Detailed Submission Guidelines for the Journal of East Asian Affairs
Submissions should be manuscripts that have not been published previously and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The manuscript should be more than 20 and no longer than 45 pages (5,000 ~ 11,000 words), including an abstract of less 150-200 words, 3-5 keywords, footnotes, references, tables, figures, charts, and appendices. The page-size guideline is based on standard U.S. 8.5 x 11 inch paper. All material should be 11-point type, double-spaced with outside margins of one inch using Microsoft Word.
Once a manuscript is formally accepted, authors will be asked to make additional revisions and to submit a final version via digital file. They will be required to assign the copyright for their article to the Institute for National Security Strategy. The copyright assignment is a condition of publication.
Consult the Chicago Manual of Style, 14th edition if you are in doubt about stylistic issues.
For the convenience of the blind review, place the title of the manuscript, names, affiliations, mailing addresses, voice and fax phone numbers, and email addresses on a separate page. If an article has more than one author, please designate one as the primary contact.
Authors of articles should include a biographical sketch of 200 words (on a separate page, at the beginning of the manuscript), briefly providing information about their names, degree, educational background, position, organization, summary of publications, and professional interests.
* Example of Bio Statement: Alexander J. Groth, Ph.D. (Columbia University), is a research professor at the University of California, Davis, where he has taught comparative politics since 1962. He is the author and co-author of over one hundred scholarly articles and monographs, and author or editor of twelve books including Comparative Politics: A Distributive Approach (1971); Comparative Resource Allocation (1984); and Revolution and Political Change (1996). His research interests are focused on issues of political stability and comparative public policy.
An abstract of 150-200 words should appear on a separate page. The abstract should include the central question addressed by the article and the author's findings and conclusions. Please list 3-5 keywords at the end of your abstract.
Tables, Figures, Charts, Appendices
Tables, figures, charts, and appendices should be kept to a minimum. Please do not use heavy borders or shading. If the table, figure, or chart requires fill effects, please use patterns, NOT shading. Each table or figure should be in the text, NOT on a separate page at the end of the manuscript.
Quoted matter that runs 3 or more typed lines or that involves more than one paragraph should be set off from the text without quotation marks and set in 11-point type. Shorter quotations are usually run into the text in the same type and enclosed in quotation marks.
Article Title and Section Headings
The guidelines for article titles and section headings are as follows (please do not underline): Article title and principal subheadings: 14-point type, Times New Roman, bold, and set on a line separate from the text.
Do not italicize a foreign word or phrase that can be found as a regular entry in the dictionary (for example, “laissez faire”). Italicize names of books, newspapers, and journals. Do not underline them.
Numbers from one to nine should be spelled out; the number 10 up to numbers in the thousands should be written as digits. Numbers in the millions and above should use a combination of digits and the appropriate word. Use digits for percentages (for instance, 9 percent).
Citing Works within the Text
To cite works you used in developing your article, use a parenthetical-reference system (also called the author-date system). For each work to which you refer, supply the author's surname, date of publication, and page numbers (Please note, no comma between author and date).
* For example:
If you refer to an author in the text, the publication date and page numbers are a sufficient reference.
* For example:
If a work has more than three authors, use the name of the first author followed by et al.
* For example:
If you cite more than one work by the same author produced in the same year, distinguish among the works with an alphabetical identifier after the date.
* For example:
If you cite an electronic source, include the author's last name (or file name if author's name is not available [for example, cgos.html]) and the date of publication or last revision (or date accessed if publication date is not available).
Please DO NOT use endnotes. Use footnotes to elaborate or comment on material in the text and place them at the end of the text. Footnotes should be 9-point type, Times New Roman, and set on a line separate from the text.
Prepare a list of all the works you cite in the text and arrange them alphabetically by author (please include only the works that are cited in the text). If you cite more than one work by the same author, arrange them by the year of publication in ascending order (earliest to latest). If you cite more than one work by the same author published in the same year, arrange them alphabetically by title and differentiate among them by putting a letter after the year of publication. For clarification, please refer to the Chicago Manual of Style. Examples of some of the more common reference list entries are as follows:
* Book, single author:
* Book, multiple authors:
* Book, edited:
* Chapter or selection in an edited book:
* Journal Article:
* Newspaper Article:
* Works in Languages Other than English:
* Papers Presented at Meetings, Conferences, etc.:
* Electronic Sources:
