author guidelines

Please read the following guidelines for submission carefully.


File Types


Text format

Please submit the main article text in word processing format, such as:

.doc, .docx (Microsoft Word Document)
.odt (OpenDocument Text Document)


Media in the text:

Please indicate where media (images, videos, audios) should come in the text. Please use ‘Figure X’ in your in-text indications, and label your media files to correspond to this. For example:


In-text indication:

Figure 1: Caption

Figure 2: Caption

File name:

Surname_Figure 1.jpg

Surname_Figure 2.mp3



You can send the media files through any of the following options:


  • Individual file attachments
  • Selections of media files as a .zip or .rar file (useful for larger files)
  • Save files to a GDrive folder and share access to this folder with us via:
  • Send files via Dropbox, WeTransfer, or similar file-sharing platforms


Specifically for videos, you may also upload those in a personal vimeo account and share the link(s) with us.


If applicable, and if you think that this will be helpful to understand the structure of the piece, provide a reduced-sized pdf with the media at the appropriate places. (Please note though that you will still need to submit the piece in a text format.)


Media file formats

We are only able to accept media submissions via the following file types:








.mp4, .m4v (MPEG-4)
.mov (QuickTime)
.wmv (Windows Media Video)

Videos may also be submitted via a Vimeo upload – please include the links where appropriate in your text submission.



Authors are required to provide drafts in the Harvard citation style.


We recommend using the extensive guide produced by Anglia Ruskin University, which offers guidance across a huge range of resources, media, and materials. The guide is available here
