Korean Council of Science Editors (KCSE) has decided to rename its original news journal Kwa Hak Pyeon Jib to Science Editing starting this year (2014), and to transform it into a new publication in English. This transformation better reflects the characteristics of the newly born academic journal. It is KCSE’s hope to promote the internationalization of and academic research through Science Editing. As president, I sincerely welcome such change and, at the same time, would like to thank editor, professor Kihong Kim, who has been leading this change.

KCSE hosted “Asian Science Editors’ Forum” on September 30, 2013. Although the invitation to foreigners was limited—since it was the first forum to be organized by us—representatives from other countries such as China, Japan, Indonesia, and England spared no effort to praise KCSE’s role and activities. Indeed, the sacrificial efforts of our executives have been well recognized internationally. Also, with the launch of the forum, I am motivated to establish a tentatively named, “Asian Association of Science Editors” in the near future.

The importance of publications by scientists is increasing globally, leading to an increase in competition and responsibilities. Today, the responsibilities of a science editor extend far beyond the technical editing of academic journals. They include quickly delivering accurate information and knowledge, resolving ethical issues relating to publication, utilizing new forms of information technology, protecting intellectual property rights, and attracting a wider range of readers. KCSE will continue to transform innovatively in order to respond to such demands and to keep pace with the changes. I hope that the newly published Science Editing which will be reborn thanks to the readers’ great interest and support, becomes a world-renowned academic journal.

I pray for your good health and prosperity.

Jung-Il Jin
President of KCSE
