Publishing Author Names in Native Languages

Publish your name in your native language, alongside the English version of your name, in the author list of your article. 

The guidelines below are for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters. All other native language names should be submitted via Unicode characters. In your article’s cover letter, indicate that the article includes author names in native languages.

Be sure to carefully check the rendering of your name in your article during the proof stage before article publication.

Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters

The following font styles will be used when rendering Chinese, Japanese, or Korean characters in the final publication. Use the appropriate font for your native language to avoid potential errors.

  • Simplified Chinese: SongMT
  • Traditional Chinese: SungMT
  • Japanese: MS Mincho
  • Korean: Batang

Microsoft Word

Use Word’s Insert Symbols feature to add the correct characters in parentheses after the name of each author who would like to have their name shown in their native language. Use the standard font listed above to ensure accuracy.


Provide the CJK Ascii Unicode for Chinese (traditional or simplified), Japanese, or Korean.
