Author Guidelines

Contributors should write in ways that reflect that they are addressing an international audience, with diverse political and social perspectives.

Publishing in Seminar.net is free of charge. We will ask the contributors to make the process easy by conforming to the requirements listed below.

Manuscripts should be submitted in electronic format to the editor at yngve.nordkvelle@inn.no. All written correspondence can be sent to Seminar.net, Inland Norway University. Articles should ideally contain no more than 6000 words and should adhere strictly to the style guide of the American Psychological Association (APA). Please make sure that the article contains a title of the contribution, name(s) and email address(es) of the author(s), a short note of biographical details. The article should begin with an abstract of 150-200 words. The full postal and email address of the author who will receive correspondence will be helpful.

Tables and Figures will be published as suggested in the manuscript. 

References should be indicated in the typescript by giving the author's name, with the year of publication in parentheses, as detailed in the APA style guide. If several papers by the same author and from the same year are cited, a, b, c, etc. should be put after the year of publication. The references should be listed in full at the end of the paper in standard APA format. For example:

After reception of article, it will be screened by the editor/s. If found suitable for the journal, the article will be sent to two referees for further reviewing.  Seminar.net practices a double blind referee process. Three outputs: rejection, accepted, accepted if revised, are possible. If accepted on the condition of revision, the editors will decide if a new process of reviews is necessary.

Proofs will be sent by the publishers to authors in electronic form. The author/s will have to respond within three days to answer queries.
