Author Guidelines

Please submit articles as both a Word doc file and a PDF. Please also send an abstract of 150-250 words in English and contact information (name, affiliation, and address). Since the journal follows a double blind peer review process, the manuscript itself should not contain any indication of the author’s identity. Normally, articles should be no less than 5000 words in length (not incl. notes and bibliography).

Articles should be double spaced throughout, both main text and notes, and typed in a 12 point font. Notes should be formatted as footnotes. A full bibliography of works cited should be included. Pages should be numbered, preferably in the upper right-hand corner.

Articles and other editorial correspondence should be sent

PHASIS does not accept submissions that have been published elsewhere or that are being evaluated for publication elsewhere.

Once a submission has been accepted, the author should submit the final manuscript. The final manuscript should be prepared in accordance with the journal’s style. Please follow the guidelines below:
