Technoetic Arts Journal: useful information to guest-editors
While the Editorial Organism (EO)of Technoetic Arts will usually invite its guest editor(s), we welcome proposals for a special issue on a particular topic.
Any queries can be directed to the Editorial Organism (EO) at [email protected]. The EO will review all proposals and communicate their decision as to whether they accept the proposal in a timely manner.
The documentation included below aims to provide an overview and support the guest editors through the production process following the proposal’s acceptance.
As of January 2023, the next thematic issue open for proposals is the spring 2026 issue. We would require potential guest editors to submit articles to the Editorial Organism by December 2025.
The Editorial Organism of Technoetic Arts welcomes proposals for issues devoted to a specific theme. Proposals should be submitted in DOC, RTF, ODT or PDF format via e-mail to <editors[a]technoeticartsjournal.org>
Each proposal should include the following information:
Guest editors: names, affiliations and contact details
Theme of the issue
Expected date of completion: the date by which the guest editor(s) will deliver the final manuscripts
Rationale: a short text (no less than 20 lines, no more than 2 pages) explaining why the topic is considered appropriate for an issue of Technoetic Arts
Expected contributors: a list of prospective authors who will contribute to the issue. For each author, the list must include the topic of his/her contribution, his/her affiliation, and an indication of whether or not the person in question has already agreed to submit a paper for that issue. We further suggest complementing the list of invited contributors with a call for articles to keep the issue open for contributions by the wider Technoetic Arts community.
Prospective guest editors should keep in mind that:
each issue of Technoetic Arts needs to be between 40 and 60 000 words
the journal publishes only original contributions, which have not been published before and are not being considered for publication elsewhere
each article should be between 5000 and 7500, including references and images. A full-page image counts 400 words, a half-page image counts 200 words etc.
articles will only be published after a rigorous double-blind peer-review process, i.e. there is no guarantee that invited contributions reach publication as they need to meet quality standards
the journal does not publish conference proceedings, albeit a workshop or conference might constitute a suitable way of soliciting some or all the papers included within an issue
if a proposal is accepted, the guest editor(s) will be required to provide all the materials for the issue, including copyright transfer forms, within the agreed deadlines, to proofreads all contributions, and to make sure that authors do the same in a timely fashion; failure to comply might result in delaying or cancelling the issue
