Authors are invited to submit original contributions, which should be preceded by expressions of interest, delivered in PDF. Please follow the steps described bellow.

Step #1

Subsequently to reading the Journal’s Mission , Scope and Editorial Process, send an expression of interest (PDF) to adriana[@] and carolina.martins[@] . Please name the subject “Live Interfaces Journal > expression of interest”.
The PDF should include:
– Title
– Author(s) / affiliation(s)
– 70 words Bio(s) & URL(s) with +info
– 250 words Abstract
– Bibliography (APA)
– Special technical requirements, if any

Step #2

Once you receive the submission credentials by email, you will be able to create and edit a WordPress “post” (actually a webpage with unique URL), through a simple graphical interface that enables the insertion of contents and metadata. A brief tutorial with screenshots is available here.

Detailed editorial instructions are available here. Please read them carefully.

Keep in mind:

  • The submitted proposals must include the full name of the authors and co-authors. Further contributions must be mentioned as ‘Acknowledgements’.
  • Copyrights of media contents (sounds, images, videos, etc.) must be displayed next to those contents. The authors are responsible for requesting permissions.
  • All sources cited in the text must be referenced.
  • It is the author’s responsibility to include accurate, complete and properly formatted citations.
  • Cited works and credits should include hyperlinks when possible.

The authors save submissions as ‘drafts’. They are subsequently published in private mode, so as to enable peer review. Accepted works only become public after the editorial process is completed.

Step #3

Your submission and final publication – made with WP – will be hosted in a trusted server (the one of the Journal). We will also keep a copy of your work, so as to assure its perseveration independently from WP. Please copy/paste the final version of your WP “post” into a word document, and save it as html. Place that document into a folder named LI1.1-submission-tilte_Name_Surname. Place all the images, videos and audio files into the same folder. Compact the folder and upload it to an online server (e.g., Dropbox, Google Drive, etc). Send us the link, and we will upload the folder to the server of the journal.
