Guidelines

Authors are advised to follow the IHS Guidelines for authors in preparing their manuscript before submission. Manuscripts not conforming to these guidelines may be returned.

Types of Articles

Three types of manuscripts may be submitted to IHS:

Regular Articles: These should describe new and carefully confirmed findings, and experimental procedures should be given in sufficient detail for others to verify the work. The length of a full paper should be between 6 to 18 manuscript pages.

Short Communications: A Short Communication is a concise, but independent report suitable for recording the results of complete small investigations including the reporting of additional controls and confirmatory results in other settings, as well as negative results. The style of main sections need not conform to that of full-length papers. Short communications should be between 5 to 9 manuscript pages in length.

Review: Submissions of reviews and perspectives covering topics of current interest are welcome and encouraged. Reviews should be concise and no longer than 4 to 6 manuscript pages. Reviews are also peer-reviewed.

Proofs and Reprints

Electronic Proofs will be sent through e-mail to the corresponding author as a PDF format file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Authors can freely download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles.

Copyright

Copyrights for articles published in IHS are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author's responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.

Publication Fee

If the article is accepted for publication, author(s) will be asked to pay $100 USD as article publication fee in order to defray the operating costs. Publication of an article in the International Humanities Studies is not contingent upon the author's ability to pay the charges. Neither is acceptance to pay the processing fee a guarantee that the paper will be accepted for publication. Authors may still request (in advance) that the editorial office waive some of the processing fee under special circumstances. The payment method will be notified by the editor after the acceptance of the article.

The international humanities studies strives towards honest, advanced and scientific communication. Therefore, IHS focuses on valid and reliable reported data, results, methods and procedures.

In order to achieve the aforementioned, IHS avoids bias in experimental design, data analysis, data interpretation, peer review, grant writing, expert testimony, and other aspects of research where objectivity is a requirement.

When conducting research on human subjects, IHS believes in minimizing human harm and risks. Finally, IHS believes in respecting human dignity, privacy and autonomy.
