Korea Focus: A Source of Current Information about Korean Affairs

Korea Focus, a main­stay jour­nal of the Korea Foun­da­tion, is a use­ful source of cur­rent infor­ma­tion and research relat­ed to Korea. Each issue includes trans­la­tions of news­pa­per edi­to­ri­als and columns, as well as schol­ar­ly essays on Korea’s pol­i­tics, for­eign rela­tions, inter-Kore­an issues, econ­o­my, soci­ety, and cul­ture. These arti­cles, care­ful­ly select­ed from lead­ing news­pa­pers and aca­d­e­m­ic jour­nals, rep­re­sent the views of opin­ion lead­ers of Kore­an soci­ety, with regard to issues of vital con­cern, domes­ti­cal­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly.

Korea Focus is now avail­able as a month­ly webzine at http://www.koreafocus.or.kr while the quar­ter­ly print edi­tion con­tin­ues to be dis­trib­uted to aca­d­e­m­ic insti­tu­tions, indi­vid­ual researchers, gov­ern­ment agen­cies, and rel­e­vant pub­lic and pri­vate orga­ni­za­tions in some 130 coun­tries with empha­sis on areas where on-line com­mu­ni­ca­tion might not be read­i­ly acces­si­ble. The on-line edi­tion offers month­ly e-mail ser­vices to reg­u­lar read­ers through a sim­ple reg­is­tra­tion of an e-mail address.

Copies of the print edi­tion of Korea Focus are avail­able in the Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies library.

As a non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion affil­i­at­ed with Korea’s Min­istry of For­eign Affairs and Trade, the Korea Foun­da­tion is ded­i­cat­ed to the pro­mo­tion of glob­al under­stand­ing about Korea, in an effort to enhance the coop­er­a­tive rela­tions of the inter­na­tion­al com­mu­ni­ty.
