Dear list,

We have had many requests for format requirements and a deadline.

Here is a rough guideline.

We would like to receive within one year (absolute deadline: 15
October 2013) papers transmitted in MS Word that are Unicode
compliant, using standard diacritics.  We prefer the Chicago Manual of
Style format, with both annotations and a separate bibliography: no
comprehensive bibliographies, just cited sources. We do not want
run-in annotations, except for text-references. Footnote annotations
should use full bibliographic information in first citation, then
short form (author's last name, short title, page #) for further
citations.  As for paper length, we prefer papers within the range of
3,500-10,000 words.

As for acceptable subject-matter, we will consider all papers that
treat issues that Frits Staal himself had treated

Best wishes,

George Thompson, Richard Payne
