Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

Polysemy will prioritize texts that contain authorial insights with adequate logical, textual backing and discursive merits.  

The articles should be based on exploratory and qualitative research questions where the issues are investigated and explained from a number of critical perspectives and substantive information. The conclusions should claim novelty in view of the addition and consolidation of knowledge and scholarship in the related fields.  

Format of the Article

Authors are encouraged to structure their texts in the following format: 

  • Abstract-like introductory paragraph in at least 500 words including the background, thesis, method of inquiry, main arguments and conclusions
  • Review of existing knowledge or trend 
  • Discussion/analysis 
  • Inferences/Conclusions
  • Works Cited

Language

The article should be written in English (US). It is on the part of the author to thoroughly edit the text before submission though it will undergo review and copy-editing after submission.  

Graphics 

Tables and Figures should be numbered sequentially in accordance with the MLA documentation system (latest edition). Relevant Tables and Figures should be presented in the related section of the article. However, a separate file of the same is expected so as to ensure keeping important information unchanged in the process of review and editing as the text is read in multiple systems and media. 

The source of every Table or Figure should be provided in the article. Images should meet the minimum requirement for publication, preferably in 900 kb or more.

Word Limits

The article should be between 3000-5000 words.
