1.  All manuscript submissions should be submitted, as Microsoft Word files, to our online submissions system at < URL to be announced>.   Until the online system is operational, please submit manuscripts to the editor at

2. Submissions to the JGSS should be approximately 10,000 words, including source citations. In special instances the editor in chief may allow longer papers to be published. All submissions should also include an abstract of no more than 250 words.

3. All submissions should follow The Chicago Manual of Style (16th Edition). The Journal of Global South 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.), NOT ROMAN NUMERALS, in the body of the paper with corresponding numbers and sources listed separately under NOTES at the end of the paper.  These number citations should appear after any punctuation marks, not inside.  For example, “He claimed that the data was flawed.”1

4. 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 (i.e., neither the author(s) nor the reviewers know each other).

5. 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 in the paper if it is finally published in the journal.

6. All spelling must be in American English. Authors must edit British spelling previous to submission unless such spelling is part of a direct quote.

7. Please use Times New Roman (12pt font) and double-space the text.

8. 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 scrutinize and evaluate the quality of arguments and analysis.

9. The main section headings for the paper should be centered on the page; 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.
