Because Korea proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation association relies on the generosity of scholars who contribute their time to review articles, we ask that authors not submit their work to other journals at the same time. By using computer technology throughout, we expect that the review process will move quickly and that authors will be notified in a reasonable time. In sending work to Korea proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation association for possible publication, the submitter attests that the work is original and that he or she is the author, that it has not been published, and that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.





Our submission guidelines have been carefully prepared to facilitate the editorial process of publishing articles online. Strict adherence to formatting guidelines (described below) has three purposes. First, consistent and uniform formatting allows the editors and reviewers to concentrate on the content of articles submitted. Second, it allows for reliable translation of authors' formatting to the web page. The third consideration is both aesthetic and practical: multiple stylistic formats are ugly and distracting on a web page and interfere with reading.
