  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

Author Guidelines

Criteria for submission:

Submissions must meet academic standards and original research is favoured. 
Opinion pieces will be considered for publication as commentary.
All research and scholarly submissions will be subject to online, double blind peer review. 
Articles must be submitted in English.

Articles should not be longer than 5000 words. The preferred length is 2500 – 4500 words.

They should be clearly written and broadly accessible. Please keep jargon, references, notes and graphs to a minimum.

Writers are responsible for the accuracy of their citations and for following “fair use” principles.

The author’s name, contact details and a brief biographical statement should be entered when registering on the website. [i.e. the author's name should not be on the title page (or recorded in the 'file properties') to ensure the integrity of the blind peer-review].

The referencing is Harvard style –(surname, date) should appear in the main text. Each direct quotation must be accompanied by a reference containing a page number. The full reference is listed under References at the end. Please ensure that references are complete, and that all of the references cited in the text are included in the references list. All entries in the reference list must be listed in alphabetical order. Entries by the same author should be listed in chronological order.

References to electronic material should provide the correct URL, date when item was accessed, plus any identifying information. The onus is on the author(s) to check the URL is a live and accurate link before submission of the article.

In compliance with the Harvard referencing style, New Agenda uses endnotes, not footnotes, numbered in the text using arabic numerals. Endnotes must be used only when necessary, to provide essential supplementary information – not references, except where additional reading is recommended as in: See author, year of publication. Title of article or publication, place of publication/publisher, pp .XX.


Book reviews:


We carry brief informative book reviews (+/-4-800 words) and longer review articles of 1200-1600 words. Reviews should include full title and author information, plus publisher, place and date of publication and number of pages. We often receive review copies of new books. Please contact us for available titles.
