Instructions for authors

Sborník Národního muzea v Praze, řada A - historie

Instructions to manuscript contributors to the Sborník Národního muzea v Praze, řada A – historie (Acta Musei nationalis Pragae, series A – historia):
- The manuscript, which should be sufficient for an entire double number (“single numbers” are issued only exceptionally), should ideally – in order to respect the contract between the NM and the printer – be of a length of 155 pages of classic typescript, i.e. approx. 280,000 characters including spaces (one ‘normal/standard page’ is taken here to be 1800 characters, or 30 lines of 60 characters, inclusive of spaces). In its final form it will comprise some 56 printed pages of text. To this it is possible to append 8 pages of illustrations printed on chalk-coated paper. Drawings, diagrams etc. are printed between the text, on standard paper. Should the manuscript be longer, it must exceptionally be published as a triple or quadruple number of the Sborník; if on the other hand the manuscript is only half length, it may exceptionally be possible to publish it as a single number.
- Manuscripts should be submitted in MS Word format, together with a version printed on paper. The printed form need not take the format of standard typescript pages.
- The author is responsible for obtaining the copyrights and reproduction rights for any illustrations.
- Where emphasis is required, bold typefaces, underlining, italics etc. may be used. The author’s name and the title of the work may be written in capitals, section headings in bold and quotations in italics.
- It is recommended that notes be indicated by use of superscript (superscript1), and provided after the text. Please do not insert them ‘beneath the line’ on the same page as they appear.
- Words should not be typed single spaces; punctuation marks (with the exception of hyphens) should not be preceded by a space, but must be followed by one.
- New paragraphs should be indicated by a space (or by 3-4 character indentation), but written from the edge. The standard void for printing will be adjusted during the pre-print preparation phase.
- Illustrations, whether photographic or drawn, must be of printing quality. Illustrations are printed in black and white; should there exceptionally be a need to print in colour, then the author must arrange for the additional financing required, e.g. by obtaining a sponsor. Illustrations may be supplied either as standard photographs and original drawings, or in digital form.
- Illustrations and tables must be numbered, the appropriate number appearing on the reverse of the original (or on the cover if on CD).
- Text copy for the creation of a résumé should be supplied, along with an indication of the preferred language into which it should be translated.
- Note numbering should appear at the end of the sentence if the note relates to the sentence as a whole, or as appropriate in the middle of the sentence if the note relates only to a single word or section of text. Within the annotation system it is possible to refer to abbreviated bibliographic data, usually with the author’s surname in capitals, year of publication and page reference, e.g.: NOVÁK 1989, pp11-12, or LEXIKON 1956, p34.
- If the author has no need of other (e.g. explanatory or commentary) notes, then notes referencing literature (as commonly used by, e.g., archaeologists), then instead of the standard notation system such bibliographic references may instead be made in brackets. In order that these references not interrupt the text unduly, it is in such cases more appropriate to write the abbreviated bibliographic reference in lower case letters and italics, e.g.: (Novák 1989, pp11-12, or Lexikon 1956, p34).
- It is recommended that the list of literature used and cited is ordered alphabetically by the abbreviated form selected for citations.

Illustration captions should be provided in two versions: 1) Lengthier captions that include a description of the object depicted, or authorship, place and date of creation, the material or dimensions, the owner or inventory number, and the author of the photograph. These captions will be printed in an overview list, one after another. 2) Very brief captions containing in just a few words only the essential information relating to the illustration. These captions will be printed beneath the reproduced illustrations.
