Submission Guidelines

Submission Information

Submit both solicited and unsolicited research papers, articles, symposia, and comments on papers previously published in this journal directly to Chris Matthew Sciabarra at chris.sciabarra@nyu.edu. Send proposals for book reviews and queries about the appropriateness of an article to the same email address. Submissions or correspondence with the journal’s editorial board can also be mailed to: The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies, P.O. Box 230052, Brooklyn, New York 11223. Only contributions not under consideration elsewhere will be accepted, and these will be subject to double-blind peer review. Replies and rejoinders are not usually subject to such review, but they will be evaluated by the editorial board for appropriateness. All submitted papers must conform to the style guidelines below.

Preparation of article:

Place all tables, figures, and notes at the end of the manuscript. Manuscripts should be between 4,000 and 15,000 words. A 50–100 word abstract or summary statement of the essay’s central argument should be included at the beginning of the paper, along with a 50–100 word biographical sketch that includes email and street addresses, academic affiliation, telephone and telefax numbers, titles, publishers, and years of relevant publications. Authors who want their manuscripts or other media returned must enclose postage.

Stylistic Considerations:

Page citations should be included in-text, in the following format: “20–22,” “201–2,” “413–14,” “552–53” without “p.” or “pp.” abbreviations. The journal uses a dual system of notes as outlined by the Chicago Manual of Style. Citations and references should follow the “author-date” system in-text as seen in the pages of this journal. Explanatory notes should be in the form of endnotes, not footnotes. A list of sources should be placed at the end of the manuscript, titled “References,” and should follow the reference-list style of the Chicago Manual. Please use italics for book titles and emphasis. Please leave right margins ragged, rather than justified. Tables, figures, and photos must be submitted in their original format (.tiff, .jpeg, .eps) at the size the author would like them to appear. Digital images must be submitted at a minimum of 300 d.p.i. (dots per inch).
