Author Guidelines

Scope and originality

Only manuscripts that relate to the scope, focus, and themes of the journal will be considered for peer review.

All submissions must be original contributions that have not been published
elsewhere, in any form. However, the journal welcomes manuscripts based in whole or in part on the author’s previously unpublished doctoral dissertation.

Submission format

Manuscripts must be submitted as Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) or Rich Text
Format (.rtf) files. They must be double spaced throughout (including abstract, block quotes, and references), using 12 pt Times New Roman font.

Length

Only manuscripts that are between 4,000 and 9,000 words (excluding
references) will be considered, unless a longer article has been agreed to by the editor. Shorter articles written by social work practitioners or people who use social work services may also be considered.

Anonymity

All identifying information, including author’s name and references, must be
removed from the article itself.

Authors should cite their own work as, for example, “Author (2003)”, to be replaced (and corresponding references added) if the article proceeds to publication.

If possible, remove your personal information from the Word document itself (this is usually under Preferences - security/remove personal information). 

Cover page

In addition to the anonymized manuscript, authors must submit a supplementary file containing a cover page. This cover page must include the title of the manuscript, author name(s) and affiliation(s), contact information for the corresponding author, biographic information (maximum 75 words for each author) and the exact word count (not including references) of the manuscript. This does not go to the reviewers.

Abstract

An abstract (maximum 250 words) and keywords (maximum 5) must be
included following the cover page.

If relevant - following the keywords please indicate which of the journal’s themes the manuscript best falls under. If the manuscript clearly fits within more than one theme, please list them in order of relevance.

Language

If you are submitting a manuscript that you have written in a language other than your native tongue, please indicate this on the cover page. You are strongly advised to ask a native speaker to check your article prior to submission or consider using a language editing service. Prior to sending the manuscript for review, the editorial team may provide editorial suggestions or feedback to assist authors writing in a second/third language, but they cannot provide extensive assistance.

APA

References must be formatted in APA 7 style. If they are not, your article may be returned to you for formatting before further consideration by the journal.

Manuscripts submitted to Intersectionalities should follow the style
requirements of the APA 7 Publication Manual in all matters of writing style,
grammar and punctuation, page layout, text formatting, and presentation of
references. 

Accepted articles will be copyedited prior to publication but will not receive extensive language editing.
