Journal Article Submission Guidelines

  • All submissions should be the FINAL version of the project, and should reflect graduate-level scholarly writing and research. Please do not submit projects in-process. These submissions will be rejected without review. Please ensure that papers reflect the most current research available at the time you submit.
  • Submissions citations must be in author-date APA Style format and must have in-text parenthetical citations (author, date, pg. number) with an alphabetical end bibliography. Please see examples of “Author Date” format.
  • All submissions should include an abstract no more than 250 words summarizing the project and conclusions.
  • Submissions must be in Times New Roman, 12 point font, double-spaced.
  • Papers are generally between 3,000 and 8,000 words (10-25 double-spaced pages), including citations.
  • Research on human subjects, including case studies and hypothesis testing, may require IRB approval before it can be published in gnovis. For information on IRB approval, please visit Georgetown University IRB Guidelines.

The Gnovis Journal Review Process

When a paper is accepted for review, it is sent to two gnovis peer reviewers. These are generally current students and alumni of the CCT program; they will read the project critically, paying close attention to both style and content and return it with commentary to the gnovis editorial team. If it meets gnovis’ editorial standards, the project is given back to the author for necessary revisions. Once necessary revisions are made to the satisfaction of the author and the gnovis editorial team, the project goes through a final evaluation by the staff before copyediting and publishing. Journal issues are published in the Spring of each year. Authors whose work is selected for publication will be published in the digital scholarly gnovis journal. In addition, the article will be permanently published and archived through Digital Georgetown. Each published author will also be invited to present their research to students and faculty of Georgetown’s Communications, Culture & Technology program and to the other authors at a special reception in Washington, DC.
