  • Author Guidelines
  • Asian Perspectives welcomes articles on the archaeology and prehistory of Asia and the Pacific region. The Editors also consider papers on ethnoarchaeological subjects, prehistorical linguistic reconstruction, historical analyses relevant to archaeological debates, and physical anthropology and ethnography of use to the prehistorian. The Editors welcome suggestions for special issues devoted to particular theoretical topics, methodological approaches, or regions within Asia and the Pacific.

    Asian Perspectives is normally published semi-annually.

    All submissions are handled electronically – online at http://asianperspectives.msubmit.net 

    You may contact staff for help with the online submission system at apjastf@hawaii.edu.

    For initial queries or special issue proposals, email the Editors at: apjaeds@hawaii.edu.

    Peer review

    All research articles, whether submitted by individuals or as part of a special issue proposal, are peer-reviewed by at least two suitable specialists. The peer review process generally takes 4-6 weeks from date of first submission.

    Book reviews and comments do not undergo the peer review process. Their acceptance for publication is at the discretion of the Editors.

    Costs

    Submission and publication is normally free to contributors. Authors may be asked to contribute to production costs if their articles are exceptionally long (over 10,000 words) or include more than 15 figures. Since Asian Perspectives is printed in black and white, authors must be able to obtain subvention or cover production costs out of pocket if they wish to have color plates inserted.

    Contributors who are not fluent in written, academic English are asked to have their work edited before submission by an independent copy-editor at their own cost. Having your manuscript independently edited does not guarantee that it will be accepted for publication, however. The Editors may also require that you have your text copy-edited after revisions following acceptance for publication. 

    Permissions and Copyright

    All images and data published in AP should include source attributions unless they are the contributor’s original creations. The UHP publication agreement used by AP has the contributor warranty that “the Contribution contains no material that infringes or violates any intellectual property or contractual rights of others.”. Contributors who want to include in their figures a map, photograph, or any other image that is not their own original creation need to research and obtain written permission to use the image. You are responsible for paying any fees that accompany the permission to reproduce.

    Authors should acquire permissions before submitting their manuscript to the co-editors. Keep them on record in case you are asked for them by the editors. If you cannot provide permissions or a reasonable explanation for why you do not need them, the questionable images will be pulled from the article or the article will be rejected for publication until permissions are granted.

    Contributors retain copyright of their contributions, but are asked not to post them anywhere on-line for six months after publication in AP.

    Proofs and Copies

    Authors will be sent galley proofs for correction before publication. Extensive changes to proofs may be charged to authors. Lead authors are provided with one print copy of the issue in which their publication appears. We no longer provide offprints, but all co-authors are sent a pdf of their contribution as published online at MUSE.

    Types of manuscripts and length limits

    Asian Perspectives regularly publishes Research Articles and Book Reviews. Comments on past articles are occasionally published. The Editors also accept proposals for Special Issues.

    Article Length

    Research articles generally range in length between 6,000-10,000 words including references and endnotes. The Editors accept proposals for longer articles synthesizing work on important topics in Asian or Pacific archaeology that have seen little previous publication in English. Contact the Editors with a proposal before submitting a longer article.

    Articles should include no more than 12-15 figures and 6 tables. Related images should be consolidated into as small a number of figures as possible. All figures (constituted of photographs, maps, drawings, charts, etc.) and tables must be directly relevant to the article and discussed in the text. Do not include figures or charts that do not contribute to and support the content of the text. In other words, if all the information supplied by an image could be summed up in a single sentence, then write the sentence and don’t include an image.

    Note that all illustrations will be published in greyscale. Do not include color photographs or pointers or lines in charts or maps.

    Tables should fit onto a single page. Instead of including more extensive tables, authors should cite the location of larger data sets in already published works, on-line, or in data repositories at the author’s institution.

    Please contact the Editors if special circumstances require insertion of more figures and tables or longer tables into your article. Again note that you may be asked to contribute to production costs for exceptionally lengthy articles or large numbers of figures and tables.

    Book review length

    Reviews of single books are limited to 2,000 words. Review essays discussing more than one book can be up to 5,000 words long.

    Comment length

    Scholarly comments on articles previously published in AP are limited to 800 words.  Comments should add significant viewpoints to issues in Asia and Pacific archaeology.

    Special issue length

    Special issue editors must keep their proposed issue within the journal’s standard page length or provide subvention to cover the cost of additional pages. To keep within budget, the maximum page limit for a special issue is 525 pages of text, figures, and tables. (This would produce approximately 350 print pages, which is the maximum for an issue of AP.)

    To estimate page totals, allot 1 page for each figure, each table, and each 250 words of text (including references and endnotes). Thus, a paper with a word-count of 8,000 (= 32 pages), 8 figures, and 2 tables would add up to approximately 42 pages.  We also ask that special issue editors factor in a brief (<10 pages or 2500 words) introduction into the total page estimate.

    How special issue editors divide up the number of papers and the page limits per article is up to them. Special issue editors do not have to abide by the 10,000 word limit for single, independently-submitted, articles.

    Since subvention costs fluctuate, consult with the journal’s Editors to make arrangements if you anticipate that your special issue will exceed the journal’s page limits or you want to include color plates.

    Submissions

    Before submitting a manuscript, query the Editors about the suitability of the potential contribution for publication in AP by emailing apjaeds@hawaii.edu.

    Having received an affirmative response, register for a user account and submit your manuscript online at: https://asianperspectives.msubmit.net/cgi-bin/main.plex.

    Click on For Authors on the submission system for detailed registration and submission instructions.

    Before starting the submission process, make sure you have formatted the text, references, figures, and tables following the Asian Perspectives Style Guide.

    Gather all the required contact information and pertinent manuscript files listed below.

    • Author(s) Contact Information
      -Full Names (given and family names) of all co-authors
      -Email Addresses for ALL co-authors (so they may be sent the digital  version of their manuscript once it has been published)
      -Postal Address for Lead/First Author (for mailing the print copy of the issue in which the manuscript is published)
      -Work Telephone Number for Corresponding author (usually the Submitting author)
    • Cover Letter (including the job title, institutional affiliation, and email address for all co-authors)
    • Contact information (e-mail address and institutional affiliation) for 3-5 preferred Peer Reviewers
    • Title of Manuscript
    • Abstract
    • Manuscript text files –  best submitted in MSWord (doc. or .docx) formats. (Make sure “Language” is set to “English (U.S.)” via Tools->Language->Set Language).  Manuscript files can also be submitted in WordPerfect (.wpd), Open Office (.odt, .swx, etc.), plain text (.txt), or rich text format (.rtf).   DO NOT submit text files as pdfs.
    • Captions file – a separate text document listing the captions for all the figures and tables (will be submitted as ‘supplementary material’).
    • Tables – each should be submitted separately and in its original editable format such as WORD (.doc or .docx) or EXCEL (.xls, xlsx).  DO NOT submit tables as fixed images in formats such as jpg, tiff, eps, or pdf.
    • Figures/Images –Each figure image (i.e., line drawings, photographs, maps, graphs, charts) will be uploaded separately to the system. All images should be prepared in greyscale (not color) as the the print version of Asian Perspectives is published in black and white. Images must be submitted in JPG, TIFF, or EPS formats. DO NOT embed images into any of the text files or submit images in pdf, ppt or any other highly compressed formats.

     

    Note: Never upload pdfs to the system. The system will convert your text, image, and table files into pdfs, which you will then be asked to approve in order to complete your submission.

    If your manuscript is accepted for publication, you may be asked to prepare larger and higher-resolution figures suitable for print publication. Each photograph, line drawing, or graph must be a minimum  1200 x 1200 pixels (4”x 4”) in size and minimum 300 dpi resolution; larger images at higher resolutions (600-1000 dpi) are better for line art and required for composite figures (consisting of 2 or more drawings, photos, etc.). Although high resolution image file formats such as .tif, .jpg, or .eps are fine, provide native (original) image files created in Photoshop (.psd) or Illustrator (.ai) when possible.

    You have the option of uploading color versions of figures for digital publication. Each color image must be otherwise identical to the black and white figures intended for print publication.

    General Style Guide

    AP’s readership is highly varied, so authors should avoid using specialized or overly technical language unless absolutely required. All articles are published in English. We allow judicious use of non-English characters in the manuscript provided they are accompanied by English translations. All foreign words and terms, including place names, should be spelled with appropriate diacritical marks (e.g., glottal stop, macron). Authors are responsible for the accuracy of diacritics and characters.

    Manuscripts should follow the style guidelines outlined below; those that do not may be returned for revision before review. AP’s style generally conforms to specifications set forth for scientific publications in the  Chicago Manual of Style, Sixteenth Edition (Chicago and London, The University of Chicago Press, 2010).  Documenting sources follows the author-date system in Chapter 15. Spelling generally follows Webster’s Third New International Dictionary of the English Language, Unabridged. 

    Format

    All manuscripts should be submitted in English, with the text double-spaced, in a standard 12-point font.

    Margins should be 1” all round.

    Text should be justified left. Do not justify the right margin.

    Do not insert running headers or page numbers in the headers and footers.

    Use endnotes instead of footnotes in the text.

    Keep formatting to a minimum; do not attempt to make the manuscript resemble print issues of AP. Do not use the spacebar to indent paragraphs.  Either use the tab key or change the format of paragraphs using the style function in your software program. Do not use returns within paragraphs. Do not add extra lines of space between paragraphs. Do not add hyphens to break words at the end of lines.

    Headings should be in Title or Sentence style. Center headings and subheadings. Do not change font styles, sizes, or colors and do not use underscoring, bold-face, or small caps for headings and subheadings.

    Italics are usually reserved for non-English terms and titles of books and journals in the References Cited. Avoid using italics, bold-face, or underscoring functions to highlight or emphasize words in the text or data in tables.

    Do not insert bullet points or have your word processing software automatically format lists.

    Do not embed hyperlinks to external sources or internal links to figures, tables, or captions.

    Add only one space after a period or semicolon.

    Numbers. Spell out numbers from one to ten, except for decimals, fractions, and when used with units of measure. Use numerals for numbers above ten. Write out ordinal numbers (e.g., nineteenth century).

    Type the numeral “1” for one (never the small letter “l”) and the numeral”0″ for zero (never the letter “O”).

    Do not use a comma for four-digit numbers (e.g., 1000), but do use for five and more digit numbers (e.g., 10,000).

    Repeat all digits in ranges (e.g., 257-269 NOT 257-69).

    Measurements. Use metric measurements for distance and volume measures. Abbreviate measures when preceded by a quantity but do not follow by a period (e.g., 4 cm).

    Dates. Use capitals for alphas in dates, (e.g., A.D. or B.C.) Express 14C dates as conventional or calibrated dates. Calibrated dates should employ the most recent procedures as published in the journal Radiocarbon.

    Citations and References

    Author-Date Citations

    Cite references by author, date, and where appropriate, page numbers. Page numbers follow the colon with no space.

    Do not insert a comma between author name and year.

    Use ‘and’ (not ampersand ‘&’) when citing sources with two authors.

    Use ‘et al.’  (no italics) when citing sources with more than two authors.

    Citations following quoted text must include the page number of the text quoted.  The citation comes after the closing quotation marks, before the final period.

    Page citations should be as specific as possible. Do not include broad page ranges in citations (i.e., for a whole journal article or chapter in a book).

    Two or more citations by the same author(s) are arranged chronologically and separated by commas. Distinguish multiple citations by the same author in the same year by alpha in italics (Smith 2008a, 2008b) and make sure they match the references.

    Separate citations by different authors using semicolons. Arrange alphabetically by author’s family names.

    Unauthored sources are cited by the institutions or organizations that produced the text.  Long institutional names should be shortened to a few words or acronyms.

    Examples:

    Griffin and Solheim (1990) discuss Agta hunter-gatherers in the Philippines.

    Fortified sites have been located in the Phimai region of Thailand (Welch and McNeil 1990).

    People relate historical narratives to construct “a meaningful universe” for their collective membership (Friedman 1992:837).

    Landscape “is one of the central elements in a cultural system, for as an ordered assemblage of objects, a text, it acts as a signifying system through which a social system is communicated, reproduced, experienced and explored” (Duncan 1990:183-184).

    A previous report identified brick shrines in the area (CMDNST 1985).

    Archaeologists found ritual deposits in the area (Chengdu and Beijing 2002; Chengdu Institute 2006;  Zhu et al. 2003).

    Similar artifacts have been found at other sites in the region (Barrera 1972; Brumfiel and Earle 1987; Emory et al. 1969; Li 1988, 1989; Welsch 1989a, 1989b, 2009; Welsch et al. in press).

    References Cited

    All citations in the main text and endnotes and source citations in table and figure captions must have a corresponding complete reference in the References Cited list. 

    Also, every reference listed must be cited somewhere in the manuscript.  

    As much publication information as is available should be supplied for electronic sources and images in the public domain (i.e., on-line journal articles, governmental and museum archives on dedicated websites, satellite base maps, etc.).  Simply supplying an URL is insufficient.

    List references in alphabetical order by name of first author.

    Write out the given names of authors as they appear in the original reference (i.e., don’t abbreviate given names to initials unless that is how they appeared in the publication).

    List first or only author by family name followed by a comma and given name, and any middle initials.  If the first author’s name is listed in the original publication with the family name to the left of the given name (as is standard in many parts of Asia), don’t insert a comma between the family name and given name.

    Cite all subsequent authors by given name, middle initial, and family name (again unless their names were published family name first).  

    Do not list multi-authored works with only the first author’s name followed by et al. in the references.

    Group multiple publications by same author(s) in chronological order.

    Italicize journal titles or book titles. If publication is part of a monograph series, italicize the title of the monographic work.

    Although this is not required, it is helpful to provide English translations for titles of works and institutions (that are standing in for authors) when the original references were not published in English.  Translations should be in square brackets.  Also provide complete institutional titles in square brackets following the short form or acronym under which they were cited.
