Article Submission Policy
Scholarly research articles should not exceed 10,000 words in length, unless prior approval has been granted by the editor. Within that upper limit, articles should be substantial pieces of analysis and criticism that demonstrate thoughtful reflection, evaluation, and embody a critical and conceptual argument in which various angles of the question are explored in fairness and at length. Articles should conform to relevant standards of disciplinary rigour and be ready to pass a double-blind peer review process, including having all information that could identify the author(s) removed from the text body and the document’s file properties. Articles must have an abstract. Abstracts should be no more than 300 words in length and entered directly into the online submission portal’s metadata along with any keywords, rather than including them in the submission document itself.
Submission of a manuscript implies the work is previously unpublished and not simultaneously under consideration for publication elsewhere.
