INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS
Two copies of a manuscript must be submitted.
If typed, manuscripts must be on one side only of white 8.5 by
11-inch rag content bond paper (not easy-erase) and the original and
one clear photocopy should be furnished. For word-processed
manuscripts, two legible hard copies are required. If accepted for
publication, please submit a 3.5 double-sided, double-density floppy
diskette. Please advise editor of the program used.
Manuscripts should be double-spaced and
one-inch margins should be allowed on every side. Include an abstract
of 150 words or less that specifically mentions the most important
points in your paper. Footnotes are discouraged. References should be
cited in body of text, set within parentheses, i.e., (Author 1974:
10-12). Such citations should be placed immediately after reference
and should not be collected at ends of paragraphs. Do not use
ibid., op. cit., or similar abbreviations. References should
be listed alphabetically by author and chronologically by year in a
section entitled "References Cited." Contributors should check this
volume or American Antiquity (Vol. 57, No. 4, pp. 749-770,
1992) for other points of style and format.
Uncalibrated 14C ages must be cited
first. They must be given as years B.P. (do not convert to A.D./B.C.)
and followed by 1-sigma factor. Give lab number, kind of material
dated, and whether isotopic fractionation correction has been made.
Example: 3490 ± 90 B.P. (Tx-4107; wood charcoal;
-21.7%). Calibrated dates may be given as (example): 1740 -1330 cal
B.C. (p= .05) (cite calibration program and whether calibrated
at 1 or 2 sigma).
All line drawings and photographs are referred
to as "Figures" and should be numbered consecutively. Figures should
be of high quality and planned for reduction of effective page size,
4 by 6 inches, including caption. Hand lettering is not permitted.
Tables are numbered consecutively and must bear captions. Captions
for figures and tables should be short but telegraphic. They should
be clearly identified with the illustrations and/or tables they refer
to. Instructions for orientation and/or reduction of figures and
tables may be placed on caption sheets.
Two copies of complete manuscripts (including
title, author's name and association, abstract, body, references
cited, figures, tables, and captions) should be sent to: T.R. Kidder,
Department of Anthropology, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA 70118;
