Call for papers

Small States & Territories (SST) invites authors to submit manuscripts to be considered for publication. 

Manuscripts need to engage with the notion of smallness, statehood and/or territorial (non-sovereign) status in their content and argument. The Editorial Board of SST is committed to only publish material where the notion of smallness, combined with either sovereign or non-sovereign status, is the focus of the argument, and not just a coincidental locus, or backdrop.

Small States & Territories also invites authors to consider submitting proposals for special thematic sections to appear in SST. A minimum of three manuscripts on a related topic that are deemed to be publishable following suitable peer review constitute a thematic section. Such thematic sections will appear as part of the normal, biannual issues of SST; and not as separate, stand-alone issues. The lead time between the acceptance of a proposal for a thematic section and its actual publication is a minimum of 18 months.

The act of submission of a manuscript by an author affirms that the author has: neither published the same manuscript for publication elsewhere, nor has submitted it to be considered for publication elsewhere at the same time.

The decision on whether a manuscript will be accepted for publication rests with the Editor.
