To facilitate editorial work, manuscript should be prepared according to the Turabian Manual for Writers; in cases of disciplinary requirement, manuscript can be prepared in APA format too. As the Turabian Manual for Writers is designed mainly for the English language, contributors can make minor changes when rules do not apply in manuscripts written in Chinese. Here are some of the general principles:

2.      Manuscript should be typewritten in 12-point in MingLiU and double-spaced throughout; quotations should be in KaiU. English and other Roman-script languages should be typed in 12-point Times New Roman.

5.      When proper nouns in foreign languages appear for the first time, Chinese translations are to be followed by the original in parentheses; for names of people birth and decease years should be indicated, for those living only the birth year. For example: 韓德爾(Georg F. Handel, 1685-1759), 沙莉亞荷Kaija Saariaho, 1952生).
