The Korean Journal of Anesthesiology (Korean J Anesthesiol; KJA/ISSN: 2005-6419), an official journal of the Korean Society of Anesthesiologists, is an English-language, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles in the fields of anesthesiology, critical care, and pain medicine. KJA aims to publish high-quality clinical and scientific materials on all aspects of anesthesiology, critical care, and pain medicine. Its regional focus is mainly Korea, but it also welcomes submissions from researchers all over the world.

In addition to publishing original articles, KJA features reviews, editorials, case reports, and letters to the editor. KJA also features statistical rounds to provide its readers with educational fundamentals and practical implications for clinical and experimental statistics. Additionally, KJA gladly publishes negative results, which will benefit clinical practice and promote further research activity.

The primary considerations for publication are clarity, uniqueness, and advancement in design, performance, and knowledge.​
