All editorial communications should be addressed in the first instance to the Publications Committee, Royal Asiatic Society, CPO Box 255, Seoul 100, Korea. Two copies of prospective articles should be enclosed.
Contributions submitted for consideration of publication in the Society’s Transactions should be typed double spaced, with a 1 1/2” left-hand margin. Hand-written or incomplete manuscripts cannot be accepted for consideration. Pages should be typed on one side of the sheet only, and should be numbered consecutively. Notes and references should be typed on a separate sheet (or sheets) and not at the foot of each page. Prospective contributors are advised to consult recent editions of the Transactions to ascertain the style used for references and citations. The same general format should be observed for book typescripts.
All tables, illustrations, and other graphic material should be clearly labelled. Tables should appear at the appropriate point in the accompanying text or, when this is not possible, on a separate sheet as close as practicable to the relevant passage. In this case the text should contain a clear indication of the existence of related graphic material. Lists of words such as names should be treated in a similar manner. It is editorial policy that tables and lists printed in the Transactions should not spread over more than one page, unless the tabular material is unusually long. Illustrations and figures should be large-size originals. Figures should each be drawn on a separate sheet in India ink and their presence should be clearly indicated at the appropriate point in the text. All tables, figures and illustrations should have individual captions.
Korean words and names should be Romanized and underlined according to the McCune—Reischauer system. Authors should refer to the Simplified Table of McCune—Reischauer Romanization of Korean, which is available from the society’s office in Seoul.
Authors whose contributions are accepted for publication in the Transactions will receive one copy of the galley proofs for correction and return. They will be notified of the date by which corrected proofs should be returned to the Editor. Later corrections, together with amendments or additions to the accepted text, will be authorized only at the Editor’s discretion and may incur a charge to the author. Authors will receive only galley proofs; page proofs will not normally be sent to journal contributors.
Authors of published articles will be supplied with 20 copies of offiprints free of charge. Additional copies may be obtained on request at moderate cost. Authors are asked to notify the Editor of their requirements for copies when returning corrected proofs.
