Transactions is a fully refereed journal published once a year in May. Papers about any aspect of Korea, past or present, may be submitted for publication in Transactions at any time. They should be serious, well documented studies on topics related to aspects of Korean nature, culture and history etc. Romanization of Korean names etc should use the McCune-Reischauer system or the current official Korean government system. Papers should not normally exceed 15 single-spaced A4 pages. Documentation (citations) should be in endnote / bibliography style, following the 15th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Illustrations, especially those that would require printing in color are not normally acceptable for reasons of cost.


 Inquiries and submissions should be addressed by email to the General Editor, Samuel Hawley, or to the Chairman of the RASKB Publications Committee (currently Brother Anthony)
