Call for Papers

Please note that our next deadline for submissions is September 1, 2017. All submissions will be subjected to a double-blind peer review process. All accepted submissions will be included in [Inter]sections No. 20 (2017).

We publish academic papers, as well as relevant reviews and interviews. The language of the journal is English (US), so please edit your submission accordingly. Papers should be between 3,000 and 8,000 words (for book reviews, the suggested length is between 1,000 and 3,000 words), and written in accordance with the 7th edition of the MLA citation style. All submissions should also include an 100-word abstract and a list of 5-7 keywords, a short bio,  and an abstract. Alternately, you may wish to fill in the following submission form:

Name:

Affiliation:

Bio (no more than 100 words):

E-mail address:

Title of Submission:

Abstract (no more than 300 words):

Keywords (5-7):

Please e-mail all submissions, queries, and comments to intersections@americanstudies.ro.

After you send us your submission, you receive a confirmation of receipt, and our peer-reviewing team gets a blind copy for review. Ideally, it should take us no more than 1 month to review your submission, but – depending on the volume of submissions – this may take longer.

 

Please also note the following:

 

  • Papers which have been previously submitted for seminars, workshops and lectures, as well as chapters of diploma papers/dissertations can be submitted as well. However, papers which have already been published will not be accepted unless you have secured permission from the initial publishers.
  • Please note that your submission shall be rejected should it be very negligently written (poor English language skills, sub-standard spelling or punctuation) or should its citation style be so far from the MLA style that it requires an unreasonable amount of editing.
  • Photographs and other images can be inserted in the article, but only if they are relevantly discussed within the body of your paper. Should your paper include images, please make sure the reproduction of the image does not infringe upon current copyright norms and/or secure copyright from the author of the images.

PLAGIARISM

  • [Inter]sections does not condone plagiarism. Should any part of your paper be plagiarized, your paper shall be returned to you and you will be asked not to submit material for publication in [Inter]sections again.
  • We carefully screen all of our submissions for plagiarism by using the academic software provided by the University of Bucharest, www.sistemantiplagiat.ro, as well as other online detection tools, such as DupliChecker and CopyLeaks.
