SNUJIA Policies

SNUJIA is a graduate student-run and independently managed nonprofit organization owned entirely by its editorial board.

The journal and its operations are funded by and based out of the Seoul National University Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS). 

Ownership and Management

SNUJIA follows a standard blind peer-review model that ensures the integrity of all published articles. Each article is stripped of identifying characteristics and then randomly assigned to, at least, two peer reviewers who follow a rigorous grading rubric which covers aspects like strength of argument, methodology, originality, language clarity and article significance, to name a few. SNUJIA editors will publish the best articles based on the results of the graded review as well as other factors like relevancy to the issue's theme, among others factors. 

The process of peer reviewing is critical to the ethical and intellectual integrity of our academic institutions. Without peer review, there would be no standard for academic discourse and without a blind peer review, academic integrity could be compromised. 

Peer review also improves the overall quality of the published paper, detects plagiarism/fraud, and contributes to the academic and professional development of the international relations field by updating readers with the latest developments and ideas circulating within their respective fields.
