Submission Guidelines

To submit manuscripts for consideration for publication, please visit

Full-length essays should be no longer than 10,000 words, inclusive of an abstract of 100-150 words, footnotes and bibliography. Short essays should be between 5,000 and 6,000 words and include an abstract.

To protect the anonymity of peer-reviewed content, authors should submit a separate cover page with the manuscript title and author names, affiliations, short bio note, and contact information. Authors should also remove name and affiliation from the abstract and manuscript.

Authors must ensure that proper acknowledgement of sources is given. References should follow the notes and bibliography format stipulated by the Chicago Manual of Style. Bibliographic citations provided in footnotes should be included in a separate bibliography.

Critical Times maintains the right to first publication of all submitted manuscripts. Submission of a manuscript to Critical Times is taken to indicate the author’s commitment to publish in the journal.

Critical Times will not review any submission simultaneously under review by another journal.

All unpublished manuscripts are treated as strictly confidential.
