Author Guidelines

ARTICLES

 NJOLAS considers manuscripts on the strict condition that they have not already been published elsewhere or are not under consideration for publication or in print elsewhere.

 NJOLAS only accepts manuscripts in English.

 Manuscripts should be between 6,000 and 10,000 words (including footnotes and references).

 All manuscripts must be anonymized.

 Abstracts of 150 words are required for all manuscripts submitted.

 Each submitted paper must have 3 to 5 keywords.

 Research sponsorship (e.g. by research councils, government departments and agencies, etc.) must be declared.

 Manuscripts should adhere to the NJOLAS style guide .

 Authors are responsible for obtaining the necessary permission from copyright holders for the use of artwork and illustrations.

All included figures should be in TIFF-format.

For quotations, please use double quotation marks. Please also note that long quotations should be indented without quotation marks.

 

SUBMITTING YOUR MANUSCRIPT

Manuscripts must be submitted through the NJOLAS electronic submission system. For instructions, please follow this manual.

 Before entering the NJOLAS electronic submission system, be prepared to submit the following:

 

1. A title page. This should include your name, affiliation and contact information as well as funding details and a short author biography (no more than 80 words). Upload this under Article Component 'Other'.

 2. The article (title and text only).

 3. An abstract of maximum 150 words (this is pasted into a box on one of the screens).

 4. 3-5 keywords (this is pasted into a box on one of the screens).

 

The submission system also has a box where authors can paste (or type in) information to introduce or re-introduce their work to the editors.

To ensure a double-blind review process, no documentation with any personal identification will be sent to referees and referees' names will be kept confidential to the author.

Submitted articles are first reviewed by the editors to ensure that they fit within the scope of the journal. If so, they will be sent out for double blind peer review. Articles are typically sent to two reviewers. Reviewers are asked to comment on the suitability of the article for publication in the journal, and to recommend whether the article should be accepted in its current form, accepted subject to specified revisions, substantially revised and resubmitted, or rejected. The review process can be expected to take 8-12 weeks. Reviewers are selected based on their expertise in the relevant area and availability.
