Call for a Special Issue Proposal

JIIS invites proposals for special issues that focus on a specific area of research that has broad appeal and falls within the aims and scopes of the journal. Special issues provide an excellent opportunity to review an addressed topic, examine previously unaddressed aspects, propose and develop new approaches, exchange perspectives and encourage new lines of research. Those who are interested in organizing a special issue on JIIS are supposed to submit the proposal to the Editor-in-Chief via an e-mail(hcahn@kookmin.ac.kr). The proposal should include the following components:

  • Description of importance of the topic
  • Detailed areas of the topic
  • How to attract and review the submissions
  • Brief background information of the Guest Editors
    (The Guest Editors are to be recommended in the proposal)

Selection of special issues will be made by the Editor-in-Chief, in consultation with the Associate Editor.
