A Letter to the Editor generally takes one of the following forms:
- a substantial re-analysis of a previously published article in KSSTA or in another journal.
- an article that may not cover “standard research” but is of general interest to the broad readership of KSSTA.
- a brief report of research findings adequate for the journal’s scope and of particular interest to the community.
It is highly recommended to contact the editors before writing a letter to the editor. Letters to the editor with regards to published articles are sent to the authors of the article. Then, these have the chance to reply to it.
If the letter to the editor is published, is decided by the editorial board. Often letters to the editor are only sent to the authors for reply and are not published in KSSTA.
Length of article
Letters to the Editor should be between 300-800 words.
