The Korea Economic Institute (KEI) is issuing a call for papers for the next round of its Academic Paper Series—a program to generate monthly academic papers followed by a public discussion of topical issues related to the Korean Peninsula. KEI has commissioned thirty papers in this series so far, on a variety of topics. To read the individual papers, and learn more about the series, please refer to the KEI website: http://www.keia.org/paper_series.php.
KEI is now seeking proposals for up to six more papers to be released between January and June on original subjects of current interest to serious Korea watchers. Proposal topics should correspond with the interests and expertise of the author, and the description should demonstrate confidence that they would make good additions to this well-rounded series.
Papers must be written exclusively for KEI, i.e., not have been presented or published previously in any form.
Papers will need to be approximately 4,000–5,000 words in length. KEI will edit, publish,and distribute finished papers as KEI Academic Papers to over 2,500 government officials, think tank experts, and scholars around the United States and the world. KEI will also collate and publish all of the KEI Academic Papers in a single volume on an annual basis. Papers presented next spring will become chapters in volume IV of On Korea, which will be published in the beginning of 2011.
Authors of papers selected by KEI for the KEI Academic Paper Series will receive an honorarium of $1500 upon completion of the editorial process. KEI will arrange a mutually convenient date for each author to participate in a discussion at KEI conference facilities in Washington with an interested audience—Korea analysts, government officials, and journalists—of his/her selected paper, preferably during the month KEI releases the paper. KEI will provide domestic travel and accommodation expenses for the discussion program.
Interested authors should submit the following information by Monday, November 30, 2009:
• Full Name
• Academic/Institutional Affiliation
• Paper Topic Proposal, including a brief description and proposed outline
• Earliest/latest date paper can be available
KEI will inform the authors of the accepted paper topics on or about December 4, 2009, with the expectation that the initial paper would be distributed in late January. The author of this initial paper will be expected to transmit a first draft to KEI by January 12, 2009. Authors of papers scheduled for distribution later in the year will be separately notified of the required submission dates.
KEI will repeat the call for Academic Papers in or around June 2010 for publication in the fall 2011.
