Submission Guidelines

circulation

As the student-run journal of the iSchool, Circulation seeks to open a dialogue for creativity and scholarly discourse across all programs. All students are encouraged to submit their work to the journal for review. The following guidelines will explain the scope of the journal and what the editors will consider when undergoing the review process.

Based on the theme of the issue you are submitting your work for, one of the two following sets of guidelines will apply. Please note that submissions to the fall issue can be creative or academic.

 


 

Creative Submissions. 

Articles, blog posts, essays, poetry, and creative prose may be submitted to Circulation. Written material should not exceed 1800 words. Although the materials will be reviewed, the editing staff ask that authors edit their work for spelling, grammar, and content before submitting. If any photographs or visual aids should be included in the article, please attach these as a separate file.

Visual works such as photographs, fine art, crafts, web design, infographics, data visualizations, and other visual aids may be submitted to Circulation. High-resolution files should be submitted in either .jpg or .png formats. The dimensions should be able to fit an 8.5 x 11 page. For photographs that feature groups or research teams, Circulation requires that individuals confirm a model release for use of their likeness. Permission can be confirmed by email.

Review Process.

The editors of Circulation reserve the right to edit submitted documents for the attributes outlined above. Edited copies will be returned to the original authors during the review process via email. All original work will remain the intellectual property of the owner with due credit in the journal upon publication date.

Academic Submissions.

Papers, literature reviews, and infographics may be submitted to Circulation.  Written work should not exceed 3500 words.  We welcome work that you have authored individually or with a group. In the case of group work, we will need consent of all authors before publication.  Although the materials will be reviewed, the editing staff ask that authors edit their work for spelling, grammar, and content before submitting. Citations should be included in academic writing, as well as any necessary references.

Infographics should be submitted as a separate file at the highest resolution possible.  They should fit on either an 8.5 x 11 or 11 x 17 page.

Review Process.

Academic work will undergo a peer-review process.  The purpose of this is two-fold.  First, we want to choose that work which will be applicable to the largest audience possible.  Second, we want to ensure the highest quality in the pieces we publish.  You may be asked to make revisions based on peer reviewers’ and editors’ comments.

The editors of Circulation reserve the right to edit submitted documents for the attributes outlined above. Edited copies will be returned to the original authors during the review process via email. All original work will remain the intellectual property of the owner with due credit in the magazine upon publication date.
