It is recommended to include the following in your abstract:
Abstracts should be written in English. Keep your language as clear and concise as possible. Remember that whilst you may be the expert in your field, the reviewers may not be. Try to emphasise the importance of your work - is it a new approach? New material? Please include the conclusions of your research in the abstract.
Spelling can follow either British or American conventions. Try to keep jargon and technical language to a minimum. The abstract should be accessible to non-specialists.
References and citations should generally not appear in the abstract. If you find it necessary to include them, please follow the standards of your field of expertise, but include enough information that the reviewers will be able to find the reference if needed.
Ancient languages in the abstract should follow the standard conventions of their field. However, please remember the form will not facilitate special fonts (e.g. Greek or cuneiform) or italics. In this case, we ask that you use the transliteration conventions of your field.
GeMANE 5 adheres to ASOR guidelines regarding the publication of undocumented antiquities.
