Submission Checklist

Before submitting your work to this journal, please follow the below checklist to ensure your submission conforms to the journal's standards:

  1. The submission has not been previously published (not including public-posting of videos on a personal site or video hosting platform), nor is it being considered by another journal.
  2. Any third party owned materials used have been identified with appropriate credit lines, and permission obtained from the copyright holder for all formats of the journal. [in]Transition operates under U.S. Fair Use guidelines, and does not require permission for critical, transformative use of copyrighted sources. We default to CC BY 4.0 as the license for articles - if you have particular reasons to select a different option, please explain in the creator statement.
  3. All authors qualify as authors and have given permission to be listed on the submitted submission, as per the publisher's guidance on authorship.
  4. Authors should declare any competing interests when they submit articles to the journal. For information on the publisher’s 'Competing Interests' policy, see the publisher's 'Malpractice Statement'. Information on how to declare a competing interest can be found here.
  5. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the journal's 'Author Guidelines'.
  6. Tables for the creator statement are all cited in the main text and are included within the text document.
  7. Figures for the creator statement are all cited in the main text and are uploaded as supplementary files. Figures/images have a resolution of at least 150dpi (300dpi or above preferred). The files are in one of the following formats: JPG, TIFF, GIF, PNG, EPS (to maximise quality, the original source file is preferred).
  8. Video files in .mp4 format may be submitted via another streaming platform like Vimeo, but [in]Transition will need to download the file(s) to repost on our own video platform for publication.
  9. Please include a brief biographical statement in your uploaded text document.
Copyright Notice

Authors retain the rights to their videos and creator statements, granting [in]Transition the right to publish their work. While we allow creators to determine their own copyright stipulations based on their country of residence, we encourage creators to license their work under Creative Commons (CC BY 4.0) in accordance with OLH's 'Open Access Policy'.

Peer Review

Most [in]Transition articles feature three elements: a videographic work, a statement by the creator of the video, and one or two signed peer reviews solicited by the editorial team. These open peer reviews indicate the evaluation and development process that preceded the publication of the video, with experts assessing the project, offering feedback for potential revisions, and recommending publication. Reviewers have a chance to revise their commentaries for publication, focusing on how the video and accompanying statement function as scholarship.

For further information on the peer review process for [in]Transition, please see the journal's 'Peer Review Process' on the 'Journal Policies' page.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

The maximum timescale for the review process is intended to be four months from the point of submission.


[in]Transition allows the following licences for submission:

  • CC BY 4.0 - More Information  
    Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use. No additional restrictions — You may not apply legal terms or technological measures that legally restrict others from doing anything the license permits.
Publication Fees

This journal is published by the Open Library of Humanities (OLH). Unlike many open-access publishers, OLH does not charge any author fees. This does not mean that we do not have costs. Instead, our costs are paid by an international library consortium.

If your institution is not currently supporting the platform, we request that you ask your librarian to sign up. The OLH is extremely cost effective and is a not-for-profit charity. However, while we cannot function without financial support and we encourage universities to sign up, institutional commitment is not required to publish with us.

Publication Frequency

The journal is published online, normally four times per year (Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall). Special topic issue proposals are welcomed and will be rotated into the four-issue schedule as seen fit by the editorial team.
