Author Guidelines

We accept submissions of two different types: short report articles of around 3,000 words  (perhaps based on project work) and longer articles of around 10,000 words (these could be based on dissertation work). Word counts are inclusive of abstract and references.

We also accept book reviews of approximately 1,500 words.  This could be a review of a linguistics book or article that you have found particularly useful during your studies, for example, or a review that you have written as an assessment at MA level.

Articles will be anonymously peer-reviewed by academic experts in the field before publication, so this is a great opportunity for you to receive additional feedback on your work and get experience of the academic publishing process.

Submission guidlines: All submissions should be in Word document file format with single-line spacing in 12 point Times New Roman font, and all references should adhere to the NTU Harvard style. 

Submissions should adhere to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Trent Notes Style Sheet.

For articles, please also include an abstract and up to five keywords that describe what your article is about and that people might use to search for your work.
