The International Journal of Korean History (IJKH) is published by the Center for Korean History at Korea University in Seoul, Korea. The Center was established in November 1997 to promote and further the study of Korean history at the national and international level.
The International Journal of Korean History is an international scholarly journal, launched with the support of the “CORE, initiative for College of Humanities Research and Education” project at Korea University, and published by the Center for Korean History. The Journal promotes original research and new analyses and interpretations through articles, book reviews, and translated scholarship its international authors and readers, and to the development of Korean studies both in and outside of Korea. The original mission of the Journal was to introduce the works of Korean scholars to the international academic community. While we are still dedicated to this goal, we are also particularly interested in encouraging new interpretations, perspectives, and approaches to Korean history that can include a wider audience and contribute to the development of the field in general. For the past few years, we have made a concerted effort to broaden the definition of what constitutes Korean history. This includes incorporating multi or inter-disciplinary research from all different academic and geographical areas.
The Journal is published biannually (on February 27th and August 30th of each year) and accepts paper submissions throughout the year.
Along with publication of the IJKH, the Center for Korean History also sponsors academic workshops and conferences, publishes the original work of young scholars, and supports academic exchange with overseas research organizations. As the IJKH intends to fulfill the role of bridging different historical viewpoints and promoting a more robust academic dialogue, its editorial board includes both Korean and foreign scholars.
We hope that this scholarly endeavor will promote the development of Korean history.
