The Journal of Caribbean History

Editorial Board / Submissions / Subscription Information / Ordering

The Journal of Caribbean History is published (two issues each year) by the Departments of History and Philosophy, The University of the West Indies.

The editors will consider for publication articles on aspects of Caribbean History, including the histories of the mainland territories of North, Central and South America, where these are related to the Caribbean.

Articles in French, Spanish or Dutch will be accepted and may be published in the original language or in translation or in both.  If a translation is made, the author's approval of it will be sought before publication.  In addition to articles, we invite the contribution of research notes and notices of books or theses in Caribbean History currently in progress.

Submission of Articles


Authors should submit their articles on an IBM-compatible diskette, preferably in Word Perfect format, along with two hard copies (print-outs). They should send with each article a brief abstract (not more than 100 words) of its content. They should also submit a short note about themselves, including any academic or institutional affiliation.

Articles in French, Spanish or Dutch will be accepted and may be published either in the original language or in translation or in both. If a translation is made, the author's approval of it will be sought before publication.

In addition to articles, we invite the contribution of research notes and notices of books or theses in Caribbean History currently in progress.

Articles and book reviews (both text and notes) should be typed, double-spaced, and submitted on quarto (8 1/2" x 11") paper. Quotations should be in double inverted commas (quotations within quotations in single inverted commas). Contributors are required to submit both END-NOTES (not footnotes) and a list of REFERENCES.  The endnote format included in most word-processing software should be avoided. Instead, note numbers in the text should be generated manually, using superscript (the same as would be done on a regular typewriter) in the text and ordinary script in the notes at the end of the text.  Ensure that note numbers do not change automatically when notes are added or deleted.  Use only abbreviated references in the endnotes (for example: Smith, Caribbean Approaches, 44).    Archival sources and other references to depositories should carry the reference to the depository first - for example: British National Archives, CO 1111/46, Bathurst to Beard, 12 June 1818.

A full list of references for all articles and books should be placed after the endnotes. 

As far as possible, citations of books should be as follows: surname(s) of author(s), other names, title of book or article, place of publication, publisher, and date of publication. 

Articles should be cited as follows: surname(s) or author(s), other names, title of article (in double inverted commas), title of journal (in italic), volume, number, date and pagination. 

Internet references should be done as far as possible in the same way, but the URL (source site) should also be included.
