EDITORIAL AND CONTENT CONSIDERATIONS

Aims and Scope
Pacific Focus is the official journal of the Center for International Studies, Inha University, Korea, and publishes original papers covering security, political economy, regionalism, environment, migration, civil society, and multi-culturalism in the Asia-Pacific region.

Editorial Review and Acceptance
The acceptance criteria for all papers are the quality and originality of the research and its significance to our readership. Except where otherwise stated, manuscripts are peer reviewed by two anonymous reviewers and the Editor. Final acceptance or rejection rests with the Editorial Board, who reserves the right to refuse any material for publication. Submitted manuscripts should be original pieces of work that have not been published in other places or not currently on offer to another publisher.

Manuscripts should be written in a clear, concise, direct style. Where contributions are judged as acceptable for publication on the basis of content, the Editor and the Publisher reserve the right to modify typescripts to eliminate ambiguity and repetition and improve communication between author and reader. If extensive alterations are required, the manuscript will be returned to the author for revision.

PREPARING THE MANUSCRIPT

Optimising Your Article for Search Engines
Many students and researchers looking for information online will use search engines such as Google, Yahoo or similar. By optimising your article for search engines, you will increase the chance of someone finding it. This in turn will make it more likely to be viewed and/or cited in another work. We have compiled these guidelines to enable you to maximise the web-friendliness of the most public part of your article.

Style and Format
Spelling. The journal uses US spelling and authors should therefore follow the latest edition of the Merriam–Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.
Abbreviations. In general, terms should not be abbreviated unless they are used repeatedly and the abbreviation is helpful to the reader. Initially use the word in full, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses. Thereafter use the abbreviation only.
• The style of the text and footnotes must conform to The Chicago Manual of Style (see below).
• Manuscripts must be double-spaced, using 12-point font and in a Microsoft Word file.

PARTS OF THE MANUSCRIPT

• Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 40 pages (or approximately 11,000 words) including footnotes.
• Submissions should include an author's bio-data (less than 100 words), an abstract (150-250 words), keywords, and a bibliographic reference list (less than 4 pages).
• Figures. The journal does not accept color figures. Figures should be submitted in black and white only.

Footnotes

Footnotes should be placed together at the end of the manuscript.
