Volume 5 Issue 1 Now Published

Volume 5 Issue 2
Submissions are now open
Target publication date: November, 2018

Contributors are expected to submit their work in the structure and style of urbane, academic-quality English. The contributors' style of expression must serve to articulate the complex ideas and concepts being brandished, conveying explicit, coherent, unambiguous meaning to scholarly readers. Moreover, manuscripts must have a formal tenor and quality, employing the third-person rather than first-person standpoint (when feasible) while placing emphasis on the research problem being analysed and not on unsubstantiated subjective impressions regarding the issue.

Contributors whose command of English is not at the level outlined above are responsible for having their manuscript corrected by a native-level, English-speaking academic prior to submitting their paper for publication. These standards are non-negotiable and strictly enforced by the editor of the IAFOR Journal of Arts and Humanities.

To submit your article, please first ensure that it is formatted according to the Author Guidelines and then send it to the Editor via the Submit Manuscript page.
