Submission of manuscripts
The Editorial Board will consider a wide range of Asia-related items for publication, including academic papers, research reports and reviews. All academic items will be refereed. Manuscripts should be double spaced, proofread prior to submission, and submitted in electronic form as an email attachment (ideally in a version of Word). Submissions must include an abstract of about 100 words. Manuscripts should be between 5,000 and 10,000 words, inclusive of footnotes and abstract.
There is no particular house-style, but all papers are expected to be appropriately annotated and referenced. The substantive text of all items published will be in English but we encourage authors to include Asian scripts where appropriate (such as with names).
