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 Microsoft Word or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs and DOIs 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.

Please follow the guidelines below before submitting your content. More information about the journal can be found in About the Journal. The main themes of the journal are listed on the journal homepage.

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). Submissions that are uploaded to a Preprint server, which are not yet published, are accepted.

The submission file is in Microsoft Word or RTF document file format.

The submission document is based on the QuiViRR DOTX stylesheet (download the dotx template file from the link). Please use the formatting styles available in this stylesheet to conform your submission to the house style in advance. It will make copyediting and layout much easier if and when the submission is accepted for publication. Instructions are contained in the stylesheet document itself. Make a copy, delete the text, insert your text and format your own text using the appropriate styles. Alternatively, add the stylesheet template to your word document, and reformat using the appropriate styles.

Please note that the author(s) are responsible for checking the language of their submission, especially if English is not their native language. Submissions with lots of spelling and grammatical mistakes will be returned to the author(s). If the submission is accepted, then accurate copy editing is also the responsibility of the author(s) unless otherwise communicated by the editors. Using the stylesheet early on will go a long way towards achieving that goal.

Supplementary files are uploaded to OJS or links are provided to an archive or repository. The files that are archived or linked to a repository may need to be anonymised if double blind peer review is required.

The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses).

Make sure that all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end. In addition, they should also be uploaded as supplementary files (TIFF, BMP or SVG formats in high resolution 300 dpi) at the submission stage.

Authors are required to obtain legal copyright permission for QuiViRR to publish any images, illustrations, figures, tables, graphics that are contained in their article for which the author(s) does not hold copyright, and to give copyright information at the appropriate place in their article.

Transcripts can be included as plain text with a monospaced font or as high resolution images.

Links to (unlisted) videos on YouTube or another public streaming service can be provided, or the videos can be uploaded to an open data archive, such as Zenodo, OSF or Figshare, and a link provided.
