- Short Papers: Brief technical notes or practical implementation issues especially in industrial applications, and reporting timely developments of initiatives, new or creative ideas.
2. Research Publication Ethics
The Korea Robotics Society serves the robotics profession and society in Korea at large in many ways, among them by publishing journals which present the results of current scientific and engineering research and practice. The service inevitably bears the responsibility of editors, authors, and reviewers to maintain high ethical standards relating to the submittal, review, and publication of manuscripts. Persons engaged in the publication, specifically, for editors, authors, and manuscript reviewers must abide by the ethical guidelines at http://www.jkros.org/ForContributors/02.php and institutional, national, and international guidelines. For policies on research and publication ethics that are not stated in these instructions, "Guidelines on Good Publication Practice (http://publicationethics.org/international-standards-editors-and-authors)" can be applied.
3. PEER REVIEW PROCESS
Once manuscripts are submitted, they will be reviewed by three or more experts in the corresponding field. The Editorial Board may request that authors revise the manuscripts in light of the reviewers' suggestions. The authors should upload the revised files with a reply to each item in the reviewers' comments after revision of the manuscript. The manuscript review process should be completed until the Editorial Board makes a final decision on the approval for publication. Details on the review process is described in http://www.kros.org/website/05journal04.php.
The Korean Robotics Society requires a corresponding author to sign a copyright transfer agreement on behalf of all the authors for the maintenance and protection of the Society's ownership and rights as well as for the protection of the original authors from misappropriation of their work. If this agreement is not carried out, the Korea Robotics Society will not publish the manuscript. This agreement is sent with the proofs to the corresponding author.
