|Personal communication||pers. comm.|
Initials in personal names should be separated by full-stops with spaces, e.g. A. J. Vijay, but no full-stop should be used for upper-case abbreviations, e.g. USA, RCAHMS
Quotes should be placed in normal text and within double quotation marks
Short quotes should be placed within the text, longer quotes should be indented
Compass points should be hyphenated, e.g. north-west, south-southeast
n-dashes (–) should be used to represent a range, e.g. 1342-1350 BC, and in page spans 45-50
The Journal uses BC/AD not BCE/CE.
AD comes before the date, BC after, except when using a century name, e.g.
- 3500 BC
- AD 1066
- tenth century AD
Dates in text should be given as (number) (month) (year), no ordinals: e.g. 30 January 2010. Dates should be hyphenated when used adjectivally, e.g. nineteenth-century object, but not in noun phrases, e.g. the early nineteenth century.
- Abbreviations should end in a full-stop e.g. no. (number), fig. (figure), pl. (plate)
- Contractions do not require a full-stop, e.g. St, Dr, Mr, Mrs
- Measurements should be abbreviated and follow the number without a space and without full-stops, e.g. 100km, 56mm (millimetres should be used in preference to centimetres)
- Areas should be written as, e.g. 24m²
- Per cent is two words but authors may use the symbol (%) where it appears frequently, please be consistent
- Radiocarbon, when not spelled out should be presented as 14C
Use capitals sparingly: initials and proper names only, e.g. the Near East, but eastern England. Standard archaeological periods are capitalised, e.g. Neolithic, Mesolithic.
