∎ Types of paper
Journals include research papers, reviews, technical notes, technical information, field reports, special features, and discussions associated with environmental engineering. The manuscripts must not be presented or published in other academic journals and publications before submitting to this journal. In general, the contents of the manuscript are classified as follows.
  1. Research papers: Research papers should include innovative research results along with academically valuable content, conclusion, and facts relevant to the field of environmental engineering.
  2. Review papers: Review papers should provide not only the current research status, issues, and future studies with regards to the areas of expertise in environmental engineering, including literature reviews, but also academically valuable conclusions through comprehensive and creative interpretation.
  3. Technical notes: Technical notes should include creative and simple results with academically new and valuable data.
  4. Technical information: Technical information should provide new and practical information related to the areas of expertise in environmental engineering.
  5. Field reports: Field reports should provide technically valuable data based on field experiences relevant to the investigation reports of realms of expertise in environmental engineering fields as well as on the design and maintenance of environmental facilities.
  6. Special features: The Editorial Board selects topics and authors regarding proper assignments in the area of expertise related to environmental engineering and ultimately, requests such manuscripts.
  7. Letter to the Editor: These contributions include opinions, questions, and responses to the questions associated with the previous published papers of this journal. However, letters to the Editor are limited to the ones that are published within the past 2 years.


∎ Language and length of manuscripts
1) The cover of all manuscripts (the first page) should include the title, full names of researchers, addresses, and institutional affiliations of researchers in both Korean and English (in English only for English manuscripts). If the affiliations of the authors are different, authors with different affiliations from the first author should be marked with a superscript numeral designation on the upper right of the researchers’ names. The primary author is the first author and the corresponding authors are marked with a symbol† on the upper right of the names.
2) The manuscript should be assigned in the following sequence:
Cover page, extended abstract in English, extended abstract in Korean (for Korean manuscripts), introduction, methods (or materials and methods), results, discussion (or results and discussion), conclusions, acknowledgements, explanation of abbreviations, references, tables, and figures.
3) Extended abstract in Korean (may be omitted if an English paper is prepared) and English should provide the objectives, methods, results and discussion, and conclusions within one and half pages. However, abstracts in Korean and English may be omitted for special features, technical notes, technical information, and field reports.
4) The body of the article (introduction to conclusion) should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals, as shown in the example below. e.g.) 1, 2, 3, ……, 1.1, 1.2, ……, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ……, (1), (2), (3), ……
5) The utilization of the SI system is recommended; yet, the C.G.S.system can also be used for a widely utilized concentration unit, such as mg/L.

∎ Manuscript format
1) Manuscripts can be written in either Korean or English.
2) Manuscripts should be written in A4 (210×297mm) using a word processor (.doc, .hwp). The number of pages in the manuscripts is not limited, but should be within a range of 8 pages (one-sided) of the printing pages (2 pages of a manuscript with font 11 and 200% space are approximately 1 page of printing page, without tables and figures). Manuscripts can be changed for authors' conveniences.
3) Technical note and technical report shall not exceed 4 printed pages including all tables and figures.

∎ Tables and figures preparation
1) Titles and footnotes of tables and figures should be written in English and include sufficient information without referring to the text. They should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals (e.g.: Table 1, Table 2, Fig. 1, Fig. 2). All tables and figures should be placed on separate pages at the end. In addition, the locations of tables and figures should be notified in the text as well.
2) The first letter of the title in a table should be capitalized. Use end punctuation for table titles.
   e.g.) Table 1. Effect of temperature on BOD removal efficiency.
3) The first letter of the title in a figure should be capitalized. Use end punctuation for figure titles.
   e.g.) Fig. 1. Schematic diagram of experimental set-up used for biological wastewater treatment.

∎ Reference style
1) References should be indicated by number(s) in superscripts in line with the text. (e.g.: ...are in agreement in the results1,3). Kim and Lee5) ) References should be listed in the following format in general. Number, authors, article title, journal title, book title, edition, publisher name, place of publication, issue (volume), and pages (year of publication)
