Preparation of Manuscript
・All manuscripts submitted to Philippine Studies should be original contributions and must not be under
consideration for any other publication. However, translation into English of an article previously published in
another language may be submitted for consideration, but the author is responsible for copyright permission.
・Manuscripts must be typed and double-spaced, including quotations, notes, and references. Adequate subheadings
must be provided.
・Notes, tables, figures and illustrations should be kept to a minimum.
Notes, numbered sequentially, must be placed at the end of the text.
Sources for tables, figures and illustrations must be given in full.
・We use author-date citations in the text of articles, following the form outlined in the Chicago Manual of Style,
14th edition. Please consult the latest issue of Philippine Studies as a guide to the journal’s style.
・We expect manuscripts to range between 7,000 to 10,000 words, including notes and the list of references. Longer
articles will be considered in exceptional cases. Authors should provide a total word count at the time of submission.
・Because we follow a blind refereeing system, all references to the author’s identity must be removed from the
body and notes.
・Please submit a separate page that contains the title of the manuscript; an abstract of about 100 words; a brief
description of the author; the author’s contact details; and five keywords.
・We aim to give authors a decision within three months, although this target may not always be reached. That
decision may be a conditional or unconditional acceptance, a rejection, or an invitation to revise and resubmit.
・The author is obliged to secure all necessary permissions for any parts of the article the copyright of which is
owned by someone else, and to pay any fees that may be involved.
・It is a condition for publication that authors vest copyright in their articles, abstracts, and reviews in the Ateneo
de Manila University.
Authors may use their own articles in other publications provided prior permission is sought from the Ateneo de
・Please send two hard copies and one electronic version in MS Word via email attachment or in a disk. Manuscripts
will not be returned, so please keep the original.
・Papers submitted for consideration should be sent to The Editor, Philippine Studies, Ateneo de Manila University
Press, P.O. Box 154, 1099 Manila, Philippines; and to email@example.com.
