Notes for Contributors
The Asia-Pacific Magazine is a quarterly publication designed to contribute towards an understanding of Asia and the Pacific. It provides illustrated information and lively discussion about the anthropology, history, culture, geography, environment, politics and economics of the countries of the region. These are defined as the countries of East, South and Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. The editorial policy of the publication is to remain sensitive to the people of the many and varied countries of the region. The Asia-Pacific Magazine is open to all points of view, tempered by a respect for difference and variety.
The publication is designed for popular appeal to a broad range of readers. These include academics, business people, politicians, public servants and the broader community. It is also designed to cater for upper secondary college and first-year undergraduate students and teachers.
Each issue of the magazine incorporates several major feature articles, some shorter pieces, Letters to the Editor, Book Reviews, and a Regional Commentary on current affairs. All sections feature photographic material wherever possible.
The Asia-Pacific Magazine welcomes contributions and suggestions for articles from all fields. Feature articles should be no more than 3,000 words in length (maximum 10 double-spaced pages). Briefer contributions of less than 3,000 words, as well as substantially shorter anecdotal material (300 to 800) words), are also welcomed. Book reviews should be up to 350 words in length. All contributions should be written in a lively style and be comprehensible and interesting to a wide, general readership. Authors of feature articles will be paid between A$350/US$280 and A$400/US$320 upon publication. Authors of smaller contributions will be paid between A$50/US$40 and A$300/US$240 upon publication.
Contributors are asked to submit copy in hard form (printed single-sided and double-spaced) accompanied by disk (preferably IBM Word for Windows) and several captioned photographs (five or more for feature articles, and up to four for the shorter pieces, preferably 35mm transparencies/slides, in colour if possible) with permission rights or source details to enable permission rights to be obtained before publication where necessary. These should be forwarded to:
Papers accepted for publication will be edited in line with the Magazine's editorial conventions. Articles should have no footnotes. Any essential references must be included in short form in the text: these are to be kept to a minimum.
Each feature article should be accompanied by an abstract of 200-300 words for electronic publication and a brief paragraph giving references for further reading and a short identification of the author (institutional affiliation, major or most-recent publication, etc.) for print/electronic publication with the article. Authors should also indicate if they have a CV entry on an individual or institutional home page to which linkages may be made for a published electronic version of their article.
Foreign words should be italicised. Quoted material should be enclosed by single quotation marks. Spelling generally follows the Concise Oxford Dictionary: e.g., humour, travelling, enrolment. Other examples are: percent, the West, government, state, judgement. Acronyms should only be used following a first use of the full form of the title.
Submission of an article to the Asia-Pacific Magazine for publication is taken to imply that it has not previously been published, is not currently on offer to another publisher, and contains no material of an untrue, libellous or scandalous character. Copyright of articles remains with the Asia-Pacific Magazine.
