Submit your article as an email attachment to the Editor-in-Chief (
) of JNHA, who will forward it to the appropriate Associate Editor. In the body of your email message, provide the author's name, email address, home and institutional addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and a short biographical statement (no more than 50 words). In order to ensure blind readings from the reviewers, the author's name should not appear on the title page, abstract, or elsewhere in the manuscript, including in the endnotes.
The manuscript must be double-spaced (including endnotes), and submitted in a standard word-processing program, preferably Microsoft Word. PC and MAC versions are both acceptable. It should begin with an approximately 100-word abstract. The text and notes must conform to the styles given in the Chicago Manual of Style (15th or subsequent editions, available on line www.chicagomanualofstyle.org, Citation Quick Guide). Provide a list of illustration captions. Illustrations should be submitted as individual jpegs, a few per email; if their number is large, they should be submitted in a zip-file.Word files with illustrations appropriately captioned are also welcome though not required. The maximum length of articles will be 7500-10,000 words.
Although JHNA publishes articles only in English, the editorial board will try to have Dutch, German, and French language submissions vetted to determine whether the article should be read by a peer reviewer. Authors of accepted articles are responsible for their translation into English. The editors will provide authors with letters that they can use to apply for translation funds in their home countries.
2. Submission of Accepted Manuscripts
Once the article is accepted and all requested revisions have been made, the author will send the final text to the Editor-in-Chief in the form of e-mail attachments. In this version, the author's name and institution should appear immediately beneath the title on the first page. The author will be sent a Publication Agreement in response.
Please follow the submission requirements carefully:
Double-space ALL copy. Use 12-point Times New Roman type for all elements. Include the following sections in this order: abstract, one-sentence description of content, text, acknowledgements (see below), author's biographical statement, list of illustrations, bibliography, 5-7 keywords. Leave a margin of 1½ inches all around. Do not break words (hyphenate) at ends of lines. Do not justify the right-hand margin. Use italic type for words to be set in italics. Do not use boldface or other sizes or styles of font.Number all pages. Follow the Chicago Manual of Style on page numbering; avoid use of "f."
Acknowledgements precede the notes at the end of the article; they should not be indicated with* or another sign, and they should not be counted as note 1.
Notes should be numbered consecutively and kept fairly short; they should appear as endnotes.
Quotations must be absolutely accurate and carefully transcribed. An ellipsis (three spaced dots) indicates words dropped within a sentence. A period and three spaced dots indicate a deletion between sentences.
If you are responsible for some of the translations, add at the head of the notes: "Unless otherwise indicated, translations are mine."
Foreign-language quotations in both text and notes should be translated into English, unless the significance of the quotation will be lost. The original text may be included in a note if it is unpublished, difficult to access, or of philological relevance to the article.
Brackets in quoted material indicate author's interpolation; in inscriptions they indicate letters lost through damage. Parentheses indicate letters omitted as the result of abbreviation in inscriptions.
All references to publications, archival documents, and the like should appear in full form (including place of publication and publisher) only once. Subsequent appearances should use a short form: surname of author, short title, and page reference. (Consult The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed., 16.42, for details). Do not use op. cit.
Illustrations must be excellent in quality and in digital form. These will be published as jpegs at 72 dpi resolution. Images should be at least 600 pixels at the largest dimension and no greater than 800 pixels. We would prefer that you submit images as jpegs in email attachments, a few images per email. Name your files with the following convention: Fig#.jpg. Alternatively, submit a zip file (if the number of images is large) by email attachment or burn a CD to send the Editor-in-Chief by ordinary mail.
Captions should be submitted on a separate page or section, double-spaced. Captions should be numbered consecutively.
JHNA includes full caption information, whenever available and appropriate, in this order:
Figure number with period
Artist Title (in italics)
Medium on support
Dimensions in centimeters (1 inch = 2.54 cm)
Name of collection
City of collection
Other collection information such as "gift of . . . ," accession number, in addition to special wording required by the museum/collector that has provided the reproduction.
(artwork in the public domain)
Fig. 4 Cornelis Engelbrechtsz, Christ Taking Leave of His Mother, ca. 1515-20, oil on panel, 54.7 x 44 cm. Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, inv. no. SK-A-1719 (artwork in the public domain)
Artist, title, date, medium, and dimensions are separated by commas, and these elements are followed by a period. Collection, city, and additional lines follow, separated by commas. There is no terminal period, unless the basic caption information is followed by a descriptive sentence, which is only permitted in exceptional cases. ìArtwork in the public domain,î in parentheses, closes the caption (without period at the end).
Once their articles are accepted, authors will be asked to provide a one-sentence summary of their articles which can be posted on the siteís table of contents. Authors are also asked to supply a list of 5 to 7 "keywords" by which their articles could be searched in the journal's archive and in databases. For example, an article about Rembrandt's portrait of Jan Six might be searchable with the Netherlands, Dutch, painting, portraiture, costume, Rembrandt, and Jan Six.
Authors must be members of HNA at the time of publication.
