IDEYA: Journal of the Humanities


Ideya is a refereed journal publishing both scholarly articles on different fields in the humanities and creative works (poetry, fiction, drama, and nonfiction).

Ideya was conceived in 1999 to further critical exchange among eminent and upcoming scholars in the fields of humanities in the Philippines and in the Pacific; to disseminate new forms of knowledge about various literary, artistic, and cultural texts in the Philippines and in the southeast Asian region; and to provide an avenue for the publication of the works of established and young creative writers.

General issue: Articles on history, criticism, and theory that are related to any field of the humanities are considered. Literary works are also accepted-fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and short plays-and may be in other languages provided the work is accompanied by a translation in either English or Filipino. All contributions---creative work or research-are blind refereed.

Papers in either English or Filipino should not exceed 40 typewritten or computer-encoded pages, double-spaced on short bond paper (8.5" x 11"). Submissions should include an abstract, a complete list of works cited, and the author's curriculum vitae on a separate electronic file. Citations and reference lists should follow the style prescribed by the Modem Language Association (MLA, 6th ed.). Contributions can be submitted by email as an MSWord attachment in rich text format (.rtf) or by post in triplicate with an accompanying soft copy in a CD.
