Korean Studies: Journal of the Center for Korean Studies

Cover image: Korean Studies

Established in 1977, Korean Studies is an annual peer-reviewed journal that seeks to further scholarship on Korea by providing a forum for discourse on a variety of scholarly topics through interdisciplinary and multicultural articles, book reviews, and essays in the humanities and social sciences.

All scholarly articles on Korea and the Korean community abroad are welcome, including topics of interest to the specialist and nonspecialist alike. The journal is invaluable for Korea specialists as well as those whose interests touch on Korea, the Korean community abroad, or Asian, ethnic, and comparative studies.
