        Guidelines for Authors


Authors are invited to contribute articles to Asian Musicology.  The following are general guidelines for those submitting articles to be considered for publication in Asian Musicology:


1. Text

Manuscripts are to be submitted to the editor, who reserves the right to have them refereed by specialists and to copy-edit them in cooperation with the author.  Only research data not published elsewhere will be accepted for publication in the journal.  An article generally contains between 10 and 24 printed pages, which includes an abstract, pictures/illustrations/musical examples and captions, footnotes, and bibliography.


Please submit final manuscripts by E-mail peacemusic@gmail.com


The journal publisher has its own formatting template, so manuscripts should be kept simple: no special fonts (even for titles or headings) and special markings should only be in italics (for foreign words) and bold print, where necessary.


2. Illustrations

Authors are encouraged to submit photographs (black-and-white, or color with good contrast), slides, diagrams, illustrations, and musical examples.  Such illustrative material should be submitted in camera-ready form with captions and credits provided.  Please write the number and caption on the back of each item.


3. Footnotes and References

Footnotes appear at the bottom of each page. Do not use full bibliographic references within the text, footnotes, or captions, but refer simply to the author, year of publication, and when appropriate, page numbers (e.g. Chun 2002:109).


Complete bibliographical information should be placed separately under “References.”
