**EWRJ Call for Papers**

You are invited to submit:

an article of 5,000-6,000 words in length

a review article of 3,000-5,000 words

an account of 1,000-3,000 words for our ‘Critical Reflections’ section (shorter, focused discussions on a piece of emerging research or on a symposium event).

Submissions are welcome from those working in all fields, and from mainly within the University of Warwick but also other universities worldwide.

 

We are happy to accept submissions at any time for future issues and it may be that you are recommended for publication in the next issue regardless of meeting the official deadline.

We acknowledge that some research fields typically produce articles that are up to 7,000 words in length. Please contact the Editors beforehand if you wish to submit a longer article - exchangesjournal@warwick.ac.uk

As the journal is online and targeted at a broad author- and readership of next-generation researchers, the Editors encourage authors to develop their work with a cross-disciplinary audience in mind, and to include tables, diagrams and links to films, photographs and other websites where appropriate.

Papers will be published on the understanding that the article is an original piece of work, although it may be based on a previously published or submitted-for-review article designed for a different, field-specific audience. We accept submissions from any researcher or group of researchers worldwide. Where possible we encourage early career researchers to be the named or lead author in collaborative work with senior peers.

All material, including footnotes, titles, tables, and quotations, must be prepared according to the style guide (see link above) and appropriate permissions must have been obtained to reproduce any copyrighted images or content.
