Formatting should be kept to a strict minimum: the document should use A4 pagination. Titles and subtitles should be the same size and font as running text.
Authors are welcome to submit tables, figures, maps, and other illustrations along with their manuscripts. However, these should be sent as separate files. The authors are responsible for attaining the copyright permission of any reproduction of photographs, tables, etc.
The manuscript should have a separate title page with the title of the article, the authorí»s name, affiliation, status and full contact details (e-mail, address and telephone number). The first page of the manuscript proper should bear the title, but not the authorí»s name, followed by a brief abstract of no more than 200 words and not more than five keywords.
Romanization: The Romanization of words for Korean is preferable according to the McCune-Reischauer system, the Hepburn for Japanese, and the Pinyin (without tone mark indicators) for Chinese. However, we also welcome articles with other systems as long as the author is consistent in its use. The use of Chinese characters is encouraged, where appropriate, as long as it adds explanatory value to the article.
All manuscripts submitted to The International Journal of Martial Arts should neither have been published already nor be under review for publication elsewhere.
