The Journal of Ideology


For literary submissions, see guidelines below:

As the purpose of JI is to critique the conventional wisdom in a given area, each article published should, at its outset, indicate briefly what the conventional view is and how the position asserted differs from that generally accepted. In composing your article, please keep in mind that JI is an interdisciplinary journal with a general readership of scholars who, though informed in their own areas of expertise, need to be informed explicitly of the extent to which your vision critiques the conventional wisdom.

Please submit one electronic copy via email of your Microsoft Word manuscript. Use 1 1/4" margins on all sides and double space your manuscript.  Please include your name, institutional affiliation, mailing address, telephone number, and email address at the bottom left of the last page.  All manuscripts will be reviewed by at least two readers. Your manuscript will be de-identified before it is sent to the reviewers.

References should be formatted using publication guidelines of the American Psychological Association. Please refrain from using footnotes or endnotes.  Include all graphs, photos, etc. within the text of the document (i.e., where you want them to be placed).  The responsibility for the completeness and accuracy of all documentation rests entirely with the author of the article submitted.

Manuscripts accepted for publication will be copyedited by at least two members of the staff.

All first North American serial rights belong to JI.

For literary submissions, please submit one electronic copy via email of your Microsoft Word document, single spaced, of 3-5 poems, one short story, one play, or one piece of creative non-fiction. Include a cover letter with the title of the piece(s) and your contact information.
