5. Judging Principle

① The judges who judge candidate thesis for publication will evaluate the results of the review in one of A (pass without modification), B (pass after partial modification), C (pass after major modification), and F (journal cannot be published). The Gyeoroga is referred to the editor-in-chief.

② Regardless of which of the above grades is given, an evaluation review must be attached. We do not accept results without review.

 

6. Selection of published thesis

(1) Principles for selection of publication targets

① The subject of publication shall be thesis that has been reviewed by the date of the holding of the editorial committee to select the subject for publication by the relevant semiannual (issued twice a year: June 30, December 31).

② The selection of publication targets is based on thesis that received grade B or higher from both judges as a result of the review.

③ If there is at least one grade F, in principle, thesis cannot be published. However, if there is a significant gap between multiple reviewers in the evaluation of the same manuscript (A,F), the editor-in-chief is notified of this fact and commissioned a third reviewer for review, and the results are compiled and edited. May be decided by the committee.

④ If the results of the review appear as A, C, B, and C, the editorial reviewer reviews the review opinions and responses to the review opinions, and in principle, requests the original reviewer to review. Publication is not possible if a C grade is received after review. Upon request for reconsideration, the judges will be informed that they can request a third party for review on their behalf if they wish.

(2) Notification of examination results

When it is decided whether or not to select a research application and publish the thesis, this fact is notified to all the submitters of the research application and the authors of the thesis application.
