Brief Guidelines for Contributors: The editors will consider for publication in IJHSS articles, book reviews, review essays, etc. in the social sciences or in the humanities that combine high quality scholarship and compatibility with the recent theoretical development. A prospective contributor of a symposium, article, or documentation piece to the Review can submit can submit materials to the appropriate editor either by an e-mail attachment (Microsoft Word or Word perfect) or by mailing a 3-1/2-inch disk. All submissions of regular articles, symposium submissions, and review essays (not a regular book review) must include an abstract of approximately 150 -300 words.

Regular articles and symposium submissions should be 4000 -7,000 words, including notes; book reviews should normally be 1000 words or less. Longer submissions will be considered. Submissions should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style. Typeface of the text should be 12-point Times New Roman. The notes must appear as end notes. Graphs and illustrations should be placed at the end of the manuscript, one to a page, with their locations and captions clearly indicated in the text of the manuscript. Acceptance of a manuscript for publication may be conditioned on the author’s making changes deemed necessary or desirable by the Editorial Board.
The IJHSS appears in July and December each year, and submissions made by May 1 and October 1 have the best chance of appearing in the upcoming issue, unless that issue is already filled.
