Author Guidelines

Please Note: The editors of interface conduct all communication with authors via email. As such, it is important that you keep your email address as entered in the system accurate. If you change institutions mid-submission, please update your email on your profile page. We can not be responsible for missed deadlines or communications that result from inaccurate author email addresses.

Submission Guidlines

We start the reviewing process as soon as we receive a paper and we guarantee that we will complete it within three months. Provided authors make any suggested revisions in a timely manner and no issue on a special topic has been scheduled, papers can be published within six months of being submitted.

We will publish a general issue in the Spring, Summer, and Fall of each year. So, as a general guideline, authors should expect the procedure to keep the following timeline:

  • Aug. 15, Dec. 15, Apr. 15 -- All manuscripts for consideration for general issues due.
  • Nov. 15, Mar. 15, Jul. 15 -- Notification of the results of the review process
  • Dec. 15, Apr. 15, Aug. 15 -- All author revisions and resubmissions due
  • Jan. 15, May 15, Sep. 15 -- We complete the typesetting of the articles
  • Jan. 29, May 29, Sep. 29 -- Final author revisions of the proofs due

Manuscripts should be submitted solely to this journal and should not have been published before, not be in-press, and not simultaneously submitted elsewhere. All research needs to meet the ethical guidelines of its discipline, be original work and submission must be prepared for blind review (e.g., the complete text minus the title page, acknowledgements, and any running headers of author names, to allow blinded review). Authors are completely responsible for securing any and all copyrights for third-party contents as necessary.


Length limits per type of submission

  • Articles: .doc or .docx files, not exceeding 12.000 words including references
  • Book and Multimedia reviews: .doc or .docx, not exceeding 8.000 words
  • Multimedia: .mov files, .mp4 files
  • Graphics: .jpeg or .png, 300 dpi or higher

  • For citations and references, please follow the latest edition of APA.
