Contributors should submit their articles either in hard copy (one copy) to the address above, or in an electronic format as a Microsoft Word file (via email to firstname.lastname@example.org). All submissions should follow the journal`s guidelines below and should be accompanied a submission form (also available below).
Language: The journal accepts manuscripts written in Malay/Bahasa Indonesia or in English. The author may use either English or American spelling preferences in English language submissions, provided that only one style is used (consistently) throughout the manuscript (exclusive of bibliography).
Manuscript: Articles should be no less than 6,000 words and no more than 8,000. Review articles should fall between 6000 and 7000 words. Book reviews should fall between 650 and 850 words. These figures include references, footnotes, and bibliography.
To facilitate the review process, the author`s details are not to be included in the manuscript. Please attach a separate page which carries the following information:
1. Name of the author(s)
2. Title of the article
3. Abstract of the article (150 words minimum - 200 words maximum)
4. Institutional address
5. Author(s) email(s)
6. 5 or 6 relevant keywords
7. A short biographical note (50 words max)
8. The exact length of the article
Articles and book reviews should be typed in double spacing (including notes and references). Articles that are written in Malay/Bahasa Indonesia should include an abstract and title in English, as well as Malay/Bahasa Indonesia.
Quotations: Quoted words, phrases and sentences should be enclosed in double quotation marks. Quotations within quotations should be enclosed in single quotation marks. Italicize non-English terms or phrases in manuscripts written in English, and italicize non-Malay terms or phrases in manuscripts written in Malay/Bahasa Indonesia. Quotations may be either run-in or, in the case of quotations which are four lines or longer, set off from the text as block quotations.
Table, Diagrams, and Maps: To facilitate the typesetting process, tables should be uploaded as separate files. Any diagrams or maps should be in .TIF or .JPG formats and submitted in separate individual files. These should be prepared in black and white. Tints should be avoided; use patterns instead.
References, Notes and Citations: Notes should be kept to a minimum. Use endnotes, not footnotes. All notes should be numbered in sequence 1, 2, 3…, and double spaced. In-text citation should be in the form of endnotes. It is the author`s responsibility to ensure the accuracy of the reference. For all articles, a list of references cited must be supplied at the end of the manuscript in the form of a bibliography. When the bibliography lists several works by the same author, his or her name should not be repeated.
