The Korea Economic Institute (KEI) solicits proposals for original research on issues of current interest to serious Korea watchers.  Papers must be written exclusively for KEI, i.e., not have been presented or published previously in any form.

KEI has a variety of publications that vary in length from approximately 4,000 words to monographs of 50-75 pages. For all KEI publications, KEI will edit, publish, and distribute finished papers to over 5,000 government officials, think tank experts, and scholars around the United States and the world. In some cases, authors of papers selected by KEI will receive an honorarium for their work. Additionally, if warranted, KEI will arrange a mutually convenient date for each author to participate in a discussion in Washington with Korea analysts, government officials, and journalists of his/her selected paper at the KEI conference facilities in Washington, DC.

Interested authors should submit the following information:

  • Full Name
  • Academic/Institutional Affiliation
  • CV
  • Paper Topic Proposal, including paper's central questions and/or arguments, a discussion of why the subject matter is important for Korea watchers, and a proposed outline
  • Earliest/latest date paper can be available


KEI will inform the authors of the accepted paper topics as they are selected. Authors of papers scheduled for distribution will be later notified of the required submission dates.

Please submit your questions and/or proposals to
