Author Guidelines

The editor of Japanese Research on Linguistics, Literature, and Culture welcomes article submissions in accordance with the following guidelines:

  1. Articles have not been published or accepted for publication, or are being considered for publication elsewhere. In addition to the manuscript, a written statement should be attached which clarifies that the article is original and does not contain any elements of plagiarism.
  2. Types of articles suitable for publication include the following: research reports (laboratory, field, archives), conceptual ideas, studies, theory applications.
  3. Articles are written in Indonesian/English using academic language along with standard academic writing structure and composition. Manuscripts are typed 1,5 spaced in a quarto paper size (A4), between 3000-8000 words in length including references, pictures, and tables. Papers that greatly exceed this will be critically reviewed with respect to length.
  4. Articles should be in form of essay which includes:
  • Do not write author’s name in any part of the article (Japanese Research on Linguistics, Literature, and Culture has already applied double-blind review in the review process),
  • Title (max. 20 words),
  • Abstract (150-250 words for each) which includes research problems, methods, and results,
  • Keywords (3-5 words),
  • Introduction, which includes background, objectives, methods, and literature reviews/theoretical construct (if needed) of the research. The introduction section ends with an emphasis on items to be discussed,
  • Discussion (consists of results of the study, written in the form of subchapter(s)),
  • Conclusion (is a brief summary of findings and discussion. It is strongly recommended to avoid mere repetitive statements from the previous sections) and
  • References.

 

  1. Diacritics and Spelling of Proper Names

In order to be reproduced accurately in printed version, articles must be aware of any special (e.g., phonetic) symbols. They must be explained in detail with a typeset sample as well. To deal with this issue, Japanese Research on Linguistics, Literature, and Culture recommends authors to use Calibri font, but if this font does not support some symbols, authors are allowed to use other alternatives with notification to the Japanese Research on Linguistics, Literature, and Culture board. Authors must be aware of the spelling of proper names, especially in terms of Japanese personal names and geographical names. Japanese names and any geographical names should be written in Western order without macron (⁻). Japanese names in text: Soichiro Honda; and in the bibliography: Honda, Soichiro.

  1. Dates and Numbers

Dates in the text: 17 August 1945; dates in the bibliography: 17-8-1945. Numbers from one to ten should be spelled out; higher numbers, percentages and measurements should be given as numerals (3 km, 6%).

  1. Figures, Tables and Maps

If your manuscript contains figures or tables, upload them as separate documents, number the figures and tables consecutively, and refer to them in the text (Figure 1, Figure 2, Table 1, Table 2, etc.). Do not include the figures and tables themselves in the manuscript. Indicate in the manuscript where about you would like to see the figure or table included if the manuscript is accepted for publication.  Maps can be called a figure (and numbered as such). For all images (line drawings, photographs, maps), please use high resolution source files: min. 150 dpi for photographs, min 300 dpi for linework images. This is the minimum resolution required at the dimensions of which the images should eventually be reproduced. Please bear in mind that the images themselves should also be of high quality (e.g. the images should be clear and sharp and any text in the images should be sharp and legible). Give the caption and the source of the figure in the main text (exactly at the point where you indicate: ‘Figure x about here’).

  1. Reference list format is based on APA (American Psychological Association) style 6th edition. The reference list should appear at the end of the article and includes only literature actually cited in the manuscripts. References are ordered alphabetically and chronologically. We strongly recommend authors to use reference tools, such as Mendeley, Zotero, Endnote, etc. Herewith are some of the APA-based references format structure:
  • Printed book: Author, A.A. (Year of Publication). Title of work. Publisher City, State: Publisher.
  • Online book: Author, A.A. (Year of Publication). Title of work [E-Reader Version]. Retrieved from http://xxxx or doi:xxxx
