EAR has a worldwide readership base and its subscribers comprise a broad spectrum--from scholars to connoisseurs with varying knowledge of, or interest in, the historical, philosophical, practical or theoretical aspects of an art-related topic.Jargon should be avoided--especially where it concerns contemporary art!Diacritical marks are discouraged but every attempt is made to reproduce original characters and accents in Latin-script languages.
In Chinese and Japanese transliteration and place names, the most recent styles and spelling systems are observed. Exceptions may be made, as they are in Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Urdu, etc, for personal preferences (name before surname, articles, etc.) of people cited in texts, interviewees or authors.The s-suffix is preferred over Americanisms, the day precedes the month and year in dates, the numbers one to nine are written out, except in sums, e g, $1 million.
The following general rules apply:Texts shoud be supplied only by e-mail, by facsimile or post only when email is not available. Maps, other graphics and line drawings can also be supplied in .psd, EPS or TIFF format.
