Manuscripts Manuscripts include reviews and survey articles. The manuscripts submitted for publication must contain no materials that violate any copyright or other personal or proprietary right of any person or entity.

Submission of Manuscript FSI operates an on-line submission system. Details of how to submit online and full author instructions can be found at: http://www.kosfost.or.kr.

Instructions for Manuscript Preparation


Manuscript Format for Research Articles Manuscripts must be double-spaced with a recent version of word processor. All pages must be numbered consecutively starting with the title page and including tables and figures. Lines in the abstract and text should be consecutively numbered in a separate column at the left. A standard font, in a size of 10-12 points, must be used. Use 2 commas in a series of 3 items (A, B, and C).
Abbreviations must not be used at first use in the text. Spell out the word(s) at first use and give the abbreviation in parentheses. Abbreviate ‘equation’ or ‘figure’ only if you are using the word with a figure number. Do not abbreviate if ‘Equation’ or ‘Figure’ begins the sentence, even if you are using the word with an equation number or a figure number. If citing more than one equation or figure, do not make the abbreviation plural (for example, ‘Eq. 1 and 2’ or ‘Fig. 1 and 2’ is correct).

The manuscript should be assembled in the following sequence:

  • Title and Authorship (single page)
  • Abstract and Keywords (single page)
  • Introduction
  • Body
  • Conclusions
  • Acknowledgments
  • References
  • Appendix
  • Figure Captions
  • Tables (one table per page)
  • Figures (one figure per page)

1. Title page (p. 1)

The title page should include the title, full names, institutional affiliations with mailing addresses including city name (in case of small cities), province name, postal code, country name of all authors, short version of title (less than 50 letters and spaces), and names and contact information of 4 suggested reviewers.
If the affiliations of the authors are different, authors different from the first author should be marked with superscript numeral designation.

The name of the corresponding author to whom inquiries about the paper should be addressed must be marked with an asterisk and provide the telephone and fax numbers and e-mail address. If the current address of any author is different, include it in a footnote on the title page.

2. Abstract page (p. 2)

The abstract should be a clear, concise, one-paragraph summary giving what was done, how it was done, significant results, and major conclusions. Do not use such statements starting ‘I~’ or ‘We~’ or ‘Results are discussed’. Abstract must be 150 words or less. List 5 keywords for indexing purposes.

3. Introduction (starting on p. 3)

Introduction should include a brief review of pertinent work citing key references, and objectives of the work. Text that does not exceed 2 typed pages is recommended.

4. Body

Present and discuss body concisely, using tables and figures, comparing with previous work. Do not present the same information in tables and figures. Avoid comparisons or contrasts that are not pertinent and avoid speculation unsupported by the data obtained.
Tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals and should be grouped at the end of the manuscript. Footnotes in tables should be given numeral designations and be cited in the table by superscript. The sequence of numerals should proceed by row. Tables with only a few values should be written into the text.
Do not include data that are not discussed in the text. Round off numbers to significant digits.
Figures should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals and should be grouped at the end of the manuscript.

5. Conclusions

Conclusion should include a brief summary of pertinent work. Text that does not exceed 2 typed pages is recommended.

6. Acknowledgments

List sources of financial or material support and the names of individuals whose contributions were significant but not deserving of authorship.

7. References

Reference list should be ordered alphabetically by the last name of the first author. Order multi-author publications of the same first author alphabetically with respect to second, third, etc. author. Publications of the same authors must be ordered chronologically. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of their references.
References format is described below.

8. Appendix

Complicated calculations and detailed nomenclature are listed.

Formatting References References should be cited only necessary publications and used primary rather than secondary references when possible.
It is acceptable to cite work that is accepted but not published with the pertinent year and volume number of the reference. Works that are 'submitted', 'unpublished', and 'personal communications' are not accepted.
The Journal titles must be abbreviated according to ISI Journal Abbreviation Index.
Reference list should be ordered alphabetically by the last name of the first author. Order multi-author publications of the same first author alphabetically with respect to second, third, etc. author. Publications of the same authors must be ordered chronologically.

Units of measurement FSI uses the SI system (often referred to International Units) for most units of measurement. Some exceptions are listed below. Commonly used empirical units are permissible.
cal = calorie
kcal = kilocalorie
cm = centimeter
cp = centipoise
s = second
min = minute
h = hour
L = liter
g = gram
M = molar
mol = mole
N = normal
% = percent (designate w/v, v/v or w/w in lower case)
ppm = part per million
ppb = part per billion
oBx = Brix
Da = Dalton
CFU = colony forming unit
Mw = molecular weight
Aw = water activity

Never use a plural form for the symbols; for example, 30 kgs would be incorrect. Give a space between measurement and number (for example, 25 mm) but no space between number and degree sign (for example, 25oC) and % sign (for example, 35%). The range is formatted as 0.3-0.9 g.
