    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The Journal of Citizenship and Globalisation Studies (JCGS) is interested in the complex and often contradictory meanings of citizenship, social inclusion and globalisation at the local, national and transnational levels.

    To this end JCGS publishes high-quality innovative empirical and theoretical papers that critically engage with:

    • emergent practices of community and citizenship at multiple levels of social life
    • tensions and innovations in contemporary practices of governance, security and democracy around the world
    • the plural and contested constructions and claims of identity within and between complex societies
    • the ways heritage and (material as well as intangible) culture elicit contestation and dissonance, as well as different modes of being in the world today
    • the nexus between discrimination and disparity, and its impact on development and human rights
    • uncovering theory, policy and practice necessary for the achievement of social justice

    JCGS is multidisciplinary and welcomes submissions from: sociology; anthropology; political science; philosophy; history; development studies; migration studies; international relations; postcolonial studies; education, and others that addresses the journal’s scope above.

    JCGS is also a global publication, which aims to contribute to the construction of global knowledges; unconstrained by borders or boundaries. It particularly welcomes submissions that adopt transnational, intercultural and international frames and methods.

    Manuscripts should be submitted as Word, docx or rtf files.

    PEER REVIEW

    All submissions will undergo initial editor screening based only on the intellectual content of the submission and its relevance to journal scope. If application, double-blind peer review follows. Editors aim to ensure that peer review is constructive and timely.

    FORMATTING

    Please use only 12-point Unicode fonts (e.g. Times New Roman, Arial) for all text. Text should be double-spaced. Paragraphs indicated with 1.27 cm indents.

    Use the following document structure:

    1. Introduction (titling this section is optional)
    2. Subsequent sections (i.e. Methods; Discussion; Conclusion – all clearly indicated with appropriate Headings) which may include tables, references to figures and figure captions.
    3. Appendices (if any).
    4. Endnotes (if Any).
    5. References - Include a proper bibliography following the guidelines in the References section below.

    Please ensure that your text is written and proofed in accordance with English (UK)

    Any notes are always Endnotes. We ask that these be kept to a minimum. Excessively long Endnotes are better handled in an Appendix

    Quotation marks: we use double curly quotation marks. Single quotation marks only for quotes within quotes

    Emphasis, Non-English Terms and Titles: please use Italics for emphasis. Non-English language terms should also be set in italics rather than underlined. Titles of books, movies, and the like should be set in italics rather than underlined.  

    TABLES, FIGURES & GRAPHS

    All images/figures/illustrations must be of reproduction-ready quality and in EPS, TIF, or JPG format. A resolution of 1200 dpi is recommended. All figures should be accompanied with descriptive captions. Explain all symbols used in the figures; and detail sources at the bottom of each figure where applicable. Remember to use the same abbreviations as in the text body. Cite all figures in the text in numerical order. Indicate the approximate placement of each figure. Embed figures within the text body of the manuscript and submit figures in separate files. Only figures (graphs, line drawings, photographs, etc) should be labeled as ‘figures’, not tables or equations.

    Permissions: It is the authors’ responsibility to obtain permission to reproduce original or modified material that has been previously published. Modified material includes ‘derivative reproduction’ (where you have created a new figure or table which derives substantially from a copyrighted source). Any permissions fees are the responsibility of the author(s).

    Tables must not be displayed as images, and must be generated in Word or a compatible format. Number tables consecutively using Arabic numerals. Tables should appear in the document near where they are referenced in the text, and be supplied as separate files. All tables should be accompanied with a short descriptive title, column headings, and (if necessary) footnotes to make each table and their sources self-explanatory. Refer to tables in the text as Table 1, 2 etc. Use Table 1, etc. in the table legends.  

    REFERENCING

    Please use the Chicago Manual of Style Author-Date system for parenthetical citation in the text and the related reference list entry.
