Information For Authors

Methodist Review has an open submission policy: authors are invited to submit the full text of articles on any appropriate subject to be considered for publication in the journal. All articles submitted to the journal are expected to conform to the requirements set forth in the MR Author Guidelines and Submission Instructions. If a manuscript departs from these guidelines and instructions in major ways, it will be returned to the author for correction before it is considered for publication.

Authors may submit only one article at a time for consideration by MR. An article being submitted to MR must not be submitted simultaneously to another journal. Articles that have been published or are to be published elsewhere, in whole or in part, whether in English or in another language, should not be submitted to MR. If any portion of an article has been previously published elsewhere, the author must specify the full extent and details of that previous publication and provide copyright clearance for its publication in MR. For these matters, see the MR Copyright, “Fair Use,” and Permissions Guidelines.

When you have logged in to the MR website, go to the User Home screen (accessible on the navigation menu bar above). You should see an Author link just below the words "Methodist Review" on that screen. When you click on the Author link, any Active Submissions that you have previously made will be displayed. Click on the underlined title of an active submission to check on its status. Click on Start a New Submission to begin the five-step submission process.

If you do not see the Author link on the User Home page, then click on Edit My Profile under the My Account section. When the Edit Profile screen is displayed, scroll down toward the bottom to the Roles section and ensure that the check boxes beside both Reader and Author are selected, then click on Save at the bottom of the screen. You will be returned to the User Home page and should now see the Author link on that page.
