How to send a submission to Snapshot journal[edit]

Submission processes are being developed and workshopped in this space, before being loaded into the OJS system.

All contributions should be submitted online. Prior to online submission, all contributions should have been recommended for publication by the assessing lecturer or tutor. Any contributions that do not have recommendation to publish should follow the unsolicited submission procedure outlined below.

Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting, or if already registered can log in and begin the simple five-step process. Authors must agree to publish their work under a Creative Commons licence when they register.

Include a short paragraph (up to 60 words) to tell us a little bit about you. We'd like to know what motivated you to study at uni, what you enjoy about uni, or perhaps what you want to study next.

Length of contributions is determined by the lecturer when setting the assessment task that is designed to develop contributions for the journal. Contributions should adhere to Harvard referencing style (author date, page), as is standard for the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences; unless a different referencing style is required for a particular discipline. If you are submitting artwork or multimedia, or proposing any other unusual or complex submissions, please contact the editors [mailto:].

Any images, illustration, photographs, figures, or tables embedded in the document should also be submitted separately as jpeg files. Any such images MUST have copyright clearance; either a Creative Commons licence, written permission from the creator, or be created by the author of the contribution.


Snapshot journal prefers in-text citations and a bibliography (if appropriate) at the end of the piece, rather than a footnote system.
