name(s) in Korean, abstract, Korean abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion (results and discussion), acknowledgement, and references.

4. Authors' institutional affiliations should be presented at the upper right side with the number and the footnotes with Korean (institutional affiliation) and English (institutional affiliation and its address and e-mail). Correspondents should be marked with an * at the upper right part of the name. The source of funding should be marked with an 'a' at the upper right side by the footnote.

5. The key words should be under 5 lines and should be under either the Korean (Gothic Font) abstract or the English (Italic Capitalized) abstract. However, these key words should not be the words that are used in the title. Scientific names should be written as the following example: (ex. Lespedeza maximowiczii var. tomentella Nakai)

6. While tables and figures should be presented in English, if Korean is required to be used, both Korean and English should be used together. The title of the table should be above the table, and the title of the figure should be at the bottom of the figure. Tables and figures should be attached to the extra pages, and the page numbers should be presented in the body of the text. If figures in a submitted manuscript are not clear, the manuscript cannot be submitted.

7. A specimen proof should be mentioned for biota papers. Otherwise, that manuscript cannot be submitted.

8. The citation in the body of the text should be written in English. When the body of the text cites references, a single-author should be written such as Watson (1953), two-authors should be written such as Mayer and Greenwood (1962), more than three authors should be written such as Harrington et al. (1972). If a citation is mentioned at the end of the sentence, the author(s) and the publication year should be put inside the parentheses as the following: single author (Watson, 1953), two authors (Watson and Crick, 1963), and more than three authors (Watson et al., 1970). If there are more than two citations, the earlier year should come first such as the following: (Watson, 1953; Watson and Crick, 1963; Watson et al., 1970). If there are two or more citations from the same authors, it can be written such as the following: (Kim, 1990a; 1990b).
