JOURNAL OF THIRD WORLD STUDIES
GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION
2. The paper should preferably be between 20-25 double-spaced pages, including source citations, with one inch margins on all sides of the page. In special instances the editor in chief may allow longer papers to be published.
3. The name of the author, institutional affiliation and contact information should not appear on the paper. This information should be provided on a separate page. This is to ensure the anonymity of the author to the reviewers of the paper. The journal’s review process is double-blind (1.e., neither the author(s) nor the reviewers know each other).
4. The title of the paper should be at the top of the first page and centered. Any abstract written for the paper will only be used for the review process, and will not appear in the journal publication. For this reason, authors should write the introduction and conclusion to their paper assuming that there will be no abstract to the paper if it is finally published in the journal.
5. All spelling must be in American English. Authors must edit British spelling previous to submission.
6. Please use Times New Roman (12) font. Do not use other fonts because these suggest the paper is short but when converted to Times New Roman (12), the pages become longer.
7. Depending on the nature of one’s paper, generally most papers would need the following sections: introduction, literature review, methods of data collection (if relevant), presentation and analysis of data collected, and summary/conclusion. Well structured papers make it easier for reviewers to review and evaluate the quality of arguments and analysis
8. The main section headings for the paper should be centered on the page, and then minor sub-headings or sub-sections should be justified on the left hand side of the page. This will make it easier for reviewers to know that a sub-section is under a major section.
9. The Journal of Third World Studies does not cite references or sources in the body of the paper with name of author, date of publication, and page number in brackets. The journal uses consecutive regular number citations (1,2,3,4,5,etc,etc), NOT ROMAN NUMERALS, in the body of the paper with corresponding numbers and sources listed separately under NOTES at the end of the paper.
