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 submission is original and attributable predominantly to its identified authors.
  • 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 submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The submission adheres to APA Style (7th Edition) for paper format, in-text citation, reference listings, grammar, and style.
  • The submission has been completely anonymized and contains no information that could be easily used to identify the author or source of the research.
  • The word count runs between 3,000 to 6,000 words, not including references.

Author Guidelines

Artivate disseminates new thinking and perspectives on arts entrepreneurship theory, practice, and pedagogy. The Journal publishes peer-reviewed original research at the intersection of artistic expression and entrepreneurial action, welcoming theoretical, applied, and creative inquiry. See "About the Journal" for a full description.

Neither Artivate nor the University of Arkansas Press charge any author fees for manuscript submission, processing, and/or publishing materials in the journal. The entire journal and all published material are made available free to the public on the Artivate website.

Artivate uses Open Journal Systems for the submission, review, and tracking of articles. Authors will find instructions for this system once they login or register to make a submission. To be considered for review, all submissions must meet the criteria in the "Submission Preparation Checklist" above. Information on APA Style (7th Edition) is available online, including paper format, in-text citation, reference listings, grammar, and style.

Authors may use artificial intelligence (AI) writing tools to support their work, but all artificially generated or derived text must be explicitly labeled, along with the model used (for example, “ChatGPT 3.5”).

During the submission process, you will be prompted to provide complete, accurate metadata, including a title and a subtitle, an abstract (150 to 250 words), and contributor information including full name and affiliation, biographies for all authors (50-word limit for each). In the case of multiple authors, one will need to be identified as the corresponding author, with their email address displayed in the article. 

If your article is accepted for publication, the editors will ask that you select and submit a rights-cleared image to serve as a cover image for your contribution. We recommend an image labeled with a Creative Commons license for any reuse. Insert at the end of your article a linked attribution for the image (see these best practices for guidance) rather than the image itself. 

Peer Review
As an academic journal,
Artivate follows a double-blind peer-review process in the selection and development of articles. The identity of both the author and the reviewers are kept hidden from everyone except the editors throughout the review. After our editors assess the suitability of each submission, they assign the article to at least two expert reviewers. Based on feedback from these reviewers, the article is assigned one of the following decisions:

  • Accept as is
  • Accept with revisions (the article requires minor changes before publication)
  • Another round of review (the article requires significant changes and an additional round of review)
  • Reject

To ensure double-blind review, all submissions must omit all identifying headers, footers, watermarks, and referential content, e.g., “I work at Jurassic University where I teach arts entrepreneurship.” Authors should also remove identifying information (metadata) from their submitted documents.

Privacy Statement

The names and email addresses entered in this journal site will be used exclusively for the stated purposes of this journal and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.

The Journal screens submissions for unoriginal material using online tools. By submitting your paper to Artivate you are agreeing to originality checks.
