Apocalyptica seeks articles that actively explore the apocalypse as a forceful figure of thought in order to grapple with the historical experiences, present confrontations, and future possibilities of (up)ending worlds. (please see our open call for more detailed thematic guidance).
Articles should be about 8,000 – 9,000 words long (including abstract, references, footnotes, etc). We also require a short author biography (50-70 words), an abstract (250 words) and 3-5 keywords.
Please use Chicago author-date style for citations and follow our Style Guide for a more detailed overview of how to arrange your article:
Manuscripts should be double-spaced throughout and must use a typeface no smaller than 12pts. Please leave at least a one-inch margin.
Please submit your article via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The editors will acknowledge the reception of your manuscript and let you know about next steps of the review process (see below). Submission of a manuscript to the journal will be taken to imply that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication.
To maintain the quality of all publications, the journal ensures that all submissions undergo a rigorous double-blind peer review.
All submissions will be read by the editors for initial evaluation before they are sent to two external reviewers, who will provide reports on the article. Authors may be asked to revise their work in response to the reviews.
All final decisions about the work’s publication are made by the editors.
