Submission Guidelines

Ikhtilaf Journal accepts scholarly articles, book reviews, and review essays. All submissions are blind-reviewed by the editorial board. Authors names should appear only on the cover page.

Contributor Notes: Include with your paper a brief biographical statement which indicates current academic title and/or affiliation(s), recent and forthcoming publications (title, press, and publication date), and any other relevant information.

Contributions should be sent by email as a Microsoft Word (.docx) attached file. The journal uses the stylistic guidelines set forth in The Chicago Manual of Style. However, page references in the text of an essay are formatted in MLA style (parenthetical form). Use endnotes rather than footnotes for all substantive comment and bibliographic information. For emphasis Italicis are preferred over bold face .

Each research manuscript should include the following:
1- A cover page that contains: a) Author's manes and The title of the manuscript b) An abstract that does not exceed 200 words c) 4 to 6 keywords
2- The body of the paper
3- Bibliographical references
4- (Optional) Appendices, charts, and tables, if any.
All other pieces should include the following:
1- The title of the piece
2- The body of the piece
3- Bibliographical references, if any.

While we are flexible with length, we prefer manuscripts to range between 4000 and 6000 words, including the title, abstract, keywords, footnotes, references, appendices, and any additional reference.
All other pieces could fall anywhere between 1000 and 4000 words, including the title, footnotes, bibliography, and any additional reference.

Submissions should be emailed in Word Document format to the editor

While Ikhtilaf Journal supports the free and indiscriminate access to information, it does not tolerate plagiarism under any form. Acts of plagiarism will instantaneously disqualify the manuscript from consideration and revoke its author’s right to submit again to our journal
