2. Types of Submitted Manuscripts

The manuscripts to be submitted to and published in the Journal of KSCDP are classified into research papers, technical notes, and discussions. The submitted manuscripts shall comply with the following provisions. If a submitted manuscript is based on articles for academic conferences, research reports, theses and dissertations, or academic columns, it is essential to footnote that the whole article or part thereof is already published as illustrated in the following example.

“Example”

This paper is based on the paper presented in the first annual academic conference of KSCDP in 2013.

2.2 Technical Note
Although it is not written in the research paper format, a research report can be submitted as a technical note if it includes contents of new studies, technical outcomes, and ideas of new issues.
2.3 Discussion
Discussion can be submitted to be complementary to original author’s research method and result in a paper already published in academic journals, or suggest different data or opinions as opinions on the paper, and the original author is obliged to respond to the opinions.

It is essential to write the title and contents of a Figure (Fig.) in English, and use high-resolution figures, diagrams or graphs to explicitly represent the contents thereof. It is essential to mention figures in the paper in question, and write figure numbers and title just below the figures. Serial numbers shall be used for figure numbers without dividing chapters and paragraphs. That is, it is essential not to use the figure numbers, for example, “Fig. 2.1”. If one and the same title has a plurality of Figures, they shall be divided with (a), (b), (c), ... to give subtitles. Capital letters shall be used for the first letter of the first word of figure title, and small letters after the capital letters except abbreviations, place names and proper nouns.

It is allowed to write just figure numbers and titles in the location of figures in a paper, and then add figures as appendixes or insert them directly in the location thereof in the paper. Original figures shall be output of a high-resolution drawing system or laser printer or better quality machine. The width of each figure shall be based on 7 cm (one column) on printed paper surface, and can be 14 cm (full column) if required. Therefore, line thickness and font size in the legend shall be adjusted in consideration of reduction if figures are created bigger than the specified size.
7.5.3 Tables
It is essential to write table titles and contents in English, mention the tables in a paper in question, and write table numbers and titles on top thereof.

If one and the same title has a plurality of tables, they shall be specified with (a), (b), (c), ... to divide them (for example: Table 1(a), Table 1(b)). It is essential to use capital letters for the first letter of the first word of table title, and small letters after the capital letters except abbreviations, place names and proper nouns.

“Example”

Table 1. Solitary wave condition experiment

It is allowed to write just table numbers and titles in the location of tables in a manuscript, and then add tables as appendixes or insert them directly in the location thereof in the manuscript.
7.5.4 Equations
It is essential not to include equations in text lines and write them in different lines. It is essential to mention equations in a paper in question. All symbols (variables) used in an equation shall be written in italics, and in the paper in italics if used. For equations, serial numbers shall be written in parentheses without specifying chapters at the right end of the row where the equations are written according to the order mentioned in the paper. In addition, it is essential to describe the symbols included in the equation just below the equation.

“Example”

in which Δr: relief displacement, h: flight height, H: flight height, and r: relief displacement.

7.5.5 English, Abbreviations and Quantity Expression

It is essential to write author’s last name, and all authors’ last name if a paper in question was written by one or two authors (e.g., Hur, 1998; El-Hasan and Easa, 2000). If the article in question was written by three or more authors, it is essential to write the main author’s last name and use et al. in italics for the remaining author’s names (e.g., Hur et al., 1983).
