Guidelines for Authors

Fragmentology welcomes submissions from the scholarly community. Submissions from the community will be subjected to a rigorous double-blind peer review process. Fragmentology accepts submissions of traditional articles, typically not more than 10,000 words long, as well as of shorter research notes, documenting specific discoveries and precise issues, usually of no more than 2,000 words. English is the preferred language, but submissions in French, German, and Italian will be considered.

Before submitting, authors are encouraged to:

  • Prepare the article according to the style sheet.
  • Have the article proofread by a native speaker for orthography, grammar, and style.
  • Prepare a separate page with the name of the author or authors, article title, and contact information.
  • Anonymize the work: remove all references to the author or authors, or other information that would reveal the identity of the article’s authors.

In submitting, the author warrants that:

  • She or he is the sole author of the article, or that all authors are duly credited on the title page in accordance with standard academic practice; similarly, all sources, texts, translations, and other material are duly credited in accordance with standard academic practice.
  • If accepted, the author will grant Fragmentology the non-exclusive, fully sublicensable right to publish the article under a Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution (CC BY) license.
  • The author will, prior to publication, secure permission to publish images and all other intellectual property contained in the article in accordance with a CC BY license.

By accepting an article for publication, the editorial staff of Fragmentology agrees to make a good-faith effort to publish the article. Fragmentology does not have mandatory Article Processing Charges (APCs), but a voluntary APC to cover expenses may be solicited.
