Notes for the Authors



1. General scope. The Journal of the Israel Prehistoric Society (JIPS) covers all fields of research pertaining to the prehistory and proto-history of the southern Levant, up to the end of the Bronze Age. Papers covering later periods will be considered if they are of special interest (for instance, if they present research methods applicable also to prehistoric periods).

2. Submission of manuscripts. All materials for publication should be submitted to Prof. Dani Nadel (Department of Archaeology, the University of Haifa, Haifa 31905, Israel) as an electronic file ( Books for review should also be sent to the same address.

3. Format. Manuscripts should be typed in Word, using double space. Each manuscript should include, as one file:

        A title page with the title, names of all authors, their academic addresses, an abstract and 3-5 keywords.

        A page with a Hebrew summary.

        The text.



        Figures, organized at the end of the paper by their order of appearance. The captions should be provided as one list, on a separate page before the figures.

        Tables, organized at the end of the paper by their order of appearance. The captions should be provided as one list, on a separate page before the tables.

4. Language. Papers will be published in English with Hebrew summaries.

5. References.  References should be cited in the text by the author's name and date (e.g. Rak 1993). If more than one paper is cited, the references should be listed alphabetically (e.g. Alony 1979; Kuhn and Bar-Yosef 1999: 44). Papers co-authored by more than two writers should be cited using the first author's name, followed by et al. (e.g., WoldeGabriel et al. 2001). Several works by the same author should be separated by a comma (e.g., Bar-Yosef 1994, 1997, 1998a, b). References should be listed alphabetically according to the author's name, date of publication, title, etc., at the end of the paper, thus:

6. Style. All pages, beginning with the title page and including tables and figures, should be numbered consecutively. Words in language foreign to the main body of text should appear in italics (e.g., i.e., ibid, et al., ca., etc.). Names of all manuscript authors will be written in capital letters and their academic addresses given below, numbered according to the order of authors.

7. Hierarchy of titles. Main titles will be written in capital letters, aligned to the left (e.g. ABSTRACT, METHODOLOGY, etc.). Second level titles will be written in a separate line, in bold letters, aligned to the left (e.g. The flint assemblage). Third level titles will be written in a separate line, in italics, aligned to the left (e.g. Raw materials).

8. Illustrations. Illustrations whether photographs or drawings, should be numbered consecutively in their order of mention in the text. The size of the figures will not exceed 18X15 cm. Captions should be listed on a separate page. The figures, when included in the submitted file, can be reduced to 150 dpi. The high quality photographs and line drawings will be submitted separately, once the paper was accepted. Digital graphic files (such as artwork and diagrams) saved in TIFF format are preferred. Line drawings should be saved as bitmap at 600 dpi, pictures should be saved as grayscale at 600 dpi. The name of the file should be the same as it appears in the text (e.g., Fig. 7 should be named Fig. 7).

9. Abstracts. A short abstract should be submitted with the paper (up to 300 words).

10. Hebrew Summary. Papers should be submitted with a Hebrew summary, which should be in the order of up to 5% of the length of the original paper. The Hebrew summaries will be published at the end of the issue in which the full papers appear. Summaries may also be submitted in English for translation.
