Guidelines for authors
Publishing in Seminar.net is free of charge. We will ask the contributors to make the process easy by conforming to the requirements listed below.
Tables and Figures will be published as suggested in the manuscript.
References should be indicated in the typescript by giving the author's name, with the year of publication in parentheses, as detailed in the APA style guide. If several papers by the same author and from the same year are cited, a, b, c, etc. should be put after the year of publication. The references should be listed in full at the end of the paper in standard APA format. For example:
Cary, F. J. (1991). Begging to Feel: Tinkering and learning. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press.
Jiggery, F.K., Grieg, Q. B., Kakk, P., Sober, O. K., Mantel, P. L., Toff, L., Givens, S. B., Jaws, P., & Fokker, O. (2000). Constructive ideas in bicycling. In J. F. Cochran, & O. D. Johnson (Eds.) Modern bicycling (pp. 29-49). New Jersey: Prentice Hall.
Myahira, L. P. (1996). Backtracking in Mountain bikes. Bicycling: journal of research in modern bicycling, 13, 120-140.
After reception of article, it will be screened by the editor/s. If found suitable for the journal, the article will be sent to two referees for further reviewing. Seminar.net practices a double blind referee process. Three outputs: rejection, accepted, accepted if revised, are possible. If accepted on the condition of revision, the editors will decide if a new process of reviews is necessary.
Proofs will be sent by the publishers to authors in electronic form. The author/s will have to respond within three days to answer queries.
Offprints: no offprints will be available
Keywords: The author(s) should include a set of keywords for the article. These will be used as metadata tags when the article is published online.
Video: Each article published on seminar.net is accompanied by a video-introduction by the author(s). The video should be delivered in a digital format. It should be minimum 640 x 360 pixels (widescreen) – or minimum 640 x 480 (4x3 equivalent) – big in the fileformats mp4, .mov, .wmv or .avi. When shooting the video, please bear in mind that it will be viewed in a small format so a "talking head" is preferred, that any disturbing backgrounds, environments etc. should be avoided and that quality of sound is important. Avoid shooting in an environment with many other sounds and use an external microphone if available (try to avoid internal microphones in laptops because the posibility of fan noise).
