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 content is the authors' original scholarship.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The article submission file is in Microsoft Word, with endnotes linked to the text.
  • Captions (with thumbnail images) are placed in a separate document, not the manuscript document.
  • Text and endnotes are properly formatted, according to the journal's Submission Guidelines and Style Sheet (link under Author Guidelines, below).
  • Quotations and foreign-language phrases and titles are accurately transcribed, including special characters and accent marks.
  • Names and titles of artworks as given in the text, notes, and captions match.

Author Guidelines

Submit to any section here (you will need to register if you do not already have login credentials). Scroll down for detailed instructions.

All submitted documents must conform to Panorama's Submission Guidelines and Style Sheet.

Submissions for Bully Pulpit, In the Round, Exhibition Reviews, and Book Reviews are by invitation only. If you would like to propose a work for one of those sections, please start by contacting the appropriate section editor: https://editions.lib.umn.edu/panorama/submissions/.

Images and Multimedia: Any article that will include images or multimedia must include a Caption List with Thumbnail Images in the original submission (example). This will allow editors and reviewers to envision the final article and will ultimately assist with production. Depending upon what section you are writing for and where you are in the process, it may be more appropriate to submit final, high-resolution images and any necessary copyright permissions at a later date. For specifications and guidelines, please consult our Information for Authors: Images and Multimedia document.

Feature Article

To ensure an anonymous review, please do not include the author name or institutional affiliation in any of the attached files. Please also scrub files of all identifying information. In Word, follow the folder path file/properties/advanced properties/summary to remove document author information.

Required attachments for Feature Article submissions:

  • 250-word abstract
  • Article Text
  • Caption List with Thumbnail Images (example)

Optional attachment:

  • Cover Letter (you may also include an informal message to the editors in the appropriate field)

Images: Those submitting Feature Articles SHOULD NOT include separate high-resolution image files with their initial submission. If the article is accepted for publication, we will then ask authors to consult our Information for Authors: Images and Multimedia document to acquire images and any necessary permissions.
