The Contemporary Pacific welcomes scholarly articles on contemporary issues of concern in the Pacific Islands. Articles on such issues as urbanization, culture change, decolonization, dependency, and social and health problems are sought, along with articles addressing such topics as cultural movements, ethnic relations, contemporary history, regional cooperation, migration, population pressure, protection of the environment, and strategic and security concerns. Articles relating to earlier periods in Pacific Islands history, on other regions, or of a more theoretical nature, will be considered if they help to illuminate contemporary issues and concerns within the region. All articles published in the journal are refereed. The Editorial Board encourages articles that draw on the literature of more than one discipline.

Submissions must be original works not previously published and not under consideration or scheduled for publication by another publisher. Manuscripts should be 8,000 to 10,000 words, or no more than 40 double-spaced pages, including references. Editorial style follows the 15th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2003), as implemented in current issues of The Contemporary Pacific. Spelling follows Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (11th ed, 2003).

Follow the detailed TCP Style Guide and Manuscript Preparation document (PDF) and consult the UH Press Journals Department Publishing Guidelines.
