Author Guidelines

Authors are invited to contribute to this journal. We would be grateful for original, high-quality academic texts in social and cultural anthropology and related fields that enrich knowledge in the field, broaden the range of information, and are original and previously unpublished. Before submitting a proposal for publication, please look at previous issues of the journal, the different sections to which papers may be proposed, and the citation and formatting rules that the journal maintains.



Submission Preparation Checklist

  1. Before submitting, authors check that they submit material for which they have copyright or permission to publish (especially photos, documents, and datasets). All authors on the submission must consent to be identified as an author. They will also ensure that the published text conforms to the ethical standards of their field.
  2. Please ensure the study design and research argument are adequately structured and articulated before submission. The title should be concise. An article or a study should contain an abstract and keywords. The abstract should be able to stand on its own. It will increase the likelihood of reviewers agreeing to review the paper. Before submitting the paper, please follow the checklist below.
  1. The text has not been published or is not currently being submitted to another journal.
  2. The file is in OpenOffice or Microsoft Word format.
  3. URL references are referenced wherever possible.
  4. The text has a simple spacing font size of 12 and is used rather italic and not underlined (except URL addresses). All tables and picture illustrations are placed in text rather than at the end of the article.
  5. The text corresponds to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements listed below.
  6. If the text is sent to the reviewed section of the journal, it will be anonymised before being sent to reviewers.



Editorial rules

  1. All texts can be submitted via the editorial system or by contacting the editor-in-chief, who will place them in the editorial system. All submissions will be assessed by an editor to determine whether they meet the aims and scope of this journal. Before beginning the editorial process, the editor first reviews the manuscripts to determine whether they conform to the journal’s focus, the ethical standards of the field, and whether the submission is complete. An editor may reject a submission if it does not meet minimum quality standards. If the text requires the journal standards, start processing the text according to the rules of each section. Non-reviewed sections (editorials, reports, reviews, discussions, interviews) are reviewed and processed by the editorial office, while reviewed sections (articles and studies) are subject to peer review.
  2. Peer review is double-blind. Peer reviewers assess an anonymised text, and the author is given recommendations to edit it so that it is not apparent who reviewed it. The editors select two peer reviewers who make recommendations for editing or may reject the manuscript. If one recommends acceptance of the text and the other rejection, the editors request a third review. If the manuscript is accepted, the author returns it to the editorial office after editing, which either judges whether the manuscript has been properly edited or may ask the peer reviewers to re-evaluate it.



Style guidelines

Texts in the peer-reviewed section of the journal should have a title of the text, the author’s name, and the author’s affiliation, abstract, and keywords. The text can be structured into subchapters with separate subtitles. Text in the peer-reviewed section has a list of references.

Text citations concerning surrounding text and punctuation Recent literature has examined long-run price drifts following initial public offerings (Ritter 1991; Loughran and Ritter 1995), stock splits (Ikenberry, Rankine, and Stice 1996), seasoned equity offerings (Loughran and Ritter 1995), and equity repurchases (Ikenberry, Lakonishok, and Vermaelen 1995).

Fiorina et al. (2005) and Fischer and Hout (2006) reach more or less the same conclusions.

As Edward Tufte (2001: 139) points out, “A graphical element may carry data information and also perform a design function usually left to non-data-ink.”
