Submitting an Article

We would like to publish your original research, reviews, methodological and case studies, and theoretical articles that offer new insights on current topics. We seek submissions from undergraduate students and their research groups. Original work based on honours theses, independent research projects, special topics seminars, research assistantships, summer internship programs (e.g., NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award), and similar projects are appropriate for submission.

This journal is concerned with novel, original, and meaningful contributions to the scientific community. Accordingly, we do not accept lab reports based on in-class ‘canned experiments.’ Furthermore, manuscripts must meet stringent content and style guidelines prior to consideration. For instance, it would not be appropriate to submit an honours thesis in its entirety; manuscripts for consideration in JUST@Dal must have the look and feel of an article in an established scholarly journal.

We accept submissions on a rolling basis. Contact us at just@dal.ca to express your intention to submit an article. When you are ready to submit, email the article as a Word document (not pdf) to just@dal.ca or drop it off at the Main Office of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, addressed to JUST@Dal, c/o Dr. Tim Juckes.
