Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

Sensorium Journal welcomes contributions in the form of original, unpublished and well-written articles, interviews, translations and introductions in English, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian. Sensorium Journal also welcomes artistic, literary or otherwise highly experimental contributions. We encourage contributors to send an e-mail to sensorium@liu.se, to discuss the idea with the editors before writing a piece.

The journal has both an open section (not peer-reviewed), and a peer-reviewed section. All accepted texts are thoroughly edited by the editors, and articles accepted in the section Peer-Reviewed Articles in addition undergo a double-blind peer review process.

When submitting your finished piece, an English abstract of no more than 300 words should be included, as well as 3-5 keywords in English and in the original language (if the article is not written in English). In addition, a short author presentation (approx. 50 words) should be submitted, including affiliation, research interests and e-mail address (in English).

Sensorium Journal uses the OJS editorial support system and manuscripts are submitted by the following this link: journal.ep.liu.se/index.php/sensorium/login. It is also possible to send the finished manuscript to sensorium@liu.se

Manuscripts should be in MS Word or RTF document file, set in standard font, with minimal formatting. Manuscripts intended for peer review should be submitted in a version suitable for double-blind reviewing (i.e. without direct references that make the author identifiable).

Use either UK or US spellings consistently, if writing in English. Quotations exceeding 40 words are to be set in separate, indented paragraphs.

References should follow Chicago Manual of Style with a full alphabetical listing at the end of the manuscript or in a separate document.

Illustrations, including pictures, tables and diagrams, should be embedded in the manuscript and submitted separately as high-resolution images. They should be numbered consecutively, with short descriptive captions including source information, and with a clear indication in the text of where they are to be inserted.

Open Section

This section can include non-peer reviewed articles, introductions, artistic contributions and excerpts from art and fiction. The contributions may be published post-publication on the blog of Sensorium Network, the publisher of Sensorium Journal, if apporved by the contributor.
