For book review guidelines, please see information available at the BOOK REVIEW GUIDELINES page.
kultur-e accepts original, unpublished written, audio and/or visual work. Articles should be 4000-7000 words long, including endnotes and the list of works cited. kultur-e only accepts electronic submissions. Submissions should be accompanied by a short C.V. (no more than three pages) and a statement that the work is the author’s own, original, unpublished and that it is not currently under consideration anywhere else. A separate information page should include the title of the article, the author’s name, physical and electronic contact information, as well as an abstract of 200-300 words and a list of four to five key words. (Submissions in English should also include an abstract in Turkish.) The submission itself should include no mention of the author’s name, in order to maintain the anonymity of the peer review process.
kultur-e uses the APA author-date system for references. All references should be indicated in parentheses, not in the end notes. Endnotes should be reserved for substantive comments, although in general, if it is worth saying, it is usually worth including in the main body of the text.
For articles, the first line of each paragraph should be indented. Do not leave any blank lines between paragraphs, although any subheadings should be preceded by a blank line. Do not include page numbers. Articles should be left-justified.
Quotations of less than three lines should be included in the main body of the text. Use double quotation marks for quotations and single quotation marks for quotations within quotations. Quotations of more than three lines should be indented 2 cm from the left margin and should not be enclosed within quotation marks.
Submissions are accepted in Turkish and English. Submissions in English should follow U.S. rules for spelling and punctuation. Quotations in other languages should be translated into the main language of the article (English or Turkish) and should immediately follow the original text.
The editors also welcome proposals for special issues around specific themes.
The editors of kultur-e will confirm receipt of a submission within one week of submission, and unless otherwise indicated, will endeavor to have the article peer-reviewed within eight weeks of initial submission.
