Author Guidelines

Submission

The Journal of the Rutgers University Libraries (JRUL) accepts exclusive submissions of original manuscripts that have not been previously published and are not forthcoming in print or online in a scholarly journal, book, or other publishing format. When submitting, Authors agree not to submit a manuscript for electronic or print publication in another journal until the JRUL decides to accept or reject it, or until the Author withdraws this submission. JRUL does not have article processing charges (APCs) or article submission charges.

Copyright

Authors own the copyright to their articles. The authors have, however, consented to the following provisions associated with their copyright:

  1. Authors grant the JRUL the right to publish and archive their articles for an unlimited time and to make their articles available to readers (see item 2 below) on the World Wide Web, or through whatever medium the JRUL determines is best to accomplish its purposes, whether the medium is now known or developed in the future.
  2. Authors

     

Submission Preparation Checklist

As 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.

  1. 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.
  2. The submission file is in Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. All URL addresses in the text (e.g., http://www.rutgers.edu/) are activated and ready to click.
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); with figures and tables placed within the text, rather than at the end.
  5. The text meets this journal's formatting requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines found in About the Journal. If the journal section is peer reviewed, author identification has been removed, and "Author" and year have been used in the bibliography and footnotes, instead of authors' names, titles, etc. The author's name has been removed from the document's Properties, which in Microsoft Word is found in the File menu.
