INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS
The journal welcomes article submissions dealing with topics including (but not limited to): socio-political and economic developments, foreign policy issues, historical events, art and architecture, geography and politics of the former Soviet space and the Middle East, diasporas and their relations with their home countries, sociological and anthropological issues, role of ethnography and nationalism in politics and history, ethnic conflicts and conflict resolution as well as topics dealing with literature, language, education and religion. The Armenian Review also accepts previously unpublished primary documents, memoirs, reviews, briefings, statistical charts and data, and bibliographical lists. The Armenian Review will, on occasion, consider article submissions in the Armenian language, but if the article is accepted the author should be prepared to have it professionally translated into English.
Manuscripts may be submitted in electronic format (preferably in Microsoft Word) as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hard copy manuscripts can be mailed to The Editor, Armenian Review, 80 Bigelow Avenue, Watertown, MA 02472. All manuscripts submitted to the Armenian Review should be original, unpublished works and should not be under consideration for publication in any other journal at the time of submission.
Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least two referees; therefore, authors are asked to prepare a separate cover page including their name, mailing/contact address, telephone number, e-mail address, and a 75 word biographical statement of the author(s). Each submission should also include a summary/abstract of the article, not to exceed 100 words. After the reviews are submitted by the referees, the Editor will notify the authors of the acceptance, rejection, or need for revision of the submission.
Manuscripts should be on 8½ by 11" paper with 1" margins on all sides. The text should be double-spaced and use a size 12 font for the main text and size 10 for references. The submissions should have the following setup: title page and author(s)' information; main text; endnotes; bibliography. Unless previously agreed upon with the Editor, submissions should not exceed 40 pages (including the endnotes and the bibliography).
Citations should be endnotes (not footnotes) and should adhere to the guidelines found in The Chicago Manual of Style, latest edition. Accuracy of endnotes and tables is the responsibility of the author(s) and the editor reserves the right to turn down an article if it does not adhere to this style. The “footnotes” function of the word-processing software should be used to create the endnotes rather than useing the in-text author citation method. Below are samples of the format used for endnotes.
