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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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).
Length: Manuscripts should be 20-30 pages long (double-spaced).
Quotations: Quoted words, phrases and sentences should be enclosed in double quotation marks. Quotations within quotations and glosses 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. 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.
References and text citations: Referencing should follow the author-date system. Author-date citations in the text must agree exactly, in both name and date, with the corresponding entries in the reference list and there must be an entry for every text citation. It is the author's responsibility to ensure such agreement as well as the accuracy of the reference. Please refer to examples below:
