Editor in Chief's Greeting

Welcome to the homepage for the Journal of Territorial and Maritime Studies.  JTMS is an interdisciplinary journal covering a broad range of fields such as geography, history, political science, international relations, and regional studies to name but a few.  As a peer reviewed journal, the editorial team is committed to the quality of JTMS and to advancing the academic discussion of the fields within the journal's scope. 

Yonsei University is proud to take over the editorship of JTMS and we are excited about the bright future we believe JTMS has.  Of course, this cannot be done simply by the editorial staff and publisher alone.  It takes dedicated authors, peer reviewers, and readers to make a journal successful.  I invite all researchers to join us on that journey and, with your help, I am certain we can take JTMS to new heights.
