Target Publication: Friday September 29, 2023

Please read the following before submitting a manuscript.

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.

The IAFOR Journal of Arts & Humanities ONLY publishes original articles on aspects of the arts and humanities; that is to say, works that study and document the varied ways in which people methodise and endeavour to decipher the human experience. We ONLY welcome articles that take a diagnostic approach to the assumptions that have long predisposed the study of literature, philosophy, art, history, religion, music and language.

Submissions should be original, previously unpublished papers which are not under consideration for publication in any other journal. Please note that papers already submitted to or published in IAFOR Conference Proceedings (or other Conference Proceedings) are not accepted for publication in any of IAFOR’s journals.

Submissions must conform to the journal submission guidelines. All papers are reviewed equally according to standard peer review processes, regardless of whether or not the authors have attended a related IAFOR conference and every submission is checked with iThenticate anti-plagiarism software upon receipt.
