Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • 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.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines


Submissions may include scholarly articles, commentaries, review articles, film and book reviews. Manuscripts must be written in English and must not be more than 30 pages, clearly typed with Microsoft Word Times New Roman 12 points font size, and double-spaced with one-inch margin on all sides. Articles should include a brief abstract, and a short biography with author's full name, title, current affiliation and full postal address/phone/fax/email details of author(s).

Authors are asked to strictly limit their use of underlining and bolding. Tables should be kept to a minimum and should be typed on separate sheets and their position indicated by a marginal note in the text. All tables should indicate their source(s) typed below the tables and submitted in grayscale (black and white) in .gif or .jpg format. Diagrams and photographs or 'Figures' as they are known generally, should be referred to as such in the manuscript and numbered consecutively.

Nigerian Studies Review uses the Chicago Manual of Style 15th Edition. All endnotes must be inserted and numbered automatically as generated by a word processor program such as Microsoft Word. They are placed at the end of the documents as Notes.  Do not insert endnotes and numbers manually.
