Please consider the following criteria:

  • The title of the article submitted to Teosofia should reflect a specific focus of study, based on research--be they library or fieldwork research--and thus the author can have a general statement and sub-title specifically confining the scope of study
  • The article submitted should be based on research--be it library or field work or other kinds of research
  • The article should present bibliography which entails primary sources--books, manuscripts, interviews, or observation--and updated secondary sources from books or peer reviewed journals
  • The article should contain an argument/thesis/finding which contributes to scholarly discussion in a field of study which should clearly be mentioned and systematically presented in abstract, content, and conclusion
  • The article should use good English and Arabic, or at least can be understood; the author is fully responsible for fixing and editing English and Arabic; the copy editor of Teosofia is responsible only for minor typos and understandable grammatical errors
  • The style and format, including the structure of article, footnotes, bibliography, should follow those of Teosofia
  • The template of Teosofia article in word document format is available for download here (website)

 

NOTE: It is suggested the use of a reference manager at styling the footnote and the bibliography, such as Zotero, Mendeley, et cetera.
