Submissions

Jewels Magazine encourages the submission of articles that bear directly on encouraging, empowering and proving thoughts that bring about a positive change. Articles must be primarily based on the truth of the Word of God. We do not want articles that bring about a self-opinionated negative objective. The length of articles is normally no greater than 1,000.

In the interest of broadening our scope and increasing accessibility, Jewels Magazine has made available nine categories for targeted pieces.

Please review the following topics in preparing your article for submission. If you have any questions or if you need assistance, please feel free to contact Jewels Magazine using the contact form.

Submission Requirements

Articles for submission must be previously unpublished and in English. Papers should be well-written, and we encourage grace as well as clarity. It is important that papers be copy-edited carefully before submission. Drafts are not acceptable. In order to ensure diversity of subject matter, approaches, and voices, articles by authors who have not published in Jewels Magazine for at least a year prior to submission are normally given precedence. In submitting work to Jewels Magazine, authors agree to the policies of this platform, including free access and use of the material published in it with, of course, proper acknowledgment of authorship and source. If you have any questions about whether your article is appropriate for Jewels, send it directly to the editor for a preliminary review.

The decision of the editorial board is final.

Authors keep their copyright. Note, Jewels Magazine is a digital magazine that exists to bring encouraging and empowering articles to its readers. Authors who submit work to Jewels Magazine agree to this intent, and no monies will be paid by Jewels Magazine to use these articles.

Because Jewels Magazine relies on the generosity of editors who contribute their time to review articles, we ask that authors not submit their work to other journals at the same time. By using computer technology throughout, we expect that the review process will move quickly and that authors will be notified in a reasonable time. In sending work to Jewel Magazine for possible publication, the submitter attests that the work is original and that he or she is the author, that it has not been published, and that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Submission Guidelines

Our submission guidelines have been carefully prepared to facilitate the editorial process of publishing articles online. Strict adherence to formatting guidelines (described below) has three purposes. First, consistent and uniform formatting allows the editors and reviewers to concentrate on the content of articles submitted. Second, it allows for reliable translation of authors’ formatting to the web page. The third consideration is both aesthetic and practical: multiple stylistic formats are ugly and distracting on a web page and interfere with reading. Therefore, please observe the following formatting instructions carefully. Submissions which do not adhere to these instructions will be returned to the author.

Formatting the Article

The article should be prepared according to the following guidelines:

(1) The length of articles is normally no greater than 1,000 words but should not exceed 1,200 words. An article exceeding the length limit will be returned to the author.

(2) At the beginning of the article, the title, abstract and a list of key words should immediately precede the text.

(3) Font should be 11-point Arial, whether in normal, bold, or italic, including endnotes. Please do not insert line breaks in the text or special spacing for formatting.

(4) The paragraph break should be indicated by an extra line space rather than an indentation at the beginning of a paragraph.

(5) Only the left hand margin should be justified.

Rights and Permission

It is the responsibility of the author to obtain permission for the use of any copyrighted material, including images.

Acceptable File Types

Please submit texts in MS Word.

Submitting an Article

An e-mail message with the article as an attachment to Jewels Magazine should be sent to submissions@jewelsmagazine.org. Use “Submission” as the subject in the email address block. The message should include (1) the author’s name, (2) the title of the article, (3) an abstract of no more than 150 words, and (4) relevant information about the author, including bio, mailing and e-mail addresses.

Once you have prepared your paper observing the formatting, attach it to the e-mail message and click “Send.” An acknowledgement will be sent indicating that the paper has been received. There is no charge for submitting an article for review or publication.
