II. Copyright and Creative Commons Attribution Licensing
The copyright and the transfer rights of the digital content of published papers and the journal is owned by the KIEES. All published materials are also assigned a Creative Commons Attribution License (http://creativecommons.org/licebses/by-nc/3.0/). The journal accepts manuscripts for consideration with the understanding that the manuscript has not been published previously and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere, and in addition, that the authors (or their employer, if it holds the copyright) are authorizing the transfer of the copyright to the Institute when the manuscript is submitted. Author should check the copyright transfer conditions and forms at http://www.jees.kr.
III. Research and Publication Ethics
Research published in JEES must have followed institutional, national, and international guidelines. For policies on research and publication ethics that are not stated in these instructions, please refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Guidelines (http://publicationethics.org/resources/code-conduct).
1. Originality and Duplicate Publication

A manuscript submitted for publication in JEES should be an original work with technical values. It must not have been previously published and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. JEES assumes that the materials submitted for its publications are properly available for general dissemination for the readership of those publications. It is the responsibility of the authors, not JEES, to determine whether disclosure of their materials requires prior consent of other parties and, if so, to obtain it. If an author uses charts, photographs, or other graphics from any previously printed materials, he/she is responsible for obtaining written permissions from the publisher to use them in his/her manuscript. Responsibility for the contents of published papers rests upon the authors, not JEES.

2. Conflict of Interest

Authors are required to complete a declaration of conflict of interests. All conflict of interests that are declared will be listed at the end of published articles.

3. Authorship

Authorship should be restricted to those individuals who have met each of the following three criteria: 1) made a significant contribution to the conception and design of the project, or the analysis and interpretation of the data, or other substantial scholarly effort; 2) participated in drafting, reviewing and/or revising the work; and 3) approved the final version for publication. After the initial submission of a manuscript, any changes whatsoever in authorship (adding author(s), deleting author(s), or re-arranging the order of authors) must be explained by a letter to the editor from the authors concerned. The content of this letter must be acknowledged and agreed upon by all of the authors of the paper.

If you accept the policies on research and publication issued by KIEES, authors must click the response of "The Code of Research Ethics" through online.

IV. Submission of Manuscripts

Authors are expected to be members of the KIEES except for some special cases approved by the Editorial Board of KIEES. All manuscripts should be submitted electronically through the online submission and review site (https://mc03.manuscriptcentral.com/jees). For the first submission, you may be required to create an account on the submission site. A manuscript can be submitted at any time of the year. When submitting a manuscript, authors need to make sure that their manuscripts do not provide any of their identities such as authors' names and affiliations as the review is double-blinded. More detailed submission instruction is available in the upper right corner of the submission site. All manuscripts submitted to the Journal must comply with the instruction and the standard format of the Journal. Otherwise, it will result in return of the manuscript and possible delay in publication. For assistance, please contact us via e-mail (admin-jees@kiees.or.kr).

V. Peer Review Process
The manuscript will be forwarded to three reviewers selected for their expertise in the field of the submitted manuscript. The acceptance criteria for all papers are based on the quality and originality of the research and its clinical and scientific significance. During the review process, the author is often asked to expand, rewrite, or clearly explain the specific contents of his/her paper. It is not uncommon that an author is asked to provide another draft with the suggested changes for further review. A revised manuscript should be submitted to the homepage within a month from the date on which any change of the manuscript is requested to the author. Once a manuscript has received the final approval of the reviewers and Editor-in-Chief, the author will be notified and asked to prepare the manuscript for final publication and to possibly complete an additional information form.
VI. Publication Type
The papers are classified into five categories.

Regular Paper should be an original work that contributes to the academic interests of the KIEES members with technical values. The paper should also be written within 12 pages with A4 size including figures, charts, and tables (The main body of text consists of two columns).

Letter consists of reports of preliminary results or short reports on completed work that are of current interest to many researchers in the field. Comments on material previously published in the journal, suggestions for new directions, and errata could be included. Their length must be less than 3 pages (with a two-column format) including paper title, author affiliation, reference, etc.

Review paper will be published by direct submission as well as from invited experts. In both cases, the work will be subject to editorial review. Review papers should critically review topics not only to inform the reader of the background, but also to communicate the state of the art and outstanding research problems.

Technical report is on innovative technical achievements of interest to the community and usually a report of an extensive series of measurements. Report is often involving display in the form of tables or graphs, with text describing the conditions and procedures of measurement.

Editorial is a brief report of research findings adequate for the journal's scope and of particular interest to the community.

VII. Manuscript Preparation
All manuscripts must be written in MS-Word and adhere to the following guidelines:

1. A cover of each paper manuscript should include a title, authors' names (main author and co-authors), author's organizations, contact information (e-mail and phone number), and the author's area of expertise.

2. The first page of a main text should only contain title, abstract with a length of about 150 words, and key words with around five words.

3. The contents of the manuscript should be arranged in the order of abstract, main text, acknowledgments, references, and appendix.

4. The numbers corresponding to chapters in the manuscript should be written in Roman numerals (I, II, III, IV...) and the numbers corresponding to sections should be written in Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, 4...).

5. Equation numbers should be given in Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses on the right-hand margin. They should be cited in the text as, for example Eq. (1) or Eqs. (1)-(3).

6. All tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. They should be referred to in the text and should be numbered according to their order of mention in the text. In addition, all tables should, not only list all abbreviations in the table in footnotes at the end, but also have a title that is concise and describes the table's contents. Vertical lines are not used. The table should be self-explanatory and supplement, not duplicate, the text. If the table or any data therein have been published, a footnote to the table must give permission information to the original source. The structure should be clear, with simple column headings giving all units. A table should not exceed one page when printed. Use lowercase letters in superscripts a, b, c ... for special remarks.

7. All figures should be of high quality meeting with the publishing requirement with legible symbols and legends. In preparing the figures, authors should consider a size reduction during the printing process to have acceptable line clarity and character sizes. Use only figures that are necessary to illustrate the meaning of the text. Figures must be black and white of high contrast. All figures should be referred to in the text as, for example, Fig. 1, Fig. 2(a), or Figs. 1-3.

8. Only those references cited in the text should be listed in the references. Authors are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of their references and the correct text citations. In the text the reference should be numbered in bracket in ascending order (e.g., [1, 3], or [4-6]; Lee [2] and Kim and Park [5]; Jang et al. [7]). In case of the paper title, only the first letter is to be capitalized. However, in case of journal and book titles, the first letter of each word should be capitalized and all of the letters should be italicized. See the example below.

9. When citing any paper published in JEES, it should be indicated the name of the journal as Journal of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science or J. Electromagn. Eng. Sci.

10. Acknowledgment, if needed, appears before the reference. Sponsorship or financial support acknowledgment should be included here.

11. Unit and Abbreviation: If the authors describe length, height, weight, and volume, they should use standard metric units. Temperature should be given in degrees Celsius. All other units should follow the International System of Units (SI). All units must be preceded by one space except percentages (%) and temperatures (°C).

Abbreviations must be used as an aid to the reader, rather than as a convenience of the author, and therefore their use should be limited. Generally, abbreviations that are used less than 3 times in the text, including tables and figure legends, should be avoided. Standard SI abbreviations are recommended. Other common abbreviations are as follows (the same abbreviations are used for plural forms): h (hour), min (minute), s (second), d (day), wk (week), mo (month), y (year), L (liter), mL (milliliter), μL (microliter), g (gram), kg (kilogram), mg (milligram), μg (microgram), ng (nanogram), pg (picogram), g (gravity; not g), nm (nanometer), μm (micrometer), mV (millivolt), mA (milliampere), mW (milliwatt), C (coulomb), μF (microfarad), mH (millihenry), n (sample size), SD (standard deviation of the mean), and SE (standard error of the mean).
