Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines

Submitted papers should be between 7000 and 10,000 words long. Book reviews should be between 750 and 1200 words. Essays should be between 1000 and 4000 words.

All authors must submit two documents: 1) anonymous version; and 2) a title page with all author contact and affiliation information. 

Papers must be written in English, APA citation style. The text is double-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.

Submission files must be Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file format.

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).

All submissions are submitted to an intensive, double-blind peer-review process, comprising a review board of specialists in the field. Once revisions have been completed and a final decision has been made by the Editor-in-Chief, final copyediting and formatting will be provided by BIG_Review.

The Editor-in-Chief will notify authors as early as possible as to whether their paper has been accepted for publication. Selected manuscripts are assigned a member of the Editorial Board, who will work with the author to address any outstanding issues concerning style or substantive content prior to publication. Please see BIG_Review's style guide for specifics on formatting. Papers that do not abide by the publication’s style guide will not be accepted.

To cover costs, BIG_Review charges a $250 Cdn publication fee per published academic article. 

BIG_Review reserves the right to reject submissions on any grounds. The publication fee for academic articles only applies to submissions that are approved and published.

Artist Guidelines 

BIG_Review promotes a wide range of borders-related artwork at no cost to the artist. We accept small portfolios and individual works, including original poems, short stories, fiction reviews, photos, painting and other forms of art. Our electronic platform permits a wide range of media, from print to visual, video, animation, and interactive.

Prose should be single-spaced and use a 12-point font. Photography must be high-resolution, BMP, JPEG, or PNG. Poetry formats may vary.

All submissions must be previously unpublished and not simultaneously before other publishers for consideration. Submissions are not guaranteed approval. BIG_Review reserves the right to reject submissions on any grounds.
