|Publication Date||Initial Submission Date||Final Submission Date||Theme (If any)|
|January||December 1||December 21||Country issue|
|March||February 1||March 1|
|June||April 21||May 20|
|August||July 10||August 1|
|October||September 21||October 15|
Under some circumstances, exceptions can be made top this schedule with agreement from the Editor.: email@example.com.
All submissions must be in a format that expedites “copy” and “paste as text”.
Suggested options include:
• copying directly into email
• sending an attachment as a “.txt” file
• Microsoft Word
Graphics, to include tables, should be provided as “.jpg” or “.tif/f”
We will provide guidance for doing this if necessary.
There are no constraints on minimum or maximum length. This is one of the advantages of online publication. However, keep in mind the propensity for readers to find it difficult to include very long publications in their busy lives.
Content should contribute to the mission and vision of the Integral Leadership Review, be concerned with one or more issues of leadership, leaders and leading and engage this topic through an integral, developmental and/or transdisciplinary* lens. It is the responsibility of the editor (s) to determine how well the submission meets these criteria. At the same time we want authors to understand that we are all engaged in a process of discovery and learning. Many streams of thought have a contribution to make to this process. There fore, we welcome material that draws on the subfields of leadership theory, psychology—particularly adult development psychology, sociology, history, sciences and so on.
* Note: We distinguish between interdisciplinary—a mechanical combining of disciplines—from transdisciplinary— the inclusion of two or more disciplines in perspective that transcends both.
Please provide only absolutely necessary formatting to convey your layout preferences. The entire article will have to be reformatted for upload to the website.
- Do not use footnotes.
- Single space following periods, semicolons and colons.
- Use HBR guidelines for all in-text citations of others’ work and in listing them at the end of the article. For example:
Within the text, indicate the author(s) and year of publication: (Brown, 2006; Crow, 2004). For each in-text citation such as the example above, there is a corresponding reference included in an alphabetized reference list at the end of the article. References to (1) a book, (2) a journal article, and (3) a chapter in an edited book should look as follows:
• a reference to a book: Brown, D. (2006). Leader and leadership: Integral paths. San Francisco: Best Press
• a reference to a journal article. Brown, D. (2006). Leader and Leadership: Integral paths. International Journal of Leadership, 10(4), 189-210.
• a reference to a chapter in an edited book. Brown, D. (2006). Leader and Leadership: Integral paths. In A. Deer & B. Doe (Eds.), Bringing leading and following down to earth (pp. 230-250). Lisbon: Gibralter Press.
Peer review has not been an option for Integral Leadership Review publication. If there is a request for peer review of an individual article, we will consider the possibility for double-blind reviews.
Language is optional. As a publication with subscribers in more than thirty countries, we believe we have a responsibility for providing materials in other languages and will seek an editor–with your assistance–with that language capability. Any articles that are not published in English will, however, include an English summary.
Authors are required to submit short, one-paragraph biographies, an email address and such other contact information they wish to publish, and a .jpg or .tif photo for inclusion with the article.
