I. Paper Submission

  • 1. Submission of a paper will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere. Submission of a paper also implies that, upon acceptance of an article by the journal, the author(s) will transfer copyright of the article to the publisher. It is understood that submission of the paper for publication has been approved by all of the authors.
  • 2. Three copies and a diskette of any manuscript should be sent to the Editor. With prior permission, authors are welcome to submit their manuscript as an e-mail attachment. The Editor is: Professor Sang-Chul Park, Graduate School of Knowledge based Technology and Energy, Korea Polytechnic University 2121, Jeongwang-Dong, Siheung-City, Gyeonggi-Do, 15073, Korea; Tel: +82-31-8041-0324, Fax: +82-31-8041-0349, E-mail:

II. Paper Preparation

  • 1. Papers must be in English, preferably with English orthography.
  • 2. There is no standard length for articles. However, a high priority will be assigned to concise and lucid exposition.
  • 3. The first page of the manuscript should contain the following information: the title, the name(s) of author(s) and an abstract of no more than 150 words. Institutional and departmental affiliation, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address, and acknowledgments should appear in the author footnote.
  • 4. Headings and subheadings of the manuscript, figures and tables are to be numbered consecutively (I., 1., A., Figure 1., Table 1.). Footnotes (except author footnote) are to be numbered consecutively and placed where appropriate throughout the text. The captions and legends on tables and figures must be sufficiently descriptive that they are under-standable without reference to the text. All but the most common abbreviations should be spelled out the first time they are used in the manuscript.
  • 5. Citations in the text or footnotes should give only name of author(s), year of publication, and possibly page numbers or chapter. For two-author citations, spell out both authors on all occurrences. In the case of a publication brought out jointly by three or more authors, it should be cited with “et al.”. Use letters after years to distinguish multiple publications by the same author in the same year. For example: as Smith (1990, pp. 10-15) points out; a recent study (Smith and Spencer, 1990a) shows; Kim et al. (1980, chap. 2) explain that…
  • 6. At the end of the paper there should be a complete list of references. It should be complete with first and last names of authors. For multiple-author publications, name all authors in the list of references. References to papers published in a journal should contain the name of publication, volume, month of publication, and year. The title of a journal must not be abbreviated. References to books should contain the city of publication, publisher, year of publication, and editors where relevant. For an industry or popular journal, do not cite author. Electronic references should have an address permitting retrieval. For example:
    • • Allen, Franklin and Douglas Gale, Comparing Financial systems, Cambridge, The MIT Press, 2000
    • • Asian Wall Street Journal, 22 April 1999
    • • Euromoney, Various issues, 1999-2000.
    • • Hitt, Lorain M. and Eric Bryjolfsson, “Information technology and internal firm or-ganization: An exploratory analysis”, Journal of Management Information System, Vol.14, No.2, 1997.
    • • Information Society Forum, “A European way for the information society”, Third Annual Report, 1999 (

III. Review Processes for APJEUS

What happens to my article when I have submitted it? ? Asia Pacific Journal of EU Studies (APJEUS) places great emphasis on the quality of the articles. Therefore, submitted articles are put through a full double-blind refereeing process in which:

  • • Articles are sent to 2 experts for their peer review.
  • • The reviewers’ recommendations determine whether an article will be
    • o accepted
    • o accepted subject to minor changes
    • o accepted subject to resubmission with significant changes
    • o rejected
  • • For articles which require changes, the same reviewers will be used to ensure that the quality of the revised article is acceptable.

The Editor reserves the right to refuse any article, whether invited or otherwise, and to make suggestions and/or modifications before publication. The publisher shall provide authors of accepted articles with proofs the correction of printing errors. The proofs shall be returned within 7 calendar days of submittal. The publishers shall not be held responsible for errors which are the result of authors’ oversights.

What if my article has multiple authors?
We would expect a corresponding author to be responsible for the article during the refereeing process after their submission and for the collection and provision of the copyright assignment from each author after acceptance.

Do you give me a copy of my article?
You will receive a free copy of your article. You can choose either a hard copy or a pdf file, if authors wish to have. Besides, authors have the option to buy the issue at a special author’s price.
