Submission Instructions

Papers should be approximately 4,000 words in length, and use the Harvard style of referencing. Please preface submission with an abstract (100-150 words) and a list of 3-5 key words.

Authors should submit two versions of their manuscript: one containing the complete text and a second without any information identifying the author. The anonymised manuscript will be sent to referees.

In addition to the two manuscript files, authors must include a separate document containing their contact details and a short biographical statement of no more than 100 words. Submissions are accepted electronically as Word documents (.doc) and should be addressed to Zeena Feldman, the journal editor: culturalpolicyjournal[at]

All submissions undergo double blind review.
