I am happy to share a call for articles I received from my colleague Giovanni Borriello, University of Naples, for the double-blind peer reviewed journal Orientalia Parthenopea (in English: Naples’ Oriental Studies)
A double-blind peer reviewed Series
The double-blind peer reviewed Orientalia Parthenopea [ISSN 1972-3598] Series published by Orientalia Parthenopea Edizioni, Naples (Italy) welcomes submissions on Chinese Studies.
Orientalia Parthenopea aims to provide a scholarly forum only for original, previously unpublished articles (and also reviews and review articles on scholarly books) and in an effort to reach the broadest possible public, it publishes articles in Italian, English, French and German. During the submission process, authors must sign a contribution agreement form in which they declare that their submission is original.
The articles should result from scientific researches in or related to Chinese Studies, that is, all aspects of Chinese culture across the humanities and social science disciplines (including, but not limited to, linguistics, literature, history, religion, arts, cultural studies, music, film, folklore, sociology, history of science).
At present, Orientalia Parthenopea plans to continue to publish one issue per year. Each issue has its own ISBN number (in addition to the ISSN number, which identifies the series). From time to time, the Orientalia Parthenopea aims to publish also thematic issues.
Currently we are calling for articles for the forthcoming issue(s).
Submissions should be submitted according to the MLA guidelines (http://mlaformat.org/) and we kindly request authors to follow the guidelines as closely as possible.
If your article significantly differs from the desired format, you will be asked to restructure it.
All articles published in this Series undergo peer reviewed based on initial editorial screening and a double-blind refereeing process by an international group of reviewers.
Please submit your article together with:
a) full contact details for the corresponding author including email, mailing address and telephone numbers. Academic affiliations are required for all co-authors (university, city, department).
b) a short abstract in English (approx. 150-300 words).
c) a list of up to six keywords.
d) brief biographical notes.
Please send your article saved as an A4 Word document (.doc or .docx) and the images as jpeg files.
Articles (but also images and illustrative material etc.) should be submitted via e-mail to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Length of the Articles: the word limit should generally be around 9,000 words (including notes and bibliography).
Submission of articles to Orientalia Parthenopea will be taken to imply that written permission has already been obtained (tables, figures, photographs or artwork etc.) The original source or copyright must be clearly referenced and acknowledged.
During the submission process, authors will be required to sign a document confirming there is no infringement of copyright and assigning the copyright to Orientalia Parthenopea.
Articles should be submitted no later than 31 August 2017.
