∎ Types of manuscripts
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. Discussion: Discussion includes opinions, questions, and responses to the questions associated with the previous published papers of this journal. However, papers for discussion are limited to the ones that are published within the past 2 years.

∎ Contributor requirement
Corresponding authors who submit manuscripts in the journal should be members of the Society with the exception of field reports, special features, and discussions.

∎ Language and length of manuscripts
1. Manuscripts should be written in Korean, including abstracts in Korean and English. Less than 5 terms of the keywords should be added under the abstracts in Korean and English, respectively. Although Korean is recommended for Korean manuscripts, Chinese characters or English are allowed to be utilized for complicated words or for words that would be hard to express in Korean, such as names, names of locations, names of journals, nomenclature, and names of substances.
2. Manuscripts should be written in A4 (210×297mm) using a word processor. 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 Korean Sinmueongjo, font 11, and 200% space are approximately 1 page of printing page, without tables and figures).
3. Technical note and technical report shall not exceed 4 printed pages including all tables and figures.

∎ Manuscript format
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, regardless of the language used in the text. The affiliations and addresses should be marked with asterisks on the upper right of the researchers’names. If the affiliations of the authors are different, authors with different affiliations from the first author shouldbe 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, abstract in English, abstract in Korean, introduction, methods (or materials and methods), results, discussion (or results and discussion), conclusion, acknowledgements, explanation of abbreviations, references, tables, and figures.
3. Abstracts in Korean and English should provide the objectives and the main results in detail within 200 words. However, abstracts in Korean and English may be omitted for special features, technical notes, technical information, and field reports.
4. Text (introduction to conclusion) should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in order to separate the text concisely, 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. Academic words are recommended for utilization within the text. Proper nouns and quantities should be expressed in native languages and Arabic numerals, respectively. In general, 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.

∎ 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 included in separate papers from the text. 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 and the rest of them should be written in the same manners as the other sentences, without punctuations at the end of 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 and the rest of them should be written in the same manners as the other sentences with punctuations. e.g.) Fig.1.Schematic diagram of experimental set-up used for biological wastewater treatment.

∎ Reference preparation
1. References should be numbered in the text (e.g.: ...are in agreement in the results (1)...) and listed in the order in which they are cited within the text. References should be written 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)
2. For journal articles, Authors, “rticle title,”journal name (italicize), issue number (issue number should be marked with Arabic numerals in bold; volume number should be marked with Arabic numerals in parentheses), page number (the first and last pages of the inclusive pages are marked only), year in parentheses.
