Notes for Contributors

The Editors welcome the submission of manuscripts as main articles, discussion pieces, review articles or research notes. All material must be original, must not have appeared elsewhere, and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere while under consideration by Millennium. The approximate length required for main articles is 7,000-9,000 words (including footnotes but excluding an abstract of up to 150 words and up to six keywords), for discussion pieces and research notes 5,000 words, and for review articles 3,000-4,000 words. Review articles should discuss two to five recently published books on related subjects. On all matters concerning the publication of submitted manuscripts the Editors' decision is final.

Millennium has a fully web-based system for the submission and review of manuscripts. All submissions must be made online at the Millennium website.|


Please log onto the website. If you are a new user, you will need to take a few minutes and first create an account. Follow the instructions and please ensure to enter a current and correct email address. When you have finished, your User ID and password is sent via email immediately. If you have already created an account but have forgotten your details type your email address in the 'Password Help' to receive an emailed reminder. Full instructions for uploading the manuscript are provided on the website.

Submissions should be made by logging in and selecting the Author Center and the 'Click here to Submit a New Manuscript' option. Follow the instructions on each page, clicking the 'Next' button on each screen to save your work and advance to the next screen. If at any stage you have any questions or require the user guide, please use the 'Get Help Now' button at the top right of every screen. Further help is available through ScholarOne's® Manuscript CentralTM customer support at +1 434 817 2040 x 167.

To upload your files, click on the 'Browse' button and locate the file on your computer. Select the designation of each file (i.e. main document, submission form, figure) in the drop down next to the browse button. When you have selected all files you wish to upload, click the 'Upload Files' button.

Review your submission (in both PDF and HTML formats) and then click the Submit button.

You may suspend a submission at any point before clicking the Submit button and save it to submit later. After submission, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. You can also log back into your author centre at any time to check the status of your manuscript.

Please ensure that you submit editable/source files only (Microsoft Word or RTF) and that your document does not include page numbers; the Millennium SAGETRACK system will generate them for you, and then automatically convert your manuscript to PDF for peer review. Furthermore, it is imperative that authors remove from their submissions any information that will identify them or their affiliations to reviewers.  All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and requests for revisions, will be by email.

If you would like to discuss your paper prior to submission, or seek advice on the submission process please contact the editors, at the following email address:

Authors submitting revised manuscripts should follow the instructions above to submit through the SAGETRACK system. To create a revision, go to the 'Manuscripts with Decisions' option in your Author Dashboard and select 'create a revision in the 'Action' column. Authors of all revised submissions should, when prompted, provide information explaining the changes in your manuscript. As this will be provided to reviewers, it is important that authors do not identify themselves in these responses.
