Instructions for authors

Manuscripts must be original works and not currently under consideration in another journal. They must have not been published previously, even in part.

Authors preferred settings such as titles, subtitles, paragraphs, character type, spacing, place and lay-out of illustrations, should appear in the margin text. A 10-line abstract in French and another of similar length in English as well as a list of keywords should be included. Articles should comprise 50,000 characters and 5-6 pages of illustrations. The text of a information note should not be more than 25,000 fonts, a discussion of an article previously published in Paléorient not more than 10,000, and 6,000 for a book review.

Paleorient is a juried journal. All manuscripts will be reviewed by the editors and by three or more external reviewers (specialists or not of the field). If reviewers remarks are such that important changes in the text are necessary, before being accepted or refused by the Editorial Committee, the revised manuscript must be reviewed by the same readers.

The work address of the authors and copyrights must be included (artists, photographs, cartographers, etc.). The texts must be written in good French or English. For the authors who do not have French or English as a native language, their texts must be polished by a French or English native language scholar before being sent to Paléorient office. A manuscript with style problems will be mailed back to the authors.

After final acceptance of the article a new version, which includes corrections in accordance with the suggestions made by the editorial committee, must be supplied by the author(s).

One set of proofs in pdf format will be sent by e-mail to the author or corresponding author. As proofs are not drafts, no changes in nor additions to the edited manuscript can be allowed. Only typesetting/editing should be checked. The corrected manuscript should be sent back to Paléorient office as soon as possible. If corrections are not communicated in time Paléorient and the Publisher CNRS éditions reserve the right to proceed with publication.

We distinguish between two kinds of illustrations: tables and figures. The required font in both is Arial, with font 7.

For all the illustrations check: that the spelling of the names are identical to the ones in the text; that all the names or words will be readable when the figures are reduced (to be readable, the minimum font must be 6 points).

Please write captions for the illustrations in a separate Word file. Illustrations are normally published in black and white. However, if you wish to publish illustrations in colour you will need to make a special request to the editor. You must send a high-quality illustrations suitable for printing. Each illustration must be prepared according to the journal’s size that is 18.2 cm x 20 cm for a full-page. For a single column, the size of the illustration must be less than 8.8 cm wide. It is possible to submit a size in-between such as 12 or 14 cm wide.

In order to prevent damage to illustrations please avoid compresing files in .jpg.

You may send illustrations by e-mail (if less than 3 Mo) or by using the files transfer of the MAE if less than 1 Go (http://www.mae.u-paris10. fr/intranet/).

Tables: tables and graphs

Tables should be submitted as Word files (or InDesign or Excel ones) and graphs should be in Illustrator (or Word or Excel). Powerpoint file or in .tiff formats are not acceptable.

Figures: photo, plate, map, drawing

Orientation, scale, captions and frames on each figure must be specified. For the maps, the North must be indicated. Digitization: line drawings such as plans, flint or ceramic sketches must be scanned in 1200 dpi and registered in .tiff. Photos or other documents must be scanned in 300 dpi, and 600 dpi for combination haftones (photographs that also contain line art such as labelling or thin lines - level lines). Before sending the images, check the resolution (300 dpi at least) for the print. If you work with Illustrator, you must not do an image vectoring of the text, and you must register in .ai or .eps. You must not register a bitmapped document.
