KISWAHILI ni jarida la kimataifa la taaluma ya Lugha, Isimu na Fasihi ya Kiswahili. Jukumu lake kuu ni kukusanya na kusambaza maarifa yanayohusu Lugha, Isimu na Fasihi ya Kiswahili yaliyokitwa katika utafiti mpevu.

 

Jarida huchapishwa mara moja kwa mwaka. Tunapokea makala yaliyoandikwa kwa Kiswahili na Kiingereza yakiwa yameambatana na ikisiri fupi inayoeleweka. Makala yapigwe chapa kwenye karatasi za A4, mistari ikitengwa kwa kipimo cha nafasi mbili. Upande mmoja tu wa katarasi utumiwe.

 

Mwandishi awasilishe kwa Mhariri nakala tatu ngumu za muswada wake pamoja na nakala moja laini inayotangamana na Word 97-2003 au Word 2007. Ukurasa wa kwanza wa makala uonyeshe jina la makala, jina kamili la mwandishi wa makala (ikiwa ni pamoja na wadhifa wake) na anwani yake.

 

Ukurasa wa pili uonyeshe jina la makala na ufupisho wa makala kwa maneno yasiyodizi 300.

Unapotaja marejeo katika matini, taja jina la mwisho la mwandishi likifuatiwa, katika mabano, na mwaka wa chapisho hilo na kurasa zilizorejelewa, k.m. Mwanza (1985:22). Kwenye orodha ya marejeo au bibliografia majina ya warejewa yapangwe kialfabeti, ukianza na jina la mwisho la mwandishi na kufuatia na mwaka wa kuchapishwa katika mabano (k.m. Massamba, D.P.B. (1982)……).

 

Tanbihi zote ziwekewe namba na zitumike pale tu inapobidi. Maelezo ya tanbihi yatolewe kwenye ukurasa wa peke yake kufuatia mwisho wa makala, yaani kabla ya kuorodhesha marejeo.

 

Makala yatatathminiwa na walau wasomaji wawili na yatarejeshwa kwa mwandishi pale tu ambapo gharama za usafirishaji zimelipwa. Waandishi ambao makala yao yatakubaliwa kuchapishwa watapatiwa nakala moja ya Jarida lenye makala yao pamoja na malopoo kumi ya makala.

 

TANBIHI

Inapotokea kwamba kutokana na sababu zilizo nje ya uwezo wetu tukashindwa  kutoa juzuu lolote la jarida hili katika mfululizo wake wa kawaida jitihada zitafanywa  kuhakikisha kwamba linatolewa Toleo Maalumu mapema iwezekanavyo  litakalozingatia makala yote yaliyokuwa yamekusudiwa kutolewa katika jarida hilo ambalo lilikuwa limechelewa kutolewa.
