The Japanese Journal of American Studies STYLE SHEET AND GUIDE FOR AUTHORS

I. Procedure for submitting manuscripts

first stage

  1. In order to facilitate the printing process,        manuscripts should be prepared using a personal computer.
  2. The paper should not exceed 7,000 words, including notes.       If graphs, maps, etc. are included,        then the number of words should be reduced proportionally        in order to accommodate these materials.       For details, please refer to section II.
  3. Once the manuscript has been reviewed by a native speaker of English        familiar with academic style,        3 copies of the completed paper should be sent to The JJAS Editorial Committee,       JAAS, c/o The University of Tokyo Center for Pacific and American Studies,       3-8-1 Komaba, Meguro-ku, Tokyo 153-8902.
  4. The editorial committee will meet to review the submitted manuscripts        and make its decisions, and authors will be informed of the results        before the end of June. Papers will be either (A) accepted as submitted,       (B) accepted contingent on revision, (C) not accepted.

second stage

  1. For papers in categories (A) and (B),       authors will be requested to submit an electronic file for editing.       For papers in category (B) the committee will decide        after reviewing the revisions made whether or not to accept the paper        for publication.  The editorial committee may make suggestions        for revision of accepted manuscripts,        and will then return them to each of the authors.       Authors are requested to take these suggestions into consideration       as they revise their manuscripts.       During this second stage, the editorial committee may continue to suggest       further revisions.

third stage

  1. Three copies of the final manuscript should be submitted        to the editorial committee: 2 hard copies and one on a floppy disk       (see note III below).


  1. Galleys will be sent to authors in March or early April.       Authors should notify the committee in advance       if they will be away from their usual mailing address at any time       during this period.       At this time, authors are also requested to submit a short English summary       (no more than a paragraph) of their paper,       for the editor-in-chief's reference.       In principle, authors will proofread only the first galleys.       In order to communicate corrections and additions clearly to the printer,       authors should annotate their manuscripts by hand in red pencil or ink,       before returning the corrected galleys to the editorial committee.       There is no need to submit the revised version on floppy disk.

other matters

  1. Authors will receive 50 offprints and two copies of the Journal.
  2. Submitted materials will not be returned.
  3. Acknowledgments should be kept to a minimum.       The Journal's policy is only to allow acknowledgements       that recognize specific assistance made in preparing the submitted manuscript,       for example, from libraries or institutions.       More general acknowledgments, for example of colleagues or editors       who read and commented on the manuscript or assisted the author more generally,       should not be included.
  4. Papers published in the Journal will be simultaneously published        in electronic form on the Journal's website.       Any author who does not wish their paper to be included        in the electronic form of the journal should notify the committee in advance.

II. Manuscript style

  1. Manuscripts should be typed double-spaced on A4 paper       (approximately 65 characters/spaces to a line, 25 lines to a page).       The total length should be approximately 35 pages, including notes.       Manuscripts should not exceed 7,000 words, including notes,       less if necessary to accommodate graphs, maps, and illustrations       within an equivalent number of pages.
  2. In principle, authors should refer to        The Chicago Manual of Style , 14th ed.       (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1993) for style guidance.       Kate Turabian's        A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses,       and Dissertations , 6th ed. (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1996)       is a useful abbreviation.  In some cases the following reference works       may also be used:        MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers ,       6th ed. (New York: Modern Language Association of America, 2003),        Publication Manual of the        American Psychological Association , 3rd ed.       (Washington, D.C.: American Psychological Association, 1984).       In all cases, authors should use a uniform style throughout the manuscript.
  3. Please refer to the back issues for basic style.
  4. Notes should be presented as endnotes, following the main body of the text,       and typed double-spaced       (approximately 65 characters/spaces to a line, 25 lines to a page).
  5. The author's name should be given below the title,       in the order of given name and then family name.       The official English language name of the author's affiliation       (university, research institute, etc.) should also be given.
  6. In order to make the papers easier to read,       it is desirable that each manuscript be divided into several sections,       with roman numerals or headings (or a combination thereof)       at the beginning of each section.       The first section and last section may be given topic headings,       or headed as "introduction" and "conclusion,"       and/or they may be given roman numerals.       Headings should not be centered.
  7. Graphs, maps, photographs, etc. should be glued individually       on to separate sheets of A4 paper, without page numbers.       Captions should be written concisely beneath each figure.       The location of final insertion in the manuscript (page and line)       should be noted clearly on both the separate page and in the text itself.

III. The final manuscript

  1. The final manuscript, with all necessary additions and corrections,       should be submitted to the editorial committee in the form of one floppy disk       (text file) and 2 hard copies.       Authors should make sure that they have kept a back-up disk       containing their manuscript.       On the submitted floppy disk, please note the name of both the hardware       and the software program used.
  2. Block quotations should not be indented or single-spaced,       but should be indicated in the margin of the manuscript.
  3. The first line of each note should not be indented,       and the note number should be given in the same font size as the text of the note.       One space should be inserted between the number and the beginning of the note.       Notes should be double-spaced.
  4. For further guidance on any editorial issues,       please write to the editorial committee.
