Author Guidelines


Articles submitted for publication and all editorial inquiries should be addressed to the editor Jacob Lund: E-mail

Manuscripts should be submitted as Word files by e-mail attachment. Submissions should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Articles should not exceed 7500 words, though in certain cases exceptions may be made. Please include on a separate cover sheet an abstract of a maximum of 150 words and a short biographical note on the author. Manuscripts should be written according to the specifications of The Chicago Manual of Style : (notes but no bibliography). Please use endnotes rather than footnotes. All quotations from a language other than English must be translated. The original quotation can be included in the endnotes. A list of any illustrations can be included at the end of the main body of the text. Articles should be double-spaced, including quotations and notes. These guidelines also apply to book reviews (book notes should not normally exceed 1500 words, book reviews 5000 words, and review essays 7500 words).

All submissions that are not invited will be subjected to blind review. The author’s name should therefore not appear on manuscripts and any reference to the author’s previous work should be in the third person.

It is the responsibility of the author to secure permission to reproduce all illustrations.


The Nordic Journal of Aesthetics regularly publishes issues compiled by guest-editors, e.g. in connection with a conference. Potential guest-editors should make an initial proposal to the editor including a title, detailed thematic outline, and suggested contributors
