Submission of Manuscripts

Guidelines for Submission of Manuscripts to the Journal of Australian Studies published by the Australian Studies Association of Japan

1 The journal is published once or twice a year. The journal publishes three types of manuscripts - articles, research notes and book reviews. Research notes differ from articles in that they tend to have a narrower focus, tend to have a more restricted audience. The editorial board may recommend that a manuscript be published as a research note rather than an article.

2 Manuscripts, which may be submitted for review either in Japanese or in English, will be accepted only from current members of the association, and cannot have been published or accepted for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts are continuously accepted; however, a manuscript must be submitted no later than 31st August if it is to be published the following year.
Only members of the association may be the main authors of an article; non-members may be included as co-authors.

3 Articles and research notes written in Japanese must not exceed 28,380 characters and must take up no more than 15 pages, inclusive of figures, tables and English synopsis. Book reviews written in Japanese must not exceed 5,676 characters and must not take up more than 3 pages. Articles and research notes written in English must not exceed 30 pages, double-spaced, on A4 paper. The pages should contain 29 lines of text with 10 to 15 words per line. Authors whose native language is not English must have their manuscript checked by a competent native speaker of English and include evidence of its review when the manuscript is submitted.

4 Diagrams and tables should be submitted in camera-ready form on a separate sheet paper with their position in the text indicated in red.

5 An article, whether in Japanese or English, must be accompanied by a summary in English not exceeding 400 words including the title, author's name and affiliation. The summary will be placed on the website of the association. The editorial board reserves the right to edit the summary.

6 Paragraphs should be numbered as 1, 1), and ①; charts and diagrams should be numbered as Chart 1, Diagram 1.

7 Reference notes should be noted in the text by a superscript number enclosed in parentheses (1) and the references placed at the end of the manuscript.

8 Works cited should be placed at the end of the article and should be written, in any languages, as follows: Author, title of book, (name of series), publisher, year of publication (Christian era), page(s) cited.
Author, title of article, name of journal, volume, month and year of publication (Christian era), page(s) cited.
Please consult the editorial board for the proper citation of other types of references.

9 Manuscripts must be accompanied by a cover letter which includes the title of the manuscript, the authors' names, and the institution and department with which they are affiliated. The letter should also include their contact address, phone number and e-mail address, and be sent as an attachment to the designated email address. English titles may be changed by the editorial board.

10 Acceptance or rejection of the manuscript will be determined by the editorial board and submitters will be notified accordingly.

11 Authors will customarily receive the first proof of their article.

12 If off-prints are desired, the editorial board should be notified at the first proof. (A charge applies for off-prints).

13 The above guidelines apply to manuscripts submitted for publication. Commissioned manuscripts may be written differently.

14 Fees will not be paid for submitted manuscripts nor for commissioned manuscripts.

15 Articles, research notes and book reviews will be digitalised and redesigned to view on the website of J-STAGE. Articles, research notes and book reviews appearing in any new issue will be added to the website a year after the issue is published.

16 PDF files will be sent to the authors by the printer.
