Guidelines for Submission to Constellations - An International Journal of Critical and Democratic Theory
Constellations has now adopted ScholarOne Manuscripts, for online manuscript submission and peer review. The new system brings with it a whole host of benefits including:
- Quick and easy submission
- Administration centralised and reduced
- Significant decrease in peer review times
From now on all submissions to the journal must be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/constellations. Full instructions and support are available on the site and a user ID and password can be obtained on the first visit. If you require assistance then click the Get Help Now link which appears at the top right of every ScholarOne Manuscripts page. If you cannot submit online, please contact the Submissions Coordinators, Benjamin Schupmann (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Marina Kaneti (email@example.com) in the Editorial Office.
6 East 16th Street
Articles published in constellations are normally not longer than 9,000 words excluding notes, or 10,000 words including notes. Longer articles can be considered only under exceptional circumstances. The Co-Editors reserve the right to reject without review manuscripts that are longer than the stated word limit.
For references, Constellations uses numbered (1,2,3...) endnotes (with superscripted note reference numbers in text body) without a bibliography and follows Chicago Style for the note citations. For examples, please see http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html or Chapter 14 in the Chicago Manual of Style. If manuscripts are not formatted according to the Chicago Manuel of Style at the submission, authors will be asked to format their articles following the acceptance
