Korea and the World Economy aims to be a high
quality journal of global standing. The Journal will provide a worldwide forum
for the dissemination of policy-related research on the Korean economy within
the context of the world economy. Although the Journal's primary focus will be
the Korean economy, it will also explore regional and global issues relevant to
the Korean economy. Article will meet the most rigorous technical standards but
should be accessible to academic and non-academic readers alike.. Preference
will be given to articles which are policy-oriented. Articles reporting on
research findings should be relatively free from technical material and discipline-specific
jargon. Mathematical equations should be minimized.
The former title of this
journal was the Journal of the Korean Economy. The title was changed to Korea
and the World Economy since Vol.11, No. 2 (August 2010) to reflect the Journal's
plans to publish more articles on regional and global issues which impinge
upon the Korean economy.
To encourage excellence in
research published in Korea and the World Economy, the Association of Korean Economic Studies
will annually award the US$ 1,000 Prize to the author(s) of the best paper
carried in the journal during the preceding year.
Korea and the
World Economy is a peer-refereed
journal and is indexed in the Journal of Economic Literature.
