Submission Guidelines

Guidelines for Authors

The Journal of the Malaysian Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society (JMBRAS) is published half-yearly by MBRAS. It disseminates knowledge and matters of historical value pertaining to Malaysia and the surrounding region. Articles submitted should be in English and should not have been published or be under consideration elsewhere. Authors are requested to adhere to the guidelines below.

Submission Of Ms

Format. All articles should be submitted as a Microsoft Word document in 12 point Times New Roman. They should be sent on a CD or emailed to the Journal Editor, together with a printed version, double-spaced on single sides with 30 mm margins all round. (Authors are advised to retain an identical copy of theMS and illustrations submitted.)

Author Details. Please include your full postal address/phone/fax/email plus a short biographical note of 50–60 words on a separate sheet.

Presentation Of Ms

Length and Style. Articles should not exceed 10,000 words. The writing should be clear and readable, free from jargon. Foreign words and abbreviations must be defined at first mention.

Abstract, Introduction, Conclusion. All articles should begin with an Abstract of 150–200 words, followed by an Introduction which should orient readers to the topic and thesis of the article. The Conclusion should summarize the article’s findings and, where feasible, point to future research.

Tables. Tables (in a separate file) should be titled and numbered consecutively with their positions clearly indicated in the text. Sources and footnotes (numbered independently of the text notes) should be provided below the tables.

Illustrations, Figures, Maps. All line diagrams and photographs are termed ‘Figures’ and should be numbered in a single sequence following their order in the text. Maps may be numbered separately if deemed more convenient for readers.

All figures should be submitted in separate files from the text and have complete captions with sources and acknowledgements. Authors are responsible for securing the required copyright permission for their articles.

Line diagrams should be suitable for immediate reproduction to a text area of 125 mm x 190 mm. Photographs should be provided in highresolution (300 dpi) jpeg files.

References. The Journal uses the author–date system, citing the author’s name, publication year, and page numbers in the footnotes (e.g. Gullick (1987: 112); Yong (1992: 61–70), and providing the full details in a list of References at the end of the article.

Footnotes should be signalled in the text by superscript numbers. As the list of References is the primary vehicle for documentation in the author–date system, authors must ensure that all sources cited in the text (and no others) are included in the References and that all bibliographical details are accurate.
