As 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 file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-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 accuracy of citations, including names, titles, dates, page numbers, and quotations, is the responsibility of the author. All information should be carefully verified before a contribution is submitted.

Information for authors

1. Articles should be submitted here for consideration. You will be informed of IASA's intention to review the article no more than two weeks after your submission.

2. Soft copy as a .doc or .rtf or .txt file should be submitted with minimal formatting.

3. Illustrations (photographs, diagrams, tables, maps, etc) may be submitted as low resolution files placed in the file or sent separately. If the article is accepted for publication, high resolution copies will be required and should be sent as separate documents. All illustrations should include captions with all necessary credits and acknowledgments at the time of submission.

4. Use in-text citations that adhere to the Harvard Referencing System (quick review here: http://www.citethisforme.com/harvard-referencing).

5. For notes containing textual commentary that do not involve references, use footnotes, not endnotes.

6. The IASA Journal only accepts original research (i.e., not previously published, not being considered for publication elsewhere, and not containing text recycling including translated text from a prior publication). Authors are encouraged to develop conference presentations into more detailed accounts and/or arguments for publication in the journal. 

7. Abstracts (maximum 250 words each) must be included with each submission and may be in French, German, Spanish, or English. Please also include 3-5 keywords on the main topics of your submission following the abstract.
