Submission guidelines

CUTN Journal of Media and Communication is a peer-reviewed and open-access journal that published original research articles (between 6,000 and 9,000 words) and shorter commentaries (2,000-3,000 words).

All papers must be theoretically and/or empirically driven. A double-blind review process is employed, and hence, the submissions should consist of a cover file and separate manuscript file. The cover file should include the manuscript title, author(s), affiliation, each author’s contact information and e-mail address, any acknowledgments and author biographies (100 words maximum for all authors). The manuscript file should include an abstract of no more than 150 words, followed by 4 to 5 keywords. It is important that authors’ names do not appear anywhere other than on the cover file.

Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 5th edition (2001). Note that the manuscript should be double spaced. Submissions should be sent as mail attachments (MS Word format)—accompanied by a cover letter—to francis@cutn.ac.in.

Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content.

Publication fee: Though this journal is an open-access journal, it does not charge a publication fee for the review process. Authors whose manuscripts have been accepted for publication in the journal will be asked to sign a copyright transfer form. Publication in the online version of the journal does not contain publication fee. However, to receive a hard copy of the journal, the author needs to pay a registration fee of $50 (for foreign authors) or Rs1,200.
