Hūlili Manuscript Guidelines

Hūlili welcomes manuscripts in English or in ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i (Hawaiian language) from both established and emerging scholars involved in research on Hawaiian well-being from diverse fields such as economics, education, family resources, government, health, history, natural resource management, psychology, religion, sociology, and so forth. We welcome manuscripts with an empirical focus as well as contributions at the cutting edge of theoretical debates and practice in these fields.

Submission Guidelines:

Prior to submission, manuscripts should be checked for content, editorial style, and consistency in citations of references, tables, and figures. Manuscripts will be returned for revision at the discretion of the editors.

  • Submit manuscripts via email to spire@ksbe.edu as a MS Word document.
  • Alternatively, mail manuscripts to Hūlili, Kamehameha Schools, 567 South King Street, Suite 400, Honolulu, Hawai‘i 96813. Send one hard copy and an electronic file on CD.
  • Submit any photos and charts as 300 dpi tiff files.

Manuscript Guidelines:

Manuscripts typically must not be previously published or be under consideration with another publication. The editorial board may make exceptions for published materials that are central to the knowledge base of Hawaiian well-being and that would otherwise have limited distribution.

  • While there is no page limit for articles, content should be concise and relevant.
  • Provide an abstract of approximately 120 words.
  • Provide a title page with:
    • Article title
    • Author’s name
    • Author’s affiliation
    • Suggested running head (less than 50 characters and spaces)
    • Author’s complete mailing address
    • Author’s email
    • Author’s brief bio
  • Use a Hawaiian font to display proper diacritical markings (‘okina and kahakō) in all text, charts, endnotes, citations, and appendices.
  • Use style consistent with the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th Edition).
  • Provide appropriate citations, including source citations for all tables, charts, and figures.
  • Number all figures and tables in consecutive series (with Arabic numerals) and include citations in the text.
  • Include a complete and accurate reference list at the end of the manuscript. References should be cited in text by name and year.
  • Use endnotes only when necessary. Endnotes should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals and added at the end of the manuscript after the references.

Authors submitting articles agree to allow Kamehameha Schools to publish the articles digitally as well as in print form. Kamehameha Schools fully honors the intellectual rights of all contributors.
