POLICIES 

Papers submitted to the JKG should be original, unpublished and  not  under consideration for any other publication.  All submissions must comply with JKG copyright declaration

By submitting an article, the author warrants that the work is not an infringement of any existing copyrights and will indemnify the journal against any breach of such warranty. 

Papers must be submitted in well-written English with the general audience in mind.  If uncommon terminologies are used, the meanings have to be explained. 

If accepted papers do not meet the language standards of the journal, authors will be responsible for revising them, enlisting professional help if necessary. To that end, we encourage soliciting feedback from author’s colleagues prior to submission. 
All papers submitted to the  journal are checked for plagiarism. JKG does not charge any submission fees or  processing fees.

Author Guidelines 

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check the compliance of their submissions with all of the following items. 

1. Author(s) need to register with the JKG at http://journals.sfu.ca/jkg prior to submitting an article. Registration and login are required to submit items online, and to check the status of current submission. 

2. Published articles from the previous issues of the Journal of Knowledge Globalization may be consulted for examples of acceptable works. 

3.  While submitting the paper, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review should be followed. 

4. The author(s) should not use their names in the body of the paper or identify them directly or indirectly anywhere in the paper. 

5. An abstract of 100 to 150 words is required in a separate page with the title of the paper. The author(s) should not be identified in the abstract. The abstract should precisely describe the purpose of the paper, the method, and the results and conclusions. Following the abstract, three to five keywords describing the topic and category of the article should be provided.
