Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in Microsoft Word document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- The text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
Research papers should be a maximum of 8,000 words excluding appendices. In cases of research involving human subjects, research ethics approval should be disclosed in the manuscript text. We are particularly interested in research that refrains from universalizing and that gives careful consideration to any cultural histories, practicalities, and ideologies at play. Authors are called upon to take a critical approach to their subject matter, paying close attention to power dynamics.
Make a new submission to the Research Papers section.
Critical Program Reviews
Critical program reviews should be a maximum of 3000 words excluding appendices. Critical program reviews should provide fully contextualized examinations of program design and/or outcomes with careful attention to matters of power dynamics. SKRIB is particularly interested in transnational multi-institutional collaborations.
