Author Guidelines

Editor’s Note: Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be accepted for consideration.

Articles

Antisemitism Studies is edited according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition (Chicago, 2010). All article manuscripts submitted for publication must conform to the following requirements.

Preparation of Manuscripts

  1. The words antisemitism and antisemite should be spelled without a hyphen.
  2. Manuscripts must be in English and should have a word count between 10,000 and 16,000 words,  including endnotes. One journal page accommodates approximately 400 words so our articles will be 25 to 40 pages in length. By contrast, your MS Word manuscript will be between 40 and 64 pages in length (with approximately 250 words per page).
  3. The text should be double-spaced in MS Word and use a 12 point Arial font.
  4. Double-space all copy—including notes and extracts. If applicable, section headings should be brief subtitles in bold.
  5. Page numbers should appear in the top right-hand corner of each page.
  6. New paragraphs should be indicated with indentions, not with extra space between paragraphs.
  7. Italics should be indicated with an italic typeface, not underlining.
  8. All non-Roman scripts must be transliterated. Citations of works in Hebrew should be transliterated according to Encyclopaedia Judaica usage.
  9. Dates should be formatted as month, day, year (March 31, 1492). The dates in archival citations, however, may follow the format used by the archive.
  10. Numbers are spelled out from one to nine; numbers 10 and above use Arabic numerals. Ages follow this format as well.
  11. Quotation marks should always be double, not single; single quotation marks should be used only to set off quotations within quotations.
  12. Punctuation with quotation marks: periods and commas at the ends of quotations should go inside the closing quotation mark. Other punctuation (colons, semicolons, question marks, exclamation points) should go outside unless part of the quotation. For more information, see Manual of Style 6.9-11.
  13. Block quotations should be restricted to quoted material of more than 100 words (approximately 8 lines). Shorter quotations should be run into the text.
  14. Do not include a bibliography. 
  15. Notes must be provided in the manuscript in the form of endnotes, beginning on a separate page following the text. See below for additional information.
  16. If applicable, acknowledgments should appear on the first page of endnotes before the first numbered note (this should be included after the double blind peer review process is completed).
  17. Appendixes must be typed with full double spacing and should be placed immediately after the text, preceding the notes. These pages should be numbered consecutively with the rest of the manuscript.
  18. Tables should either be placed after the notes or provided in a separate file; each should begin on its own separate page.
  19. Figure legends should appear together on a separate page, double spaced, at the end of the manuscript.
  20. Illustrations may be included only at the discretion of the editor. If illustrations or any other copyrighted materials are reproduced in an article, the author will bear all responsibility for: (a) preparing the illustrations according to the publisher’s specifications; (b) obtaining in writing the necessary permissions for reproduction from the copyright holder prior to publication; and, (c) covering all costs and fees associated with these requirements. Any illustrations must be in tiff format.
  21. Antisemitism Studies adheres to a double–blind peer review process in which the identities of the author and reviewers remain confidential, so anything that could reveal the author’s identity should be removed from the text and from the notes until after the manuscript is accepted. Identification, such as the author’s name, professional affiliation, and acknowledgments, should be provided on a separate cover page. The cover page should include contact information, title of the article, and a total word count. References to the author’s own work in the endnotes should be cited in the usual manner by author name, and not in any way as to identify oneself.
  22. Authors must submit two supplementary files: 1) an abstract of the article of 100 to 150 words; and, 2) a short biography of 100 words.  
     

Format of Notes

  1. Notes must be provided in the manuscript in the form of endnotes, beginning on a separate page following the text.
  2. Please keep endnotes as brief as possible, retaining only those that are absolutely necessary for documentation. Discursive notes are best converted to brief parenthetical comments in the text.
  3. Note numbers in the text should be one continuous series of numerals in superscript with no preceding spaces. If you are using multiple quotations from the same source in one paragraph, use one note at the end of the paragraph instead of citing every sentence separately.
  4. Each title should be cited in the language of the edition that you used for research. All non-Roman scripts must be transliterated. Citations of works in Hebrew should be transliterated according to Encyclopaedia Judaica usage.
  5. Endnote form follows the Notes and Bibliography system of The Chicago Manual of Style. Please see the examples on the Chicago Manual of Style Website, and consult chapter 14 of The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition (Chicago, 2010), for additional information.

    Editor’s Note: Articles will not be accepted for consideration without adherence to this method of citation.

    Example for a book with one author:

    1. Michael Pollan, The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (New York: Penguin, 2006), 99–100.

    Example for an electronic citation:

    2. Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Robert Pear, “Wary Centrists Posing Challenge in Health Care Vote,” New York Times, February 27, 2010, accessed February 28, 2010, http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/28/us/politics/28health.html.

Book reviews

Book reviews are generally solicited by the editor; however, suggestions for possible book reviews are welcome.

Antisemitism Studies is edited according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition (Chicago, 2010). All book review manuscripts submitted for publication must conform to the following requirements.

Preparation of Manuscripts

  1. Book reviews should have a word count of 2,400 words.
  2. Please include all bibliographic information about the book at the head of the review. Example: History and Its Limits: Human, Animal, Violence. By Dominick LaCapra. Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 2009. 230 pages. $59.95 (cloth); $19.95 (paper).
  3. The text should be double-spaced in MS Word and use a 12 point Arial font.
  4. Italics should be indicated with an italic typeface, not with underlining.
  5. New paragraphs should be indicated with indentations, not with extra space between paragraphs.
  6. Quotation marks should always be double, not single; single quotation marks should be used only to set off quotations within quotations.
  7. Punctuation with quotation marks: periods and commas at the ends of quotations should always go inside the closing quotation mark. Other punctuation (colons, semicolons, question marks, exclamation points) should always go outside unless part of the quotation.

Format of Notes

  1. Please give first names or initials of every person mentioned for the first time in the review, whether in the text or in a citation, unless they are well known.
  2. Acronyms and abbreviations should be spelled out at their first appearance in the text, followed by the shortened form in parentheses. Subsequently, the acronym or abbreviation alone is sufficient. If the acronym or abbreviation is from a foreign language, it is preferable to spell it out in English. Examples: Member of Parliament (MP); National Socialist party (NSDAP)
  3. Notes should be kept to a minimum. Citations should be given in parentheses in the text in most cases. If notes are unavoidable, they should begin on a separate page following the text.
  4. Quotations from the book under review: Provide page numbers in parentheses in the text when the book under review is quoted. For example: “quoted material” (23).
  5. References to other works: When other works are cited or quoted, please provide references in parentheses in the text as follows:
  • For monographs: (Author, Title [City of publication, year], page number for quotation if applicable)
  • For edited volumes: (Editor, ed., Title [City of publication, year], page number for quotation if applicable)
  • For articles: (Author, "Title," Journal Title volume number [year]: inclusive pages, page number for quotation if applicable)
