Asian Theatre Journal welcomes articles on Asian theatre and on the relations and mutual influences between Asian and Western theatre. All articles are printed in English. If the contribution is in another language, the original and an English translation are requested. The recommended length for manuscripts is 6,000-8,000 words for articles (including endnotes), 4,000-5,000 words for reports, 800-1,500 for reviews.

Authors are requested to submit a digital copy via e-mail to Siyuan Liu. Manuscript should be typed and double-spaced throughout, including notes and references cited, and in conformance with The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition. Manuscripts should be prepared with endnotes typed in to the text file and follow the author-date (or parenthetical reference) system of documentation. Theatrical forms (noh, wayang wong, xiqu) should be printed in lowercase letters and italicized. Foreign titles (of plays as well as reference works) should be italicized and, wherever possible, provided with an English translation following the original.

As ATJ is a refereed journal, authors are advised to supply their names only on the cover page and not in the text proper. Authors should submit photos and illustrations only after the text has been accepted and not as part of the original file. When they are eventually submitted images are clearly identified and provided with helpful captions as well as photo credits. Please examine a recent issue for examples of ATJ style and format.

All manuscripts and inquiries should be sent to Editor Siyuan Liu. Persons wishing to review books should send their requests to the Book Editor David Jortner.
