Call for Papers: Georgetown Journal of Asian Affairs

image: Georgetown logoThe Georgetown Journal of Asian Affairs is a new initiative launched by the Asian Studies Program at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. The Journal is now accepting research articles for its inaugural issue, which is scheduled to be printed in fall 2014. The editors invite papers on any topic pertinent to countries in Central, Northeast, Southeast, and South Asia. Submissions from both undergraduate and graduate students are welcome. The deadline is August 15, 2014.

Submissions should be e-mailed to guasiajournal@gmail.com as a Microsoft Word document (do not submit in PDF format). All submissions must include an abstract (100-200 words). Authors should include a short bio in the e-mail text, but should avoid any self-identification in the manuscript.

Manuscripts should be 5,000 to 7,000 words in length. Use Times New Roman, 12-point size, and 1-inch/2.5-centimeter margins on all sides. Manuscripts should follow The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition. Citations should be formatted as footnotes. Also include a full bibliography at the end. Submissions must be original and not under review elsewhere.

All submissions are subject to initial screening by the Editorial Board. Manuscripts that pass an initial screening are sent to faculty and outside reviewers. Articles approved by reviewers are accepted for publication, conditioned on the proper revision of the piece along the lines suggested by the Journal’s Editorial Board.
