Inscriptions is an international, peer-reviewed journal publishing high-quality, original research. We accept academic articles and creative criticism, commentaries, and book reviews. Please see the journal’s Mandate and Scope for information about our focus.
This journal only publishes manuscripts in English, and we only accept manuscripts that have not been submitted elsewhere. For more information about our policies, including submission types, review, publication ethics, indexing and archiving, please see our policies page at https://www.tankebanen.no/inscriptions/index.php/inscriptions/about.
Your submission should be compiled in the following order: title (and subtitle), abstract (up to 150 words), up to five keywords/phrases, main text, references. Figures and captions should be embedded in the submission document, indicating where they should be placed in the text.
Generally Inscriptions publishes academic articles and creative criticism of up to 4,500 words. Commentaries and book reviews have a length of up to 1,500 words.
Texts should be submitted in MS Word or OpenOffice. Many other word processing formats may be acceptable.
Please ensure that author(s) cannot be identified in the submitted manuscript, i.e., that their names are removed from the document and from the document properties, prior to submission.
Please refer to these style guidelines when preparing your submission, rather than any published articles or a sample copy. It is advisable to use 12pt Times New Roman with 2,5 cm/1 inch margins.
We generally follow the Chicago “notes and bibliography” stylesheet. Note, however, that we use different rules for capitalisation (see above). Make sure to include DOI links for references (when available).
