INSTRUCTIONS TO CONTRIBUTORS

CONTRIBUTORS

Potential contributors for Boletin Eclesiastico are reminded that the scope of the Bulletin is ecclesiastical and broadly archival. While we wish to inform the whole Church, our readership is largely clerical.

Boletin Eclesiastico encourages electronic submissions by sending the manuscript as e-mail attachments [using any of the following formats: Rich Text Format (.rtf), or MS Word] to: eccpubli@mnl.ust.edu.ph. Contributions in hard copies and other correspondence may be sent to the editor, Norberto M. Castillo, O.P., c/o Ecclesiastical Publications Office, University of Santo Tomas, España St., 1015 Manila, Philippines. Every submission must be accompanied by the author’s curriculum vitae, which should be included in a file separate from the manuscript.

This bulletin may reprint articles that have already been published somewhere else provided that the necessary permission from the author and publisher is secured. Chronicles of pilgrimages and trips to holy places, and personal reflections may be considered for publication.

In preparing an article or feature for submission, authors should make sure that footnotes are numbered in one sequence throughout the article and are placed at the end of the article. Any convention for citation is accepted as long as it is consistently used all throughout the article. In making cross references to his/her own contribution, the author should cite the section numbers rather than page numbers in order to eliminate inconveniences in the resetting of pages.

Galley-proofs of articles are no longer sent to contributors.

Contributors, especially clerics, who may wish to publish homilies in an issue of the bulletin, should send their contribution not later than two months before the scope of the targeted issue. Please take note that the bulletin publishes homilies of the next two months that immediately follow the coverage of its current issue. Please check a copy of Boletin Eclesiastico de Filipinas for samples of the homilies.
