Your guide in your studies about North and South Korea

Information about the Korea Guide

In this guide you find information concerning North and South Korea. We have collected the main information you need in research in your Korea Studies. NOTE! Due to the situation in North Korea we ask you to be extra concerned about source criticism! We have chosen to link  to more controversial web pages which means you have to compare and evaluate yourself.

You can access the journals from almost anywhere in the world if you are a student or employee at the Lund University. Log in with your Lucat or student ID. NOTE This does not apply to Korea Journal two latest issues. To reach these you have to be at the Asia Library and contact the librarians.

If you know any links we should add, or see any broken links, please inform the librarians at the Asia Library.
