What to submit

JOSAH is a refereed journal and the flagship publication of the Australian Society for Asian Humanities, which promotes knowledge of Asia and provides a venue for scholars to present their work to their peers and others interested in Asia.

JOSAH publishes original articles relating to any region(s) of Asia and from all disciplines in the Humanities. Submissions to JOSAH should not have been submitted, accepted for publication or published elsewhere. We accept:

  • Articles: roughly 5,000–8,000 words. Assessed anonymously by two referees.
  • Book reviews: roughly 1,500–2,000 words (but may be longer).
  • Memorial lectures, obituaries, etc.: not refereed, length by arrangement with the editors.
  • Proposals for special issues: include a general rationale, explaining the significance of the topic and how it fits with JOSAH’s aims, and a set of abstracts for contributions.

The accepted manuscript is defined here as the final draft author manuscript, as accepted for publication by JOSAH, including modifications based on referees’ suggestions, before it has undergone copy-editing and proof correction.

Submissions should follow the JOSAH style guide.
