1. The purpose of these instructions is to provide manuscript submission guidelines for Corrosion Science and Technology’s (CSTs) Journal publications.
2. Prior to submission, an article should be original and not presented in other journals or elsewhere. Research papers, review papers, letters, and technology reports are considered for Journal publication. Each article type is classified as follows:
2-1. Research Paper: An academically valuable article that presents innovative research on corrosion and its prevention-related fields. The paper should be no more than 10 pages, including the tables and figures. 2-2. Review Paper: A comprehensive paper that presents an academically valuable conclusion, including literature reviews, on the state of research and future challenges in the field of corrosion and its prevention. Indications for review papers should be addressed at the top of the first page of the manuscript and in the contents of each volume. 2-3. Letter: A short report, including important research results or new experimental methods, that requires rapid publication of the research. A letter should be less than three pages, including the tables and figures. Indication for letters should be addressed at the top of the first page of the manuscript and in the contents of each volume. 2-4. Technology Report: Development of technologies for corrosion of metal structures and components that contributes to the understanding of corrosion phenomena. Description of a technique capable of suppressing the deterioration of material parts due to corrosion.
3. Submission of a research article is limited to members of The Corrosion Science Society of Korea, with the exception of co-researchers or invited authors.
4. The author(s) may submit manuscripts at any time online (http://www.j-cst.org). The submission date of the manuscript shall be the date on which the manuscript is submitted on the Journal website, the revision date is when the author’s revision was finally uploaded, and the accepted date shall be the date on which the final decision is made.
5. The manuscript should be written in Korean and/or English. For general academic terms, the use of Korean language is strongly recommended and any unfamiliar and more technical terms might be written in English (e.g., polarization 거동 → 분극 거동). Only capitalize words used at the beginning of a sentence.
6. Manuscript preparation is performed according to the form available online using a Hancom word processing (*.hwp) or Microsoft word processing (*.docx).
(1) For Hancom users, use 바탕체, 12-point font size, and 160% for line spacing.
(2) For Microsoft Word users, use 바탕체, 12-point font size, and 160% for line spacing for Korean. Use Times New Roman font, 12-point font size, and double-spaced lines for English.
7. For English paper titles, the first letter of all words except prepositions, articles, and conjunctions must be capitalized. The first letter of all words that immediately follow hyphens must be capitalized, as well.
8. The full names of all authors must be given in English and the name of the primary author must be listed first.
9. The position of all authors should be given.
[Example] Gil-Dong Hong: Professor, Young-Hee Kim: Researcher, Chul-Soo Lee: Ph.D. Student
10. The place of employment (name of the research organization) must be indicated in the following order: name of the bureau or department concerned, research organization, address, postal code/zip code, and name of the country.
11. Each section of the manuscript should be typed in the following order:
(1) Title and author(s) names and affiliations in Korean (if the manuscript is written in Korean language)
(2) Title and author(s) names and affiliations in English
(3) Abstract in English (150 – 200 words), keywords in English (maximum of five keywords), corresponding author’s E-mail address
(4) Manuscript (Introduction, Experimental Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions)
(5) Acknowledgments (if necessary)
12. In the case of Korean manuscripts, in principle, technical terms recommended by the Ministry of Education should be used. For English manuscripts, the use of technical terms presented in the Chemical Abstract is strongly recommended.
13. Abbreviations of chemical terms and numbers should follow the format indicated in the Chemical Abstract and S.I. should be used for the quantity unit. In principle, numbers and units should be spaced (exceptions: 5%, 5˚). Abbreviated units should be written as 5 wt% (5 wt.% is incorrect) and 5 vol%. When the name of the product is used to clarify the description, an asterisk should follow the product name (e.g., Hastelloy-A*) and a statement that “For simplicity, a product name is used, but this article does not guarantee the quality of the product” should appear at the bottom of the page.
14. The descriptions for all tables and figures (including pictures) in the article should be written in English. All tables and figures should be inserted in the text. The original figure should be clearly drawn in black and the author(s) should acknowledge that the line thickness and font size in the figure may be reduced when the article is published. When preparing a table, appropriate abbreviations may be substituted for long words and their definitions should be given at the bottom of the table. All tables and figures should be numbered consecutively (e.g., Table 1, Fig. 1). Parentheses should be used in figure captions for clarification (e.g., Fig. 1(a) ~, (b) ~, (c) ~), but omit parentheses in the text (e.g., Fig. 1a). The author(s) shall bear the expenses of including colored figures in the text.
15. Equations should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numbers in parentheses. To cite an equation in the text, place the parentheses and Arabic numbers on the right side of the corresponding equation (e.g., equation (1), equation (2)).
16. To cite a reference in the text, place brackets and Arabic numbers on the right side of the corresponding entry and when using et al., italicize the font. Example 1: Reported by Hong Gil Dong et al. , Example 2: corresponds to the experimental data .
a) For a journal reference, use the order of author(s), title of journal (italics), volume number, page, year of publication. The volume number should be bolded and the year of publication should appear in parentheses. At the end of each reference, use the document identification number "doi". If there is no "doi", indicate the online page (e.g., the URL) where the reference can be found. b) For a Conference Proceeding reference, cite in the order of presenter(s), conference name (italics), page (insert “p.”), host name, location (year of publication). c) For a book reference, write in the order of author(s), title of book (italics), edition, volume number (if more than 2), page number (inset “p.”), editor(s) (if applicable), publisher, location (year of publication). d) For a standard reference, cite in the order of standard number, standard name (enactment year). e) For a patent reference, cite in the order of applicant(s), patent title, patent number, (publication date). f) For a Webpage reference, write in the order of author(s), topic title and, URL (publication year). g) For a thesis/dissertation reference, write in the order of author(s), degree, page number, school name, location, and year. If an article is written by two authors, used ‘and’ between their names (e.g., B. S. Han and Y. S. Yoon~) and for more than two authors, separate the author names with commas, where the last author name is preceded by ‘, and’ (e.g., B. S. Han, Y. S. Yoon, and H. Kim~).
