2. Authors are required to use terms that are established by KSEE or the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. Words that need to be indicated in Italic including scientific name will be written in Italic. Spelling of a proper noun will be based on the guidelines developed by the Ministry of Education in 1984.

3. For Korean manuscript, please write title and author in Korean and then in English. The body should be written in the following order: abstract in Korean, abstract in English, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion (results and discussion), acknowledgement and literature cited. For English manuscript, title and author should be mentioned first and then in Korean. The structure of the manuscript will be the same as Korean manuscript. But English abstract comes before the Korean abstract. 

4. The name of the organization which the author belongs to and its address will be marked as a number on the upper right of the author’s name. And they should be mentioned in a foot note both in Korean (name of the organization) and in English (name of the organization, address and e-mail address). The corresponding author will be marked as an asterisk on the upper right of the author’s name and mentioned in a footnote. The source of research expenses will be indicated as a on the upper right of the title and described in a footnote.

6. Tables and figures should be written in English. The title of the table should be mentioned above the table and the title of the figure should be mentioned below the figure. Tables and figures need to be attached in a separate paper and their pages will be indicated in the article. Please draw the figure on a tracing paper or print it out. Letters in the figure on the tracing paper should be written on the separate paper (copying paper of the figure). Laser print or equivalent will be preferred for the print out. If you use tracing paper for a figure, the thickness of the line should be considered. If a laser printer is used for a figure, the thickness of the line and size of the letters should be appropriately chosen by considering the reduction rate at the time of printing. If lines and letters are not clear when printed out, the author should draw the figure again and submit it. 

7. Authors of citations should be arranged based on the following instruction. Single author: Gil-dong Hong(1938) or Watson(1953) Two authors: Gil-dong Hong and Mun-su Park(1941) or Mayer and Greenwood(1962) More than three authors: Gil-dong Hong et al. (1942) or Harrington et al.(1972)
