Submission Guidelines


Please ensure that the following pointers are in place before submission –

– MLA 8th edition style guide to be followed in the papers. References (footnotes and citations) should also be in MLA style.

– All native language words should be followed by a footnote elucidating upon their translation/definition and usage as we intend for the publication to be accessible to a global audience.

– The word count should within 3500-10000 words for research papers and 750-1200 words for book reviews. (The word count does not include abstract, bio-note, works cited, and keywords).

– Abstract, keywords, works cited, and the complete paper to be attached with all research paper submissions.

– Attach the bio-note of the author with all submissions. You can view sample bio-notes here.

– For the format of Book Reviews, please refer to the Book Review Guidelines.

– Only unpublished works to be submitted.

– If found to be plagiarized, the publication of the work would be cancelled.

 

The editorial process consists of multiple rounds of editing and reviews which take a considerable amount of time. So, though we are happy to receive submissions till the deadline, we appreciate authors sending us early submissions.
