Submission Guidelines

Submissions must made via email and should be:

  • In electronic format and referenced with a list of cited works at the end if applicable. We can publish most referencing styles including Harvard, Chicago, MLA and APA both inline and as footnotes. If you have any questions about referencing, please contact us
  • If you are submitting text, please do so in a Word Document so we are able to anonymise for reviewing.
  • Previously published work and work being considered for publication will not be accepted.
  • If you intend to submit audio or visual material, please send us an email detailing the proposed format for your submission so we can see how best to facilitate 
  • We are prepared to be flexible with word counts but we would expect academic articles to be between 4000 and 7000 words and critical commentaries around 2000 words.

Please include the following with your submission:

  • A short (50 words max) biography of yourself
  • An abstract for the piece of between 100 and 250 words
