IA Submissions Guidelines
Manuscripts will be subjected to anonymous review by at least three peers, including (whenever possible) persons expert in the specialty study area under consideration. The author(s) of accepted manuscripts will be advised of needed revisions. Proofs will be circulated for final approval before printing.
Manuscripts may be submitted in hard copy, on disk, or via electronic mail. Because of the blind review, author's name(s) should appear only on the cover letter, not on the manuscripts themselves. For review, submit illustrations in high-quality photocopy form. Submit footnotes and figure captions on a separate sheet of paper or file accompanying the text. Include an abstract of 50-100 words. Preference is given to manuscripts under 7,500 words.
Hard copy submission-- Submit four copies printed clearly on 8.5-x-11-inch bond paper, single sided, double spaced. Use wide margins (minimum 1 inch). Do not hyphenate at the right-hand margin.
Disk submission-- Submit manuscript on a CD or DVD. Use Word, WordPerfect, or unformatted ASCII text in a Macintosh (preferred), or Windows format. Label the disk with owner's name and contents, including file names and format. Please submit a hard-copy printout as well.
Electronic submission-- Transmit manuscript electronically to the editor's e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Generally, refer to the Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition) and recent issues of IA for guidelines.
Footnotes-- Footnotes must appear at the end of articles as endnotes.
Figure Captions-- Figure captions should indicate all relevant information, such as subject, date, source, compass direction (if applicable), and name of photographer or delineator.
Illustrations-- Indicate their placement in text as follows: (insert figure 1 here). Number consecutively and label as "figures". Drawings, charts, and tables must be camera-ready. Photographs should be 8-x-10-inch, glossy, black-and-white prints or high-quality digital images (300 dpi minimum). The back of each photograph must be labeled with its figure number and the word TOP signifying proper orientation to avoid confusion. All original art will be returned.
Tables-- Number consecutively and label as "tables" within the text along with an identifying title-- Table 1: Kiln and Mound Sites.
