:: Author’s Checklist


A manuscript is composed of a text and illustration(s). Authors are requested to submit the text in a MS-Word or HWP file and the illustration(s) in *.tif, *.eps, *.ai, *.jpg, *.gif files with high resolution (300dpi) for each figure. Editors of the journal reserve the right to adjust manuscript style to certain standards of uniformity.


Papers should be written in the most concise form. Article is the principal mode of reporting research and should be as concise as possible. Short Communication and Letter should not exceed 6 printed pages including tables, figures, and references. It is for short paper whose importance of timeliness justifies rapid reviewing and publication.
Review and Introduction are also accepted as far as they are beneficial to the members of the societies. The length of the above article, review and introduction should be
less than 20 printed pages. Discussion should be concise and brief, and should not exceed 3 printed pages. Occasionally long papers are accepted particularly for those of a review nature.


A text should be written in double-spaced format with 2.5 or 3.0cm wide for each margin. A font size of 11pt is required and ‘Batang’ or ‘Times New Roman’ font are preferred. The standard order of a text is as follows: title page, page of abstract and keywords, main text, acknowledgments, references, appendices, tables, and figure captions. All of the references, tables, and figures should be referred to in the text. Do not import the figures or tables into the main text. All pages should be numbered consecutively, including pages of acknowledgments, references, appendices, tables, and figure captions.
Title page: A title page should contain the title of a manuscript, the name(s) of the author(s), their full postal address(es), e-mail address(es), and a short running title of less than 80 characters including spaces. The corresponding author should be identified with an asterisk and a footnote. An e-mail address, a phone number, and a fax number of the corresponding author should be included in the footnote. All other footnotes (except for table footnotes) should be identified with superscript Arabic numbers. Abstract and keywords: An abstract should be provided with all types of papers and of not more than 400 words. It must be intelligible without reference to the paper; it should be a condensation of the essential information in the paper and not be a recital of the subjects covered. The abstract should not contain references and should be a paragraph. Authors are requested to supply up to five keywords that can be used for indexing/abstracting purposes.
Main text: To improve the readability of papers, authors may use up to four levels of headings as illustrated below:
   3.1. Damage assessment
      3.1.1. Physical weathering
         Cracks and fissures
The SI unit should be used wherever possible. Abbreviations are punctuated. There is no space between opening and closing brackets and the following and preceding words. Small capitals should not be used. The Romanization of Korean geographic names is highly recommended to follow those suggested by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. It is available on the website (http://www.hangul.or.kr/M4-4.htm). To cite references in the main text, refer to the author’s surname (without initials) and the year of publication (e.g., “Since Lee (2001) has shown that...” or “This is in the agreement with results obtained later (Kim, 2006)”). For three or more authors, use the first author followed by “et al.” in the main text (e.g., “Kim et al. (1958) proved that...” or (Lee et al., 1998)).
References: All publications cited in the main text, tables, and figures should be presented in a list of references (references section) following the main text of the manuscript. Please make sure that the references are accurate. Unpublished information, including papers in preparation or submitted but not yet accepted, should be omitted from the list. These can be cited in the main text as “C.H. Lee (unpublished manuscript)” or “H.T. Kang (personal communication)”. The list of references should be arranged alphabetically by authors’ surnames. Use lower-case letters to distinguish references that would have identical citations: for example, Smith (1993a), or Smith (1993a, 1993b), or (Smith 1993a, 1993b). The manuscript should be carefully checked to ensure that the spelling of authors’ names and dates are exactly the same in the main
text as in the reference list. The names of journal, book, abstract, publishing company, university, etc. should be written in full name instead of abbreviation. The journal’s format for the references is as follows.

When referring to papers with the same author, the sequence should be: first author only, chronological; two authors, chronological; and three or more authors, chronological. Examples are given below.
Hong, G.D., 2006, .......
Hong, G.D., Jeong, K.S. and Honza, E., 1985, .......
Hong, G.D., Hwang, I.G. and Choe, M.Y., 1990, .......

Tables: Tables should begin on a separate page and be numbered consecutively. They should be referred in the main text but should not be included in it, and only one table can be put in each page. They should be prepared in a HWP or MS-Word file. The table titles should end without periods, be brief, be typed with sentence-style capitalization directly at the top of their respective tables, and followed by a double rule. The column headings (with appropriate units in parentheses) are followed by a single rule. Another rule should be placed at the end of the table, and followed by footnotes if necessary. No vertical lines can be used, and vertical rules should be used in tables. Tables must be double spaced. Long tables and other types of data containing information of limited interest will not normally be published. Footnotes to tables should be typed below the table and should be referred to by superscript lowercase letters. Footnotes end with periods. Tables should not duplicate results presented elsewhere in the manuscript (e.g., in graphs) and authors are supposed to indicate clearly in the main text where each table should be positioned. The current issue of the journal will provide examples of approaches to complex tables.
Figure captions: Figure captions should be prepared in a separate page and every caption should end with period.


Illustrations such as photographs, charts, and diagrams are all to be referred to as figure(s). JPG, TIF, EPS, AI, and GIF formats are acceptable. They should be numbered
consecutively in the order to which they are referred in the main text. They should accompany the manuscript, but should not be included within the main text. All illustrations should be clearly marked with Arabic numerals in order of reference in the main text. Each figure must be provided with self-explanatory caption that is collectively placed on the figure captions page at the end of the text. Separate parts of a single figure should be labelled (A), (B), (C), etc. and referred to as A, B, C, etc. in the text and captions (e.g., (Figure 3A). Also, separate parts of a single figure should be compiled into one figure (i.e., one JPG or one TIF file). Authors are supposed to indicate clearly in the main text where each figure should be positioned.
Drawings: All letterings, lines, and points on figures should be sufficiently large and bold to permit reproduction when the figures have been reduced to a size suitable for inclusion in an article. On a figure, the ‘ARIAL’ font for letters and numbers is required and they should be greater than 2.0 mm after reduction. Lines should thicker than 0.2 mm. Dye-line prints or photocopies are not suitable for reproduction. Do not use any type of shading on computer-generated illustrations.
Maps: All maps should include a metric bar scale and a north arrow.
Photographs: Original photographs must be supplied as they are to be reproduced (e.g., black and white or color). If necessary, a scale should be marked on the photographs. Please note that photocopies of photographs are not acceptable.
Color illustrations: Color illustrations can be accepted however, authors will be expected to make a contribution towards the extra printing cost about 200,000 won (200.00 USD) for each printed page. If, together with your accepted article, you submit usable color figures and then Journal of Conservation Science will ensure, at no additional charge, these figures will appear in color on the web regardless of whether or not these illustrations are reproduced in color in the printed version. For color reproduction in print, you will receive information regarding the costs from the journal after receipt of your accepted article. Because of technical complications which can arise by converting color figures to ‘grey scale’ (for the printed version should you not opt for color in print) please submit in addition usable black and white prints corresponding to all the color illustrations if requested.
