Submission Guidelines

CSSAAME aims to produce content that is not only thoughtful but also well-written and accessible to a multidisciplinary audience. Therefore, clear, well-articulated, jargon-free prose will be highly valued when submissions are evaluated. Response time is generally three to six months.

Submission Types and Length

Because CSSAAME accepts submissions in various forms, there is no set length for them. As a general guideline, full-length articles are approximately 8,000 to 10,000 words. Other types of submissions for which word count is not an adequate measure (for instance, photo-essays) should be between ten and twenty-five pages.

We also encourage the submission of work that incorporates other media, such as images, video, or sound. If you would like to submit such work for consideration, please contact the editorial office directly with an abstract or proposal.


Submissions are required to have both footnote citations and a bibliography. Provide a shortened citation in the footnotes rather than the full citation, which is included only in the bibliography. For reference, see section 14.14 of The Chicago Manual of Style, sixteenth edition. Authors are encouraged to limit the use of footnotes to acknowledgment of sources and parenthetical or tangential ideas. Self-citation is unnecessary.


In general, a word should be transliterated only if there is no acceptable English equivalent. If no such equivalent is available, authors should follow the ALA-LC romanization tables for the respective language ( when possible. Translated Arabic and Persian text includes no diacritical marks except for ayn and hamza.
