Introduction of Journal

International Journal of Costume and Fashion (IJCF), published biannually in every June and December since 2001, has been one of the representative academic journals of the Korean Society of Costume (KSC).

KSC established 1975 and is holding the International Costume Conference with scholars from Japan, Taiwan and South Korea under the name of International Society of Costume. This annual meeting is a specialized gathering for all those involved with 'Clothing and Fashion.’

IJCF addresses all aspects of costume (e.g., costume, marketing, design, materials, construction, and history). Academic, industrial, and multinational research findings are published through us. The Journal will carry and edit the following manuscripts:

1. Articles, study notes, and general descriptions of each field of costume

2. Contents published in lectures, seminars or scientific meetings hosted by the Society

The editorial board of IJCF aims to provide the highest possible standard of service to authors with the author-centered, prompt yet stringent reviewing process.

We give our deepest respect and every best wish for the success of your research, and we believe that publishing with IJCF will successfully help the exposure and the promotion of quality work.
