Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission must be as a Microsoft Word file. The style must be Chicago, author-date style, as recommended by the American Anthropological Association.
The submission must be written in accessible but scholarly English. A general knowledge of the field of anthropology is assumed. Theological terms and ideas can be introduced, but should be explained in clear, ordinary language.
The author profile must be completed or updated online at the OKH Journal website. Contact information will be published with the submission if accepted for publication. It will not be used for any other purpose or passed on to any other party.
- A full-length article must be 6,000 - 9,000 words long, exclusive of the abstract, keywords, reference list, endnotes, and appendices.
Where there is original research being presented, evidence must be given that the studies were conducted in accordance with ethical research standards (eg., have Institutional Review Board approval).
All necessary permissions (such as for quoted text of more than 500 words) must be obtained and paid for by the author.
For full length articles, a 100-150 word abstract of the article must be submitted along with the manuscript. The abstract should be carefully edited and reworked for accuracy and completeness.
For full length articles, 5-7 keywords must be provided along with the abstract. The keywords should be chosen carefully as they will be influential in readers' ability to locate the article on the internet. The abstract and keywords should be placed on the first page of the article itself.
