If you would like to submit a proposal for the current call for papers or an article as an independent contribution, we invite you to consult our editorial guidelines and familiarize yourself with the evaluation process as well as the different submission categories.
Submitting a Proposal
– For a thematic issue: please respond to the call for papers by sending your proposal directly to the guest editor(s) by the deadline indicated in the call. The proposals must include a 500-word abstract and the contact information of the author(s). Within two weeks of the submission deadline, you will receive a letter from the guest editor(s) indicating whether your proposal has been accepted or not.
– For an independent submission: you can submit an independent proposal for a publication in the journal at any time by writing directly to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission Guidelines for Authors
The final texts should be no more than 6,000 words in length (40,000 characters, with spaces). We encourage you to use illustrations (still or moving images, audio clips, etc.), for which you need to obtain the rights for reproduction or make sure the material is free of copyright (see “Guidelines and Documents”). Along with their texts, authors should also submit an abstract of their essay in both English and French (5–10 lines of text each), a maximum of five keywords, a brief biographical note in their preferred language (5 lines), and a completed copyright grant form. For submissions to a thematic issue, these documents should be sent directly to the guest editor(s) within four months of receiving the notice of acceptance.
We kindly ask you to format your text according to the journal’s guidelines, which are available here. *Please note that the guidelines in French and in English differ slightly, so make sure to use the guide corresponding to the language of your article. For the guidelines in French, please click here.
Evaluation and revisions
The authors agree to submit only original and previously unpublished work in French or in English. If the author would like to use previous work, this is possible if the citations are partial, well-documented, and necessary for the development of a new idea or case study in the present article.
All research and research-creation articles submitted to Intermediality are evaluated through a double-blind peer-review process (see the section “Editorial Policy”). Within three months after the article is sent for evaluation, the authors will receive a summary of the anonymous reviews along with a first notice of decision from the editorial committee, containing, if necessary, suggestions for changes to the article. The selected texts must be revised within a month.
Once the second version of the text has been submitted, and depending on the extent of the required changes, the committee may deem a second evaluation necessary. The journal’s editorial board will make the final decision on whether to accept or not the revised article. The final version of the accepted papers will be sent out for copyediting. The authors are invited to read and check the proofs of their article before publication.
