All original submissions undergo peer review by fellow students of global history. After a submission is accepted for publication, it will be copy-edited and prepared for print. All full texts and abstracts are examined by native speakers. Authors then receive a final, edited version in PDF format, in which any changes made to the original manuscript, as well as suggestions and inquiries, are highlighted. Authors are expected to carefully review this PDF document, which corresponds to the page proofs of traditional print publishing, make corrections where appropriate, and finally, to issue approval for the publication of the text.

Author’s Duties

Authors should submit original work. Data and evidence should be accurately cited and properly represented. Fraudulent or intentionally inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and will not be tolerated. In general, authors should not submit work that has already been published elsewhere. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time is considered unethical. If the author finds a significant error in the published work, we ask that they notify the journal’s editors and work with the editorial staff in rectifying the problem.

Authors who publish with this journal agree to the following terms:

Firstly, authors retain copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. This allows others to share the work as long as they acknowledge its authorship and initial publication in this journal. Secondly, authors are able to enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgement of its initial publication in this journal. Thirdly, authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) prior to and during the submission process, as it can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work (See The Effect of Open Access).

The journal publishes texts in English only with vernacular scripts in the original and transcription included wherever appropriate. We accept both UK and US spelling, as long as the text is consistent. Provided the editors agree, contributions accepted for publication may also be supplied in languages other than English in addition to the version already approved for publication.

We ask that all images and other digital resources be submitted as separate supplementary files, with a note in the text indicating where they should go during the uploading process. Please note that authors are responsible for obtaining copyright-clearance on all reproduced materials.

This journal follows the 'notes and bibliography system' of The Chicago Manual of Style citation format, an overview of which can be found here. We do not publish a bibliography at the end of an article, all necessary bibliographical information must be included in the footnotes. Authors should make sure that the bibliographical information in the footnotes does not follow the the slightly different format of the 'notes and bibliography system' for a full bibliography at the end of an article. 


Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  2. The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are included in a separate supplementary document.
  5. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which can be found above.
