For the 100th birthday of Joseph Weizenbaum in 2023, we are planning to publish a special issue about the role of digitalization in war and peace in the Weizenbaum Journal of the Digital Society
Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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 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).
- All authors' names were removed from the document.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
- The submission file is in Microsoft Word/Open Office or LaTeX file format and uses formatted headers (and levels).
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- If in English, the submission consistently uses either AE or BE spelling.
- The abstract does not exceed 150-200 words.
- All illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
- If applicable, figures are attached as vector-based graphics (e.g., .pdf or .eps) and will be uploaded in the next step.
This category is the most common. It can encompass a variety of genres and methodologies, ranging from conceptual papers, empirical studies (qualitative, quantitative, mixed-method), papers that focus on modeling, to design research. The word count of papers should be between 5,000 and 10,000 words. For well-justified reasons of complexity or scale (e.g., historical analyses, literature reviews), extended papers may be submitted and the word limit may be exceeded. Manuscripts that exceed the recommended length should justify this in the cover letter. As a rule of thumb, we urge the authors to write as concisely as possible to avoid lengthy papers.
This category typically includes invited opinion papers, essays, manifestos, and relevant reviews. Generally, commentaries are invited, but we are also open to unsolicited submissions of pressing issues surrounding digitalisation. In this case, we recommend getting in contact with the editors prior to submission. An approximate expected submission length of commentaries is 5,000 words, up to a maximum of 10,000 words. Decisions on commentaries will be taken directly by the editors, and hence, will not be subject to the regular review process.
