Kimiya-ye Honar Style Sheet
Guidelines for Submission of Articles
Authors are asked to provide the following information with
their submissions:1. Institutional
affiliation (if any)2. mailing
and fax numbers4. E-mail
addressPlease submit your manuscripts via e-mail attachments in
Microsoft Word, along with low-resolution illustrations. Submissions should
either be sent online according to the Journal’s instruction (available at www.kimiahonar.ir)
or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. All
articles would be subject to review by the editor and anonymous external
reader(s), whose comments will be sent to the author, if the article is
accepted for publication. The authors will be asked then to make revisions
based on the peers’ reports and re-submit it to the Journal’s associate editor
together with higher-resolution images at that time. Articles that do not
follow Kimiya-ye Honar's style will be sent back to the author for amendment. Submissions
should be double-spaced throughout in 12-pt. typeface. Use a five-character
paragraph indent. Authors’ current institutional affiliation and their location
should appear on the first text page. Authors should also include an abstract
(500 words maximum) plus keywords on the same page where the affiliation is
indicated. Articles should not exceed 20 pages (not including endnotes) and
have an upper limit of 15 illustrations.
Illustrations Illustrations should be labeled and accompanied by a double-spaced
full caption list (artist’s name, title of the work, year of creation,
technique, size, copyright information) indicating the authors’ preferred size
of illustrations depicted in their paper (i.e., full, half, quarter page).
Authors should provide specific directions, should they wish the images to be
grouped in a particular manner. It is the author’s responsibility to obtain
permissions for copyrighted materials and to provide the appropriate
credit-line information. Illustrations should be submitted as digital images
(color or b/w) in JPEG or TIFF format, 300 dpi in a size that will fill at
least a half page. Please title each digital image with your name and the
figure number. Images not submitted in the format indicated above will not be
accepted for publication. Style GuidelinesFor the transliteration of Persian words, authors should
follow either the Iranian Studies scheme, or else that used by The
International Journal of Middle East Studies (minus the diacritics but with
macrons). For the transliteration of Arabic and Ottoman Turkish, authors should
follow the modified IJMES scheme. However the use of established Anglicized
forms such as Kurdistan, Hafiz, Isfahan, Majlis (instead of Kordestan, Hafez,
Esfahan, Majles) will be more appropriate. Whichever scheme is chosen (Iranian
Studies or modified IJMES), it must be strictly adhered to. Failure to do so
will result in the submission being rejected, even if it has passed peer
review. The ezafeh is written as –e after consonants, e.g. ketab-e and as –ye
after vowels (and silent final h), e.g. darya-ye and khaneh-ye. The silent final h is written, e.g.
Dowleh. The tashdid is represented by a doubling of the letter, e.g. takhassos.
The plural ha is added to the noun with a dash, e.g. cheshm-ha. American
English is preferred both for spelling and punctuation. Please provide glosses
for all foreign terms used and translate foreign titles when they are first
mentioned in the text of the article.
Journal’s Reference StyleEndnote numbers in the text should be placed after the full
point at the end of a sentence.
Color ImagesAuthors are expected to limit the use of color images to
occasions where it is absolutely necessary on scientific, and not merely
cosmetic, grounds. However, the online edition of the journal will cover all
the figures in color, if required.
Reproduction of Copyright Material
It is authors’ responsibility, prior to the submission of a
paper, to obtain written permission from the copyright owner of any material in
their manuscript. Such material may include text, data, table, illustration,
photograph, line drawing, audio and video clips, film still, and screenshot or
any other supplemental material authors aim to use. This also applies to direct
(verbatim or facsimile) reproduction as well as “derivative reproduction”
(where authors have created a new figure or table which derives substantially
from a copyrighted source). Authors must confirm that they have obtained
appropriate permission or acknowledgement for reuse of any content which is
under the protection of copyright. Authors are solely responsible for any fees
which the copyright holder may charge for reuse. The reproduction of short
extracts of text, excluding poetry and song lyrics, for the purposes of
criticism may be possible without formal permission on the basis that the
quotation is reproduced accurately and full attribution is given.Citations
Authors are responsible for the accuracy of all citations.
Throughout the text of a paper, citations to source materials should be
numbered in sequence and presented as endnotes—that is, notes grouped together
at the conclusion of the text. Like the text, endnotes should be double-spaced.
“Ibid.” should be used for uninterrupted, successive references to the same
work. When referring to a previously cited work that does not follow without
interruption, use the author’s name and a shortened title, not the date of
publication of the work. Do not use “op. cit.” Names and titles in non-Roman
alphabets (Arabic, Cyrillic, Greek, etc.) must be transliterated. Titles in
Roman alphabets should be capitalized as they would be in the book’s language.
Publishers may be included or omitted in the endnotes, but be consistent
throughout. Do not use initials for first names—unless of course the author
identifies himself or herself in that way: K.A.C. Creswell, R.D. McChesney. Use
the full title in the first citation of a work. For any other issues on
citation not mentioned here, Kimiya-ye Honar
is following the last edition of
The Chicago Manual of Style (CMS).
