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 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 an editable format (e.g. Microsoft Word) and the file has been made web accessible.
  • Where available, URLs and DOI-numbers for the references have been provided.

Author Guidelines

All manuscripts must be submitted via Online Submission. Remember to add all co-authors during the submission. If you need technical help, see this Authoring manual for the series' platform (Open Journal Systems) or contact

Third-party material

Does your report contain any material (such as images) whose rights belong to other people or organizations? If yes, you need to obtain permission to publish this material before you submit the report to Septentrio Reports. You can also try to look for images licensed for reuse at the CC Search portal. Remember to attribute correctly.

Web accessibility – readability for all

If you submit Word-files, make sure you use styles. 

All manuscripts submitted to Septentrio Educational must be web accessible, so that people with disabilities can read them. If you are using Microsoft Word, run the Accessibility Checker tool on your document and fix any accessibility issues BEFORE you submit your report. In addition, pay attention to the following:

  • Headings must be formatted with a heading style (not just as a bigger bold font).
  • Paragraphs that look like lists, must also be formatted as lists.
  • Images must be set "In Line with Text" and have alternative text.
  • Tables must have header rows, column headings and alternative text. Tables should be used exclusively to present tabular data or content – do not use tables for mere layout purposes.

DOIs in reference lists

The reference list must include DOIs for those sources that have them. A DOI must be formatted as a clickable URL. If you are unsure whether your references have DOIs associated with them, you can use this useful tool from Crossref.
