SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Ethnography 

  1. Submission guidelines

 

In this category CARD seeks original ethnographies that engage with topics of forced displacement in critical ways. Works should reflect or address the experience of a certain affected group in a respectful, truthful, and academic way which represents such groups to the best of the ethnographer’s ability. Submissions should use language accessible to both academics in disciplines of anthropology and forced displacement as well as to the general public. We accept papers between 25-40 pages in length, including footnotes but excluding references. For CARD’s January launch, we will only be accepting submissions from those who self-identify as emerging scholars.

 

  • Font should be size 12 for text, footnotes and references included.

  • Please use footnotes and refrain from using endnotes.

  • Do not use acronyms or computational abbreviations when discussing variables.

  • All abbreviations must have an explanation at the first instance in the manuscript. Consider also providing a section listing all abbreviations.

  • Please include complete first and family names in the reference list.

  • We expect the use of the 17th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style
