be paginated with no other header or footer information.

Provide sufficient information for
readers to look up your citations. Use a short title for repeated
citations of the same work: Noguchi, “Keynes seisaku.” Ibid. may be
used, but loc. cit., op cit., and passim may not.
Use of Japanese
Japanese names and terms should follow Hepburn romanization (chi, sho,
etc.). Use the macron (ō) to indicate all long vowels except ii (except
in familiar place names and recent reign names). Only if your software
cannot produce macrons is an alternative diacritic (such as ô or õ)
acceptable. Use n rather than m before syllables beginning with m, b,
and p (such as shinbun).
Japanese names should be written with the family name first, unless the
person usually uses Western name order in Western-language publications.
Quotations and poetry cited in Japanese should appear in quotation marks
and not be italicized. Treat as for any foreign language.
Please consult Webster’s Dictionary for preferred spellings. Centuries
are spelled out: sixteenth, seventeenth, etc. Whole numbers of ten or
less should be spelled out. Use figures when citing many numbers or
numbers larger than ten. “Periods and commas should be placed within
quotations marks.” Per cent is two words. Dates follow U.S. convention:
April 15, 2008. Names of Japanese organizations and titles of Japanese
works should appear in romanized Japanese (with English translations
provided in parentheses).
