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 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.
