Submission Guidelines

  • Original manuscripts with a 100 word abstract and at least three key words may be sent to
  • Submissions should contain institutional affiliation and contact details of author(s), including email address, contact number, etc. 
  • Manuscripts should be prepared in MSWord version, using double spacing. 
  • The text of manuscripts, particularly full length articles and essays may range between 4,000- 4,500 words. Book reviews/ event report shall range between 1,000-15,00 words. 
  • In-text referencing should be embedded in the anthropological style, for example ‘(Hirschman 1961)’ or ‘(Lakshman 1989:125)’ (Note: Page numbers in the text are necessary only if the cited portion is a direct quote). Footnotes are required, as per the discussions in the paper/article. 
  • Use British spellings rather than American spellings. Thus, ‘labour’ not ‘labor’. Use figures (rather than word) for quantities and exact measurements including percentages (2 per cent, 3 km, 36 years old, etc.). 
  • In general descriptions, numbers below 10 should be spelt out in words. Use fuller forms for numbers and dates— for example 1980-88, pp. 200-202 and pp. 178-84. 
  • Specific dates should be cited in the form June 2, 2004. Decades and centuries may be spelt out, for example ‘the eighties’, ‘the twentieth century’, etc. 
  • Referencing Style: References cited in the manuscript and prepared as per the Harvard style of referencing and to be appended at the end of the manuscript. They must be typed in double space, and should be arranged in alphabetical order by the surname of the first author. 
  • In case more than one work by the same author(s) is cited, then arrange them chronologically by year of publication 
  • Mere submission of an article does not guarantee its publication in the journal.
