|The journal Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences – Toward Cultivating Global Citizenship (SHSS) is published four times a year by the Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences based at Honam University in Gwangju, Korea.|
The journal invites the submission of original manuscripts in either Korean or English that deal with global citizenship in any aspect.Submissions should be uploaded to the SHSS web site (https://shss.jams.or.kr/co/locale.kci?lang=en_US) or, for non-Korean scholars, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

3. August 31: July 1 for Korean-language articles, July 15 for English-language articles

|To better reach its cosmopolitan objectives and achieve a global readership, an article originally written in Korean will be presented in both Korean- and English-language versions. It is the responsibility of the author(s) to provide a translation into English, although translation of the manuscript into English may be postponed until after the submission is accepted for publication by SHSS.|
|The deadlines for author revisions in response to peer reviewers’ comments and for the English translation of Korean manuscripts would be, for publication in the February 28 issue, February 9; for May 31, May 9; for August 31, August 9; and for November 30, November 9.|
|A submitted manuscript should be the exclusive work of the designated author(s) and cannot currently be on offer to another publisher, nor can it have been previously published except in an earlier form 2 the proceedings of an academic conference or as an upload designated as an unpublished manuscript to a shared-scholarship site such as academia.com or researchgate.net. The manuscript should be submitted in Microsoft Word. Because the final version should be between 11 and 25 pages in length including figures, tables, pictures, and references, the manuscript should not exceed 7,500 words or 40,000 characters.|
|The first page should include:|
1. A title that adequately represents the subject matter and theme of the submission and specifies the appropriate geographical
2. The name(s) of the author(s), current academic or other affiliation(s), email address(es), and, in the case of multiple authors, an
3. An abstract of 150-200 words summarizing the nature, importance, and contributions of the submission. The abstract should not
4. Between 3 and 6 keywords describing the contents and addressing the most significant issues raised by the submission. The keywords
|The text should begin on the next page following. It is recommended and, in the case of longer submissions, required that the text be divided into up to six subsections designated by Roman numerals (I, II, III, etc.) and subsection titles.|
|All figures and, separately, all tables should be consecutively numbered in Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, etc.) in order of appearance and referenced in the text.|
|The title of a figure is placed at the bottom of the figure, while the title of a table is placed at the top of the table. Authors are strongly encouraged to use colors in figures, tables, and photos to enhance legibility and clarity.|
|The reference for issues of style and presentation for this journal is the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2017). Except in titles or quotations that may observe the original author’s choices, the spelling of English-language words and other presentation issues in which British and U.S. styles may differ (for example, the use of double- vs. single-quotation marks) should follow standard American practice.|
|For references and citations the journal uses the author-date format alternative as specified in the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition (2017). An exception from standard Chicago Manual presentation is for Korean authors with standard three-syllable names. Due to the nature of written Korean and the limited number of common Korean family names, house style for the journal allows full names within parenthetical citations; e.g., a proper citation within a Korean-language article, or its translation, to an article by Park Jung-hwan would be (Park Jung-hwan 2018) rather than (Park 2018).|
|All references and citations are to be presented in the Korean Hangeul alphabet or the Roman alphabet. For English-language submissions, sources in other scripts (for example, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Greek, Arabic, or Hebrew) should be transliterated. For Korean-language submissions, house style allows that, at the author(s)’ discretion, sources in other scripts may be presented in the original format.|
|The list of references following the text is presented in one section (English-language submissions) or one or two sections (Korean-language submissions).|
1. For Korean-language submissions, the first section presents Korean-language sources, including translations from other
2. For submissions originally written in English, all sources are grouped in one list of references and alphabetized by author.
Titles of works
|For the list of references in an English-language submission and, if needed, the list of non-Korean language sources, author names should be given as recorded on the title page of the source; initials for first names are permitted only if the source being referenced does not include any other information, and the full name of the author is not available from other sources.|
|For guidance on citations and references, see the complete print or online editions of the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition (2017); the instructions at https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html; or, for quick reference for common types of bibliographical entry and special issues of journal house style, the following examples:
|Korean-language citations and references follow the same format with these exceptions:|
1. Following Asian practice, all names, including all those specified in multiple author or editor entries, are listed with their family names
2. Because there is no difference between capital and lower-case letters in Hangeul, capitalization is irrelevant.
3. Brackets are used instead of italics for the titles of books or journals.
|Within twenty-four (24) hours of the submission of a proposed article for SHSS the chief editor or an individual designated by the chief editor will examine it with regard to the guidelines for submission as outlined above in accordance with the following checklist:|
1. Creation in Microsoft Word
2. Full information as required on author(s)
3. A title descriptive of the content, timeline, and geographical focus (e.g., whether based on data referring exclusively to
4. An abstract of 150-200 words summarizing the nature, importance, and contributions of the submission
5. Between 6 (six) and 8 (eight) keywords
6. Division of text of any significant length into subsections with titles
7. In-text parenthetical citations following the author-date format of the Chicago Manual of Style; use of footnotes, if any,
8. Proper descriptive titles for any tables or figures, with placement of titles as specified (above tables, below figures)
9. For articles submitted in Korean (as well as the required translation into English, if it accompanies the submission in Korean)
one or two
10. In any list of references, full author names as recorded on the title page of the source
(initials to be used only if present on the title
11. In any list of references, adherence to the relevant alphabetical order (Hangeul or Roman alphabet)
12. In any list of references, adherence to the format outlined for author-date references in the Chicago Manual of Style
If deficiencies are found in any of the above twelve (12) items, the submission will be returned promptly to the author or chief author with a description of the deficiency or deficiencies and a request for rectification within twenty-four hours to insure consideration in the upcoming issue of SHSS.
