Information and Guidelines for Contributors
(effective May 1996)

 TURKIC LANGUAGES contains articles, comprehensive review articles,
reviews, contributions to discussions (remarks and replies), reports,
surveys of publications, lists of publi-cations received, and
addresses of contributors.

Original contributions. 
 As a rule, only original contributions are accepted. Submission of a
ma-nuscript implies that it has not been previously published and that
it is not under review elsewhere.

 The preferred language of publication is English. Authors not writing
in their mother-tongue are asked to have their manuscripts checked
with respect to language and style.

Length of contributions.
 The suggested length of articles and review articles is 10-20 pages.
Contributions to discussions (remarks and replies) should be limited
to a maximum of four pages. 

Submission of manuscripts.
Authors are requested to send a double-spaced hard copy of any
manuscript submitted for publication. Please ensure that you retain a
copy for yourself. The text should be written on one side of the paper
only, with generous left margins, and with double-spacing throughout,
including footnotes and refer-ences. Manuscripts should have a
separate title page with the author's name and full mailing
add-ress. Whenever possible, the text should also be submitted on a
diskette (preferably Apple Mac-intosh) along with the hard
copy. Manuscripts and diskettes containing contributions accepted for
publication will not be returned. 

Style sheet.
 Contributors are requested to comply with the style sheet.

 It is the author's responsibility to request any permission required
for the use of material owned by others.

 Authors submitting articles and review articles are requested to
include an English abstract of about 100 words.

Referee system.
 The journal uses a referee system in order to ensure a high
standard. The anony-mous reviewers will only read copies of the
contributions without any identification of the author. While they may
give suggestions for improvements, they are not obliged to specify the
motivations for their decision to recommend or not to recommend
publication in each case.

 Authors will receive one copy of the first proof, which, duly
corrected, should be re-turned within the specified time. Changes
against the original manuscript must be avoided or kept to a minimum.

 25 offprints of each contribution will be supplied free of charge.
Authors of articles (including comprehensive review articles) will
also receive a free copy of the volume in which their article appears.
Additional offprints are available at cost and must be ordered in
