Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- I have read the Intersect Author Guidelines above.
- If the submission is accepted, I agree to work with the Intersect editing team to prepare this paper for publication in the timeframe of the issue for which it was submitted. This may require paper revisions and edits. If I fail to do so, I recognize that the editing team is warranted in rejecting my paper.
- 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, RTF, or WordPerfect 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, which is found in About the Journal. (Note: This also means that the text should adhere to APA Style as dictated by http://www.apastyle.org.)
- If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review (removal of name and authorship information from the document) have been followed.
Research ArticlesThese articles report on original research conducted by the authors or are review articles that synethesize, organize and draw conclusions about a field of research. They should be 4,000-6,000 words in length, including the bibliography, with tables and figures welcomed.
CommentsOpinion-oriented works (typically less research-intensive than articles)
Honors Theses ExcerptsExcerpts from honors theses written for departmental or interdisciplinary honors programs. All references within an excerpt must be fully documented.
Multimedia ArtifactsDesign-intensive works (for example, videos, web sites, user interfaces, technology design projects)
Book ReviewsReviews of recent and older books of relevance and import for the field of STS are welcomed. Reviews, of close to 1,000 words, should be headed by complete bibliographic information on the book, including price. They should take a position on the book’s contribution to STS, considering the work's value and relevance, its style and method, as well as its shortcomings. These reviews are intended to serve as a helpful guide for our principal audience of students in this field.
InterviewsSTS-related interviews with faculty, students or people in industry. If interested, contact the Managing Editor to discuss the format and content of the interview.
