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.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor currently submitted for consideration to another journal (or an explanation has been provided to the Editor-in-chief). While in review at NJLIS, the submission may not be submitted elsewhere without permission to withdraw it from the Editor-in-chief.
- Any manuscript you submit to NJLIS is original. If the paper has been made accessible in any form (e.g. on a pre-print server or at a conference), you must contact the Editor-in-chief before submitting it to NJLIS for consideration.
- All contributors who have made substantive intellectual contributions to the paper are given credit as authors, and persons who have not made substantive contributions are not listed as authors.
- The submission file is in Microsoft Word, rich text, or open office format.
- The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; is written in Times New Roman; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses). Illustrations and figures are submitted as independent files.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements stated in the author guidelines below.
- When available, the URLs to access references online are provided, including those for open access versions of the reference.
- When available, the DOI-number of a publication is provided at the end of the reference.
- There is written permission to use any material in the paper, for example tables or pictures, created by a third party.
- The text has been prepared for blind peer review by removing any information which can be used to identify the author (as far as possible), including file metadata.
Articles submitted to NJLIS should not be submitted to or published in other journals. If the submission has been uploaded to a pre-print server or presented at a conference, it can still be considered for publication in NJLIS, provided that the details are described in a comment to the editor and that no copyright has been assigned to other parties. If a conference contribution has been previously published, the submission to NJLIS should be considerably developed compared to the conference version.
