The Review of Korean Studies (RKS) is an academic journal published biannually in English by the Academy of Korean Studies. Since its first publication in 1998, the RKS has strived to stimulate dialogue and promote the exchange of ideas, theories, and perspectives among Koreanists in both Asia and the West. The journal has been listed in the Korean Citation Index (KCI), Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) and SCOPUS. The RKS welcomes research articles on Korea Studies in any field, but the journal would like to be devoted to the interaction of scholars particularly on “premodern” Korean Studies.
