Submission Preparation Checklist

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 file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • The text is double-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.

Author Guidelines

RHR invites original essays based in theory and informed of philosophical perspectives. We encourage interdisciplinary approaches for illuminating the topic and discussion. We do NOT invite policy papers and/or papers based in quantitative method as we do not have expertise in these fields.

    Types of Submissions:

     We accept three types of submissions a) Full length Articles (Max. 8,000 words), b) Focus Articles (Max. 4000 words), c) Book Reviews (Max 1000 words).

      RHR practices a double-blind review process. Because submissions are evaluated anonymously, the author’s name should appear only on the title page. Electronic versions of the manuscript should be submitted as Microsoft Word. Full Length Articles should ideally not exceed 8,000 words, including notes, tables, etc. All article submissions should include an abstract no longer than 120 words and a brief author bio. Previously published work or work currently under consideration elsewhere will not be reviewed. Please also note that we check all articles for similarity index and plagiarism by using iThenticate. We also welcome Focus Articles, which should not exceed 4000 words, and book reviews, which should not exceed 1000 words.

     Method of Citation and Reference

     RHR follows the guidelines of the Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition). RHR uses end notes as the method of citation. Manuscripts not submitted in accordance to these standards may not be considered for review.

     Ethical Guidelines for Editors, Authors, and Reviewers

     RHR follows HEC's ethical guidelines. Apart from that RHR has also declared it own ethical and malpractice statement. Both are given below:
