The International Journal of Crafts and Folk Arts Submission Guidelines
The International Journal of Crafts and Folk Arts invites submissions of academic papers, short
articles, reviews and news related to crafts and folk arts. Manuscripts are accepted for review with the
understanding that their content is original and that they have not been submitted elsewhere or previously
published. Submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by two or three specialists in the relevant discipline.
Rejected manuscripts will not be returned.
Manuscripts should range between 5,000 and 8,000 words in length, including footnotes, references,
tables and figures. An abstract of no more than 150 words, 6 to 8 keywords and curriculum vitae must
also be included in the submission. Manuscripts must be double-spaced with 12-point type. For detailed
guidelines and instructions, please visit our website, http://creativecity.jinju.go.kr.
Manuscripts should use footnotes rather than endnotes. The journal follows the Chicago Manual of Style
(Chicago and London: Univ. of Chicago Press) in matters of punctuation, quotations, abbreviations, etc. It
also uses the author-date system for references. All sources are cited in the text in parentheses by author’s
last name and year of publication, with page numbers as appropriate: (Kim 2012, 65). For more detailed
guidelines, please consult the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.
Manuscripts will be edited to conform to the International Journal of Crafts and Folk Arts style manual
and minor changes may be made in the interest of clarity without consulting the authors.
