논문투고규정 Paper Submission Bylaw


This instruction for authors is to describe the submission of articles which might be published in Journal of Korean Society for Atmospheric Environment (hereafter, JKOSAE).


The first and corresponding authors of the manuscripts, excluding review and invited papers, should be regular members of Korean Society for Atmospheric Environment (hereafter, KOSAE).


JKOSAE is devoted to the advancement of knowledge in the fields listed below.

  • Atmospheric measurements and analysis
  • Current status and management
  • Dispersion and reaction
  • Control technology
  • Global environment
  • Health and ecological effect
  • Indoor air quality
  • Other related fields
Five types of manuscripts are published in this journal:

(1) Research papers, (2) Review papers, (3) Technical information, (4) Special features, and (5) Discussion and Reply.

  1. Research Papers: Original findings pertaining to the scope of the journal will be published after editorial review. In full-length research articles, authors can describe new experimental or theoretical results of significant importance.
  2. Review Papers: Authoritative review can be published eithor by the invitation or by direct submission. In both cases, the work will be subject to peer-review by three reviewers. The review article should include critical review of important areas in atmospheric science and engineering in order to inform the general reader of the background, a state of the art, and outstanding research problems.
  3. Technical Information: A report, that includes relevant analytical or treatment information, new experimental elaboration on previous journal articles, etc., with a brief piece of work, although not sufficiently comprehensive for a full article, can be published as technical information.
  4. Special Features: Special features will be published by invitation only and will be on atmospheric environmental topics judged to be important by editorial board.
  5. Discussions and Reply: Opinion and comments regarding the contents of articles published in Journal of Korean Society for Atmospheric Environment within one year period can be published as discussion and reply paper.
