Author Guidelines

AM Journal of Art and Media Studies uses an open-source software for the management of peer-reviewed academic journals, the Open Journal System, created by the Public Knowledge Project, released under the GNU General Public License. Instructions for the submission using OJS are available here: https://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php?title=OJS_Documentation

Manuscripts and accompanying material must be submitted through the online manuscript submission system or sent by e-mail to: amjournal@outlook.com.

By submitting a manuscript authors warrant that their contribution to the Journal is their original work, that it has not been published before, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities at the institution where the work was carried out.

Authors are exclusively responsible for the contents of their submissions, and must make sure that they have permission from all involved parties to make the data public.

Authors wishing to include figures that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright holder(s) and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.

Authors must make sure that only contributors who have significantly contributed to the submission are listed as authors and, conversely, that all contributors who have significantly contributed to the submission are listed as authors. Fore more author's responsibilities please see Editorial Policy: Author's Responsibilities.

Manuscripts are pre-evaluated at the Editorial in order to check whether they meet the basic publishing requirements and quality standards. Only those contributions which conform to the following instructions can be accepted for peer-review. Otherwise, the manuscripts shall be returned to the authors with observations, comments and annotations. Please see Peer Review Process.


Manuscript preparation

Original scholarly papers (sections Main Topic and Beyond the Main Topic) should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words. Book review articles should be about 1,000 words. Artist Portfolio should contain 4 pages with illustrations and 1,500 words of text.

Authors must follow the instructions for authors strictly, failing which the manuscripts would be rejected without review.

The manuscript should be written in MS Word in .doc or .doc.x format, in Times New Roman font, font size 12 with 1.5 line-spaced text.

The manuscript (sections Main Topic and Beyond the Main Topic) should contain the title, keywords (5 to 8 words or phrases) and abstract (between 100 and 250 words) and list of references. Do not include citations in the Abstract. Keywords should be relevant to the topic and content of the paper. An accurate list of keywords will ensure correct indexing of the paper in referential periodicals and databases.

All manuscripts should be also provided with: authors’ names, affiliations (city and state of workplace) and e-mail addresses of the corresponding author.

The authors should send their short biography (up to 150 words per author) with information about profession, carrier, workplace and year of birth.

Photos, drawings and other illustrations should be of good quality. Please, do not include photos, tables and other illustrations in the manuscript. They should be submitted as separate files. Visual examples must have permission from author, photographer or owner of the rights. Visual examples must be technically prepared so as not to require additional interventions: format .jpg or .tiff; resolution higher than 300 dpi. Visual examples are additions to the main text and need to be clearly marked: example 1, etc. Please do not supply files that are too low in resolution as well files that are optimized for screen use (e.g., GIF, BMP, PICT, WPG), these typically have a low number of pixels and limited set of colors.
