Altitude: an e-journal of emerging humanities work

Submission Guidelines

Email address:

Postal address: Clifton Evers, Journalism and Media Research Centre, University of New South Wales, Kensington, NSW. 2052. AUSTRALIA.

Altitude accepts articles, video, and sound for the peer review process.

Each Volume = 1 year. Articles are numbered. For example: Clifton Evers, Altitude, Volume 9, Article 1.

Editors review abstracts, initial screenings and listenings, and copy-edit. Peer-Reviews are subject to double review. The journal is regularly reviewed by the editorial advisory board. Altitude advocates an open review policy rather than a blind review policy in the interests of accountability and collegiality.

It is preferred that all article contributions are submitted electronically (via email attachment) in Microsoft Word or equivalent. If you wish to submit an image for peer review please send DVD or CD to editors.

Please include brief author biography with submissions, including degree status and university affiliation. Also, for all submissions please include a 200 word abstract.


Altitude welcomes the embedding of multimedia content within written submissions. If you intend to embed multimedia, please follow the guidelines below.

  • Images must be submitted separately as .jpg files and in high-resolution (minimum 300dpi)
  • Video clips should be uploaded to Vimeo and link sent to Editor in Chief Clifton Evers (with password, if privacy protected)
  • Sound can be emailed or posted to Co-Editor in Chief Clifton Evers in MP3 or MP4 format.
  • Do not embed multimedia files in the Word document. Instead, please insert reference point(s) in your paper where you would like to include multimedia content
  • Include captions along with the source(s) of the multimedia file(s) at the end of your article.
  • Please indicate whether the multimedia content was created by you or someone else
  • If you use multimedia content created by others, please obtain permission from the copyright owner prior to submission.

Style Guidelines for Articles

Article contributions must be referenced (as ‘Works Cited’) in MLA style, for example:

Probyn, Elspeth. Sexing the Self. London and New York : Routledge, 1993.

Please use single quotation marks (or double quotation marks within quotations), aligned margins, and single spacing throughout the text (with a space between each paragraph). Paragraphs should not be indented.

Articles are to be no longer than 4000 words in length, emailed as a Microsoft Word attachment.

Altitude follows the MLA style guidelines, except for citations within the text. These are to be provided with bibliographic information in the form of endnotes (numbering from 1 upwards). Multiple further citations of the same source can be indicated by page number within the text, ie. (12); this should be accompanied by a statement in the text’s preceding endnote such as: ‘Further references are included within the text’. Citing the page number within the text ceases when the next footnote appears, but later references to a work already cited can be shortened to author and title within the endnotes (ie. Gunew, Framing Marginality 13). Quotations are to be enclosed in single quotation marks (using double marks only with embedded quotations).


1.Gunew, Sneja. Framing Marginality: multicultural literary studies. Carlton: Melbourne University Press, 1994. 12.
2.Lingis, Alphonso. ‘Typhoons’. Cultural Studies Review. 8:1 (2002): 95.


In an electronic environment, where scrolling dominates and page numbers are not used, number all paragraphs as they are important organisational and referencing markers.


In an electronic environment, where scrolling dominates and page numbers are not used, headings and subheadings become even more important organisational markers.


Three levels of subheadings – title, heading, and subheading – should be adequate for full length article. The headings and subheadings will be stylised as shown here.


Altitude will underline the title of books, journals and video. We will use bold to indicate emphasis. We will use pale green to indicate Web links.
