KEMANUSIAAN The Asian Journal of Humanities, formerly known as Jurnal Ilmu Kemanusiaan (Journal of Humanities) publishes theoretical and empirical writings on aspects of the humanities in Asia as well as those that are universally relevant and provide new knowledge to the broad area of the Humanities.

USM has extended content delivery format for its journals’ publication in print and PDF to include ePub, to address the growing need for more mobile accessibility.

KEMANUSIAAN The Asian Journal of Humanities welcomes contributions on critical issues of contemporary and historical significance in the areas of civilisation, history, goegraphy, language, literature, linguistics, philosophy, religion and related fields in the humanities, particularly in the Asian context. The journal also encourages contributions on issues in the humanities in non-Asian contexts that concern the relationships between the two regions.

KEMANUSIAAN The Asian Journal of Humanities is a peer-reviewed journal and it publishes articles, book reviews, research notes and theses abstracts.

    KEMANUSIAAN The Asian Journal of Humanities is a peer-reviewed journal. It publishes articles, book reviews, research notes and thesis abstracts covering aspects of the humanities in Asia. Whilst this is the focus, the journal also welcomes contributions covering aspects of the humanities that are universally relevant and provide new knowledge to the broad area of the Humanities. We also encourage submissions that deal with the humanities in non-Asian contexts particularly those that concern the relationships between the two areas.

    Submission: Manuscripts should be submitted through the online submission system, ScholarOne™ Manuscripts. Authors must first register at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/kajh. Please note that from 1st April 2011, only manuscripts submitted via the online submission system will be taken under consideration.

    If you have any enquiries please contact the Editor-in-Chief at kajh@usm.my

  • Language: The journal accepts manuscripts written in Malay or in English.

  • Manuscript: To facilitate the review process, we request that authors observe the following:
    • Only the top page of the manuscript carries the title of the article, name, institutional address and email of its author(s).
    • All manuscripts must be accompanied with a 200-word abstract and a list of 5 keywords/phrases.
    • Manuscripts written in Malay must include a Malay abstract, as well as abstract and title in English.
  • Font and spacing: Please use Times New Roman 12 and all submissions (articles/ book reviews/research notes, thesis abstracts) should be typed in double spacing (including notes and references).

Italicize non-English terms or phrases in manuscripts written in English and italicize non-Malay terms or phrases in manuscripts written in Malay. 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.

  • Notes: Notes should be kept to a minimum. Use endnotes, not footnotes. All notes should be numbered in sequence, typed in double spacing and placed at the end of the main text.
