To submit through our website, you will first need to do the following:

  1. Register a username. You can do this by selecting the "Register" tab in the top menu.
  2. Register as an author. You will have the option to select "author" in addition to "reader" or "reviewer" as part of the registration process.
  3. Login with your username. You can do this in the sidebar on the right of your screen.
  4. Once you are logged in, select "User Home" from the top menu. This should be in the same position that "Register" was in before you logged in.
  5. On the "User Home" page. Select "New Submission" from the row labeled "Author."
  6. From that point the process should be self-explanatory.

Unsolicited articles and book reviews submitted by mail cannot be returned and will be acknowledged only if accompanied by a functioning e-mail address. There is no submission fee or monetary remuneration for accepted submissions unless otherwise noted. Submissions should not be under consideration for publication with other journals.

Manuscript Requirements

The editors welcome articles written by professional scholars in economics, theology, ethics, and philosophy. Younger scholars and those in the process of completing doctorates are also encouraged to submit manuscripts for publication.

The manuscript should be submitted in double line spacing with a standard one inch margins around the perimeter of the document. The author's credentials (i.e., autobiographical data) must be uploaded as a separate, supplementary file and the author should not be identified anywhere in the article. (Step 4 of the submissions process allows authors to upload suplimentary files.) There is no need to submit print copies of the manuscript.

Articles should be between 3000 and 6000 words in length (not including references) and include a title of not more than 12 words. Authors must supply an abstract of 100-150 words.

Given the interdisciplinary nature of the journal, the editorial staff requests that articles with a strongly quantitative aspect be submitted to other more suitable publications. Figures, charts, and diagrams should be kept to a minimum.

Book reviews should be 750-1000 words and will not be accepted if fewer than 500 or more than 1500 words. All reviews must supply the following information: author, title, publisher, year of publication, number of pages, and price.

A brief autobiographical note should accompany any submission and include full name, title, affiliation, mailing address, e-mail address, and full international contact information uploaded as a separate, supplementary file (mentioned above). Headings must be short, clearly defined, and unnumbered. Endnotes should be used and must be in accord with Chicago Manual of Style standards. For examples of this style, consult the Journal of Markets & Morality style guide available on-line here.

Once accepted for publication, the final version of the manuscript must be sent as an e-mail attachment saved in a standard electronic format (such as doc, docx, or rtf). Figures that are provided electronically must be in tif, gif, or pic file extensions. All figures and graphics must also be supplied as high quality originals.

If accepted for publication, the author grants the publisher the right of a third party or third parties to reproduce, incorporate, and distribute the work into one or more databases, and to deliver or transmit the content of the work, in whole or in part, for display, storage, copying and printing by authorized users of the databases or products. Distribution may include sale of individual articles on behalf of the Journal of Markets & Morality through various sub-contracting vendors. Such databases and products may be distributed by a third party/third parties or its/their distributors. The author will receive no compensation for reproduction and distribution. The third party or parties have contracted with the publisher to reproduce, incorporate, and distribute all Journal of Markets & Morality articles.

  1. Have you removed all identifying information (author name, affiliation, email) from your submission?
