Call for Submissions

The editorial impulse of the Interalia Magazine lies in its depth of open inquiry, commitment to interdisciplinary thought, and an emphasis on exploring connections between the arts, sciences and consciousness.

We appreciate the opportunity to consider solicited and unsolicited articles (written and visual), poetry, videos that are resonant with the Interalia Magazine’s focus on art, science and consciousness. 

WRITTEN ARTICLES

Please submit your written articles in a format that can be read by Microsoft Word.  Feel free to include a cover letter, but they are not necessary. Please do include a short bio.

We do consider previously published work, but would prefer new and original work. Simultaneous submissions are welcome and encouraged, but if your work is accepted elsewhere, please let us know immediately.

All texts must be submitted in English. Authors not fluent in English should write in their native language and then have the text professionally translated before submitting it.

By submitting, you verify that you are the Author of the submitted work, and that the Author grants Rights to the Interalia Magazine for publication. Rights revert to the Author upon publication.

All images included in the submission article are the responsibility of the Author.  It is the Author’s responsibility to ensure that any images used their submissions do not break international copyright law.

Please Note – as the Interalia Magazine is part-free/part-subscription based, all written articles will have part-free access (usually the first 2/3 paragraphs) with full access to all articles by subscription only. All poetry, visual articles and videos will be entirely free access.

Please credit the Interalia Magazine as place of first publication. Interalia Magazine reserves the right to make minor copy editing changes to the manuscript. Any major editorial changes will require author’s approval prior to publication.

ABSTRACT

Each written article requires an abstract written in the third person, summarizing the article’s main point; maximum 100 words.

FORMATTING THE WRITTEN ARTICLE

The article should be prepared according to the following guidelines: 

(1) The length of articles is normally no greater than 5,000 words but should not exceed 7,000 words, including an abstract and notes. An article exceeding the length limit will be returned to the author. 

(2) At the beginning of the article, the title, abstract and a list of key words should immediately precede the text.

(3) All citations should be in endnotes and not in the text. Number endnotes sequentially with Arabic numbers. Use the endnote function in your word processing program so that the notes appear at the end of the article. 

(4) Font should be 11-point Arial, whether in normal, bold, or italic, including endnotes. Please do not insert line breaks in the text or special spacing for formatting.

(5) The paragraph break should be indicated by an extra line space rather than an indentation at the beginning of a paragraph. 

(6) Only the left hand margin should be justified. 

ACCEPTABLE FILE TYPES

Please submit texts in MS Word or Rich Text Format (RTF). If submitting from a Macintosh computer, please include the three-letter file extension in the file name of your article. PDF files are not acceptable. 

Images should be in .jpg or .tif format. 

Naming files: File names should not contain spaces. They may contain letters, numbers, hyphens (-) and underscores (_). No other punctuation is allowed. Files must have the three-letter file extension identifying the file type (i.e. .rtf, .wpd, .doc), whether submitted from a Windows or Macintosh computer. 

AppleWorks, Lotus, or other word processor documents must be saved in one of the above formats.

ILLUSTRATION GUIDELINES

Illustrations are encouraged for all articles (if relevant) and should be provided as high-resolution jpg digital images.

Lettering on diagrams must be professional quality.

A list of figure captions should be included with each illustrated manuscript and must include credits to the copyright holder and/or photographer.

Authors have full responsibility for providing visual material that suitably complements their articles and meets the professional requirements of the Interalia Magazine. The editorial office does not provide graphic services. Careful attention to these guidelines should assure authors of visually effective articles.

CREDITS AND COPYRIGHT PERMISSION

Captions to images used in all articles must also include credits to photographers and artwork owners and, in the case of copyrighted material, the names of copyright holders. Authors are responsible for securing permissions to reprint copyrighted material and must supply original, signed documentation of this permission from the copyright holder(s) and photographers to the editorial office before material can be published. Any fees required to secure copyright permissions or use of figures are the responsibility of authors.

ARTISTS’ WRITINGS and VISUAL ARTICLES

Since one of the Interalia Magazine’s primary purposes is to encourage artists to discuss their work, artists are invited to submit illustrated texts dealing with their current work or a body of work that has been carried out over an extended period. These texts should be written in the artist’s voice, although they may be written with a co-author. Articles of 2000 to 3000 words in length (including endnotes) may have up to 12 colour or black-and-white illustrations. Articles under 2000 words in length (including endnotes) may have up to 6 colour or black-and-white illustrations.

‘Visual’ articles, requiring no text, may have up to 20 colour or black-and-white images.

SUBMITTING AN ARTICLE

An e-mail message with the article as an attachment to Interalia Magazine should be sent to info@interaliacentre.org .

Use “Submission” as the subject in the email address block. The message should include (1) the author’s name, (2) the title of the article, (3) an abstract of no more than 150 words, and (4) any relevant information about the author, including institutional affiliation, mailing and e-mail addresses. 

Once you have prepared your paper observing the formatting, attach it to the e-mail message. An acknowledgement will be sent indicating that the paper has been received within 3 working days.

We do our best to respond to acceptance for publication of submissions within two months maximum. We are unable to respond to inquiries about the status of submissions. This is especially true for phone calls. We appreciate your patience!
