The International Area Studies Review (Publisher: President Park Chul) published by the HUFS Center for International Area Studies (Director: Prof. Jung Kyung-won) has been indexed in SCOPUS, a renowned international database of journals, since March this year.
This is considered the first important result since the launch of a project at the end of 2010 to build international interest in academic journals published by HUFS.
IASR is preparing to apply to be indexed in SSCI in January next year and is expected to become an SCI-indexed journal within 2014. IASR is published jointly by HUFS and the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) through SAGE Publications of the U.K. and is distributed worldwide. It is expected to become a major international academic journal both in name and reality.
