Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society China
CALL FOR ARTICLES
The Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society China publishes original research articles of up to 10,000 words (shorter articles are also welcome) on Chinese culture and society, past and present, with a focus on mainland China. Original articles, which will be peer-reviewed, must be previously unpublished, and make a contribution to the field. The Journal also publishes timely reviews of books on all aspects of Chinese history, culture and society.
The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2014.
All material should be submitted as an electronic attachment to the editor. A separate cover sheet should include the following:
§ Title of work
§ Contributor's name and contact information
§ Abstract of up to 300 words
For peer review, the main body of the text should not include the author's name. Text should be double-spaced, left-aligned, 12pt, in an easily read font such as Times New Roman, and paginated. The first line of paragraphs should be indented.
Illustrations should be high quality JPEG or TIFF files, and able to reproduce well in black and white. Authors are responsible for securing copyright permissions, and for any associated costs.
Submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail. Original articles that in the opinion of the editor make a significant contribution to the field will be sent to one independent peer reviewer. The Journal operates a "double-blind" system of review which means that neither the reviewer nor the writer is informed of the other's identity. Following peer review, an article may be accepted, accepted with revisions, or declined. Authors of accepted original articles will be sent a proof before publication. This is for final checking only, as no substantial revisions are possible at this stage.
The journal uses British English. For punctuation, vocabulary and Romanization of Chinese, please refer to the Hong Kong University Press Style Manual.
Notes should appear at the end of the article, and be formatted according to The Chicago Manual of Style. The notes and bibliography system, or the author-date system may be used according to whether your paper falls into the category of humanities, or physical/social sciences. A quick guide is available at http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html.
For archival sources, please follow the format requested by the repository.
Enquiries may be sent to the Honorary Journal Editor, Dr. Neil Schmid
