As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

MANUSKRIPTA invites scholars, experts, and students working in manuscripts studies to submit articles on their fields. Articles should be original, research-based, unpublished and not under review for possible publication in other journals. All submitted articles are subject to review.

Articles may be written in English or Bahasa between approximately 7.000-10.000 words. All submission must include 100-150 words abstract and 5-7 keywords. Quotations, passages, and words in local or foreign languages should be translated into English.

MANUSKRIPTA accepts only electronic submissions. Please register yourself on this website before submitting your article. 

All notes must appear in the text as citations. A citation usually requires only the last name of the author(s), year of publication, and (sometimes) page numbers. For example: (Teeuw, 1967: 45; Fathurahman: 2012). Explanatory footnotes may be included but should not be used for simple citations. All works cited must appear in the reference list at the end of the article. In matter of bibliographical style, MANUSKRIPTA follows the American Political Science Association (APSA) manual style. Therefore, MANUSKRIPTA recommends you to use reference database software such as Mendeley, Zotero, RefWorks, or Microsoft Word.

The romanization should be written in accordance with the romanization system in the Library of Congress (LOC). Click here for more information about it.
