Check out revised scope and submission information


MANUSYA has slightly revised the scope and submission requirements in keeping with our current situation and academic direction. The highlights are;

1. Our focus is now on history, philosophy, religion, language, culture, literature, media, and arts of Southeast Asian and neighboring regions. However, we still welcome submissions that examine broader phenomena with implications for Southeast Asia or from Southeast Asian perspectives.

2. The length of the submission should not exceed 7,000 words (or 14 A4 pages single-spaced in a 12-point font), including the footnotes and references. 

Please check out our revised aim and scope at, and our new submission guidelines for authors at
