Journal of Southeast Asian Studies
The Journal of Southeast Asian Studies is published for the Department of History, National University of Singapore, by Cambridge University Press. Contributions are invited from scholars working in all disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and should deal with the Philippines, Timor Leste, Indonesia, Brunei Darussalam, Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos or Vietnam.
The editorial board prefers manuscripts of between 9,000 and 12,000 words, inclusive of footnotes, oriented toward a readership composed of scholars working in various disciplines, but written to be accessible to non-specialists.
Materials should be fully documented and have enduring value. Analyses of current affairs that may quickly fall out of date, and pieces containing policy prescriptions, are rarely accepted.
Before a manuscript can be published, it must conform to the Journal’s style sheet, a copy of which can be downloaded as a PDF by clicking on 'JSEAS Style Sheet' at the bottom of this page.
Submission of an article will be taken to mean that it has not been previously published and that it is not on offer to any other publisher.
Contributors are encouraged to submit articles by electronic mail whenever possible.
Authors receive a complimentary copy of the issue of the Journal in which their piece appears and a PDF offprint file.
Material appearing in the Journal of Southeast Asian Studies does not necessarily represent the views of the editors or of the publisher, and responsibility for opinions expressed and the accuracy of facts published in articles rests solely with the individual authors.
