Romani Studies
(continuing Journal of the Gypsy Lore Society)
Romani Studies welcomes articles in all scholarly disciplines dealing
with any aspect of the cultures of groups traditionally known as
Roma/Gypsies as well as those of traveler or  peripatetic groups.
Reviews of books and audiovisual materials are also published. The
groups covered include, for instance, those referring to themselves as
Ludar, Rom, Roma, Romanichels, Romnichels, Sinti, Travelers, or
Travellers.  Fields covered include anthropology, art, folklore,
history, linguistics, literature, political science, sociology, and
their various branches.  The views expressed in the journal are those
of the authors and not necessarily those of the Gypsy Lore Society,
which publishes the journal, or its officers. Article manuscripts are
generally evaluated by the editor and two anonymous referees.  Authors
will be notified when a decision has been made to accept or reject a
manuscript.  Rejection may be outright or with the possibility of
revision and resubmission for a new evaluation.  A manuscript
submitted to the journal should not be under consideration by any
other journal at the same time or have been published elsewhere.
Reviews and review articles are solicited by the editor.  Persons who
wish to review particular books should contact the editor.
English is the publication language of the journal; linguistic data
cited should of course be in the original language.  Subject to
financial limitations and the availability of translators, the editor
might consider articles submitted in languages other than English.
Quotations in the texts of articles should be translated into English
and the original text of the quotation should be supplied for
editorial purposes.
Three copies of papers are required for review.  As far as possible
the author(s) should not be identified on the copy to be sent to
referees. Manuscripts generally should not exceed 40 double-spaced
pages. Manuscripts, including notes, quotations, and lists of
references cited, should be double-spaced on one side only of A4 or 8
1/2 x 11-inch paper. Any standard format for style, notes, and
references is suitable for initial editorial consideration.  Authors
of accepted articles will be required to submit copyiesconforming with
journal style, summarized below.
Each article should include an abstract of 100-150 words summarizing
the essential points and findings of the paper, as well as up to ten
keywords for indexing purposes.  An author's statement, including
present affiliation and research acknowledgments, must be included
with each manuscript on a separate page.
Style.  The journal follows a modified form of the latest version of
American Anthropologist style (AA 92:1131-1134).  For papers making
extensive use of manuscript sources, the style followed by the History
of Anthropology series (University of Wisconsin Press) is a good
guide. Copies of the complete style sheets may be obtained from the
editor; please enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope.  Refer to
the Chicago Manual of Style, latest edition, in matters of punctuation
and usage.
Acknowledgments follow the text, and constitute the first paragraph of
Notes, without a note number. The title should never be footnoted.
Footnotes appear as "Notes" at the end of articles, numbered
consecutively throughout the paper and typed on a separate sheet of
paper.  Include footnote material in the text wherever possible.
References to literature are carried within the text in parentheses
with the author's last name, the year of original publication, and
page, e.g. (Kroeber 1948:205), or, if an author is mentioned in the
text, merely by date and page, e.g. (1948:205). The complete list of
references cited should be typed on a separate page; the list of
references should not include any publications not cited in the text.
The format for references should be consistent with the following
examples. Note that the full first names of authors (not merely
initials) should be given.
Use hanging indentation for References cited (not able to be
reproduced in the electronic version of the style sheet).
