Notes on Submissions Vol 46

<plain_text><page sequence="1">notes on submissions to Jewish Historical Studies: Transactions of the Jewish Historical Society of England, and to other Society publications Jewish Historical Studies: Transactions of the Jewish Historical Society of England (hereafter referred to as Transactions) formerly published primarily papers presented to the Society in London and its branches. Beginning in 2012, Transactions has published in addition substantial scholarly contributions that are subject to a process of blind peer review, generally by two academic referees. It will continue to publish book reviews and review essays, as well as reviews of films, theatrical productions, and other events relevant to the JHSE. Transactions welcomes articles of interest to both academic and general audiences focusing on the history of the Jews in the English-speaking world. While our goal is to preserve the character ofTransactions, the larger objective is to secure the long-term future of the JHSE by appealing to a broader public, with the aim of attracting the next generation of members. Manuscript Submission All manuscripts for consideration should be e-mailed as an attachment in an MS Word file to Michael Berkowitz at m.berkowitz@ucl.ac.uk. Substantial articles, ofaround 8000 words, as well as other submissions, should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style, ed. 15. (This is a departure from previous policy.) The entire manuscript (including footnotes) should be double-spaced and pages must be numbered consecutively. Authors of accepted articles will be asked to prepare a final version in accordance with the style ofTransactions and to submit it as an email attachment. There is an important exception to the guidelines of the Chicago Manual: in the text and footnotes, please place close-quotation marks before any related punctuation, unless the quotation is a complete sentence. This is British practice, buta good one. Examples: Salomons suggested it be called "a peace congress". "Israelis have developed a normal life", wrote Berlin in 1975.

Quotations within quotations should be in single inverted commas. Longer quotations - of about 100 words or ten typed lines - should be indented, preceded and followed by an empty line, and without inverted commas. Words omitted in the course of a quotation should be indicated by three full stops (periods). If the end of a sentence is omitted, four full stops (periods) should be used. Square brackets (parentheses) should be placed round comments inserted by the author in a quotation. a. Figures Figures must be ready for photographic reproduction.

Citations of texts With the exceptions listed above, Transactions follows the documentation guidelines as set out in the Chicago Manual qfStyle, ed. 15. All notes should appear as footnotes (that is, not as in the "Harvard" or social-science style of references). If there is a specific style for work cited from archival sources, such style will be respected. Please do, however, be consistent. The titles ofworks notin English should appear in the original language or in transliteration. All titles of works in Hebrew, Yiddish and other Jewish languages should appear in transliteration, with only the first word of the article and proper names capitalized.
