We are delighted to present this year’s fair of KSEF, a collection of students-created works showcasing the wonderful breadth of academic curiosity! Founded upon the basis of adventurous thinking and questioning, The KSEF hopes to foster a creative spirit in many fields of learning.
It is an honor to receive such a number of insightful and thought-provoking pieces from the exceptional minds of high school and undergraduate students. Your submissions are reviewed thoroughly and held to an incredibly high standard; KSEF considers work that is not only well-composed, but also ambitious and representative of unbridled academic thinking. Showcased in this issue are essays from both the US and abroad that incorporate many disciplines of academic research, ranging from natural sciences to business and economics. Each piece embodies the diligence of the innovative authors that dedicate themselves to scholarship and exploration.
The KSEF aims to highlight the incredible capability of students and encourage an unconventional, explorative approach to learning. As you read this issue of KSEF, consider the privilege of gleaning wisdom from carefully conducted academic research as well as the enthusiastic dedication of all the young, yet incredibly knowledgeable contributors. When compiling this issue, the editors at KSEF truly valued the enriching information presented in the impressive student-written pieces; we hope you have a similar experience that may even inspire you to be featured in the journal in the future!
Lastly, we would like to express gratitude towards the Managing Editors and the KSEF Editorial Board members for their dedication; the large group of reviewers demonstrated exceptional diligence and enthusiasm while creating this issue. The editors contribute not only their insight but also their time. KSEF would not succeed without their continuing support.
Thank you for all of your continued interest and support. It has been an honor to serve as the Editor-in-Chief of the KSEF, we are thrilled to provide these fresh perspectives on research to our readers and hope to continue to put our fresh ideas and passions in future journals.

KSEF, hosted and managed by Seoul National University, Havard university and other school's faculties and alumni, seeks to publish the best and most innovative scholarly manuscripts and study via online and presentation meetings.
KSEF invites the submission of innovative proposals for symposia and special issues on international relations defined broadly. A symposium consists of two to five articles on a common subject, published as a set in the same issue. Papers submitted together for consideration as a symposium are all judged by the same referees. Special issues, in contrast, are designed and edited by guest editors and include an introductory or concluding essay written by the editors. The goals of a special issue are to focus attention on promising ideas and important subjects in international relations defined broadly, and to advance the critique and development of economic or political theory in some way.
Proposals are submitted to the editors and should include the following elements:
KSEF publishes high-quality review essays that survey new developments in a particular area of study, synthesize important ideas, and raise key issues for future scholarship. Review essays might be based on books but could also draw on scholarship that has been published in articles. Prospective authors can either submit the entire manuscript for review or they can submit a ten-page, double-spaced proposal detailing the body of research to be covered and the main themes to be explored. Promising proposals will be sent to two referees. On the basis of their reviews, which will be sent anonymously to the author, the editors will write a decision letter. The final manuscript may be sent back to the same referees or reviewed by the editorial team.
