Practical guides for authors

These guides explain what we expect of our authors and their manuscripts, and what our authors can expect from us in return. As a NIAS Press author, the more closely you stick to these recommendations, the more smooth and speedy the publication process. The key aim of our author guidelines is to minimize the need for corrections and changes to your manuscript, saving time and effort both for you and for us. If there are elements here that are problematic for you, please discuss these with your NIAS Press editor.

There was no heater in the apartment where I worked, perhaps because my employer wanted to save on the electricity. The weather should have been warmer, now that Chinese New Year was approaching.
