Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- No more than 7,500 words or about 25 pages, double spaced, 12 point type for each article including footnotes, references and monotone pictures. Quotations of more than four lines should be indented. Please note that the use of special fonts and diacritics is acceptable, but may need consultation with the author for correct presentation. Figures, photos and illustrations that enhance the text are encouraged. All figures, etc. to be included should be accompanied by a short caption briefly describing the figure. Please note that unless special arrangements are made, any figures, etc. submitted will not be returned. The journal has a limit in printing full color pictures, so figures should be changed into monotone before submission. If full color is necessary and will impact an understanding of the article, not more than two A5 pages will be considered for each article.
- Articles should be accompanied by a short abstract and a brief one-sentence biography of the author.
- Citations to works referenced in the text should be set forth at the bottom of the page in consecutively numbered footnotes throughout the article and should use the following style: Author, shortened title, page. For example: 1. Richman, Many Ramayanas, 10. A list of references should be included at the end of the article with full bibliographical entries following the Chicago style. For example: Richman, Paula, ed. Many Ramayanas, The Diversity of a Narrative Tradition in South Asia. Berkeley: U of California P, 1991.
References to titles written in a foreign language should provide a Romanized version of the author’s name, followed by the name in the foreign language script, if possible; the title in the foreign language script, if possible, followed by an English translation of the title with Romanization as necessary for names and other words. For reference to works in Thai, the date of publication should be the Thai year with the Common Era year in brackets; publication information can be presented either in Thai or English. Romanization is not necessary, but can be provided, if desired, following the system of the Royal Institute. For example: Boonyong Ketthet [บุญยงค์ เกศเทศ]. เลาะลุ่มน้ำโลหิต เลียบชีวิตไทคำตี่ (AlongLohitRiver, An Observation on Khamti Life). กรุงเทพฯ: แม่คำผาง, 2546 . (In Thai).
