As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal or edited collection for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word or RTF document file format.
  • When available, the URLs to access references online are provided, including those for open access versions of the reference. The URLs are ready to click (e.g., http://pkp.sfu.ca). If DOI numbers are available for a cited work, these should be provided at the end of the item in the References Cited section in clickable form in the format exemplified here: https://doi.org/10.1109/5.771073 .
  • As submitted, the text should be double-spaced, use one inch margins, and be presented in a 12-point font. Authors should employ italics rather than underlining (except with URL addresses).
  • All illustrations, figures, and tables should be submitted separately as image files rather than being placed within the text. These individual files should be high quality .jpg or .tiff files that will be used during the production process for contributions accepted for publication. For submissions being peer-reviewed, authors should also prepare a simple low file size document that combines, numbers, and captions the full set of figures for the use of peer-reviewers. In the body text of the contribution itself, authors should refer readers to figures with call outs at the end of appropriate sentences, as illustrated here (Figure 1).
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, corresponding authors should insure that personally identifying information has been removed from all submission files. Rather than provide specific instructions here, authors are urged to seek information on doing this online with a search for "remove metadata" in combination with the name of software being used or the file type being submitted.
  • During the submission process, corresponding authors will be required to submit a set of keywords for their article. Geographic (ex: Ireland; Andros Island) and societal keywords (Ex: Haudenosaunee; Jewish) keywords can be suggested in an open-ended way but topical keywords should be chosen from the American Folklore Society Ethnographic Thesaurus, which is maintained and made available by the Library of Congress's Linked Data Service (ex: pottery making; open-air museums) Find the AFS ET here: https://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/ethnographicTerms.html

In matters of style, including the formatting of citations and references, Museum Anthropology Review follows the 17th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style (author-date system) and Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. Papers requiring notes should use endnotes rather than footnotes. Article contributions to Museum Anthropology Review generally do not exceed 8,000 words, including notes and other elements. Authors wishing to submit longer works are advised to discuss their proposed projects with the editor.
