Call for Papers: General guidelines for submissions in PSHEV

August 27, 2021

Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints is an internationally refereed journal that publishes scholarly articles and other materials on the history of the Philippines and its peoples, both in the homeland and overseas. It believes the past is illuminated by historians as well as scholars from other disciplines; at the same time, it prefers ethnographic approaches to the history of the present. It welcomes works that are theoretically informed but not encumbered by jargon. It promotes a comparative and transnational sensibility, and seeks to engage scholars who may not be specialists on the Philippines. Founded in 1953 as Philippine Studies, the journal is published quarterly by the Ateneo de Manila University. All manuscripts submitted to Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints should be original contributions and must not be under consideration for any other publication. We expect manuscripts to range from 7,000 to 10,000 words, including notes and the list of references. Longer articles will be considered in exceptional cases. Because we follow a blind refereeing system, all references to the author’s identity must be removed from the main text, notes, and document properties of the Word file. Please submit a separate page that contains the title of the manuscript; an abstract of about 100 words; a list of five keywords; and a brief description of the author and the author’s institutional affiliation and contact details. We aim to give authors a decision within three to six months, although this target may not always be reached. That decision may be a conditional or unconditional acceptance, a rejection, or an invitation to revise and resubmit. Please submit manuscripts via electronic mail to Submissions can also be made online at or submit via Scholastica.
