JRA Submission Guidelines

Please contact the editor before sending a submission, so that its suitability may first be assessed and so that the publication schedule can be considered. Please first send an abstract or summary by email and indicate the overall length and number of images.

When submitting manuscripts, send the text as a Word document (.doc or .docx) without any images included in it and without any residual “mark-up” / editing changes made to it.
If the text includes any special characters (Greek, Hebrew, Russian, etc.) also send it as a pdf.
Tables should be submitted as Word documents, not Excel files.

For  images, we can only receive attachments up to 13 MB. So you can send images attached to separate email messages or you can send all the images by WeTransfer to our email address. Please do not ask us to download images from other sources. We do not accept images scanned from existing print publications. Ensure that the resolution is above 300 dpi measured according to the desired final size of the printed image. If there are particular or fixed scale requirements for your images (e.g. pottery drawings, architectural plans), also send us a pdf of those images at the size at which they are to be printed.

See below for how proofs will be handled.


JRA stylesheet guidelines for authors:

As of 2018, we now prefer system B, that  articles should include the full reference in the first footnote, using (supra n.00) thereafter, with no need for an end  bibliography.  Only for articles that have bibliographic references also in tables or in images  would we be likely to prefer to use system A with an end bibliography. We would also use system A (with a final composite bibliography) for JRA supplements where many chapters are referring to the same bibliographic citations.

The Citation Style sheets for JRA, systems A and B, are both in online repositories. This will allow direct installation of the citation styles.
