Information for Contributors

Contemporary Review is a double blind reviewed journal, set out by the Academy of Spirituality and Professional Excellence, ASPEX, with the purpose of publishing papers and articles pertaining to enhancement of the quality of life for all living beings.

The journal focuses on a dual reading audience:

  1. Scholars with an interest in the topics presented, and
  2. Students and other individuals, interested in simply worded, but quality reading.

Based on the journal's reading audience, the types of papers considered for publication are also dual: there is a scholarly section, and a viewpoint-based part.

  • The Scholarly section consists of papers varying in length between 2000 and 5000 words, with proper citation and adherence to APA V format.
  • The Viewpoint section consists of papers varying in length between 700 and 2000 words, written in more popular language, and thus more appealing to non-scholars.

Invitation for Submission

Contemporary Review, CR, invites scholars, student-scholars,  coaches, executives, and other individuals affiliated to various disciplines, to participate in the journal. Because our focus, as indicated above, is geared toward improving the quality of life in a trans-disciplinary sense, CR accepts papers that are reviewing processes, procedures, research outcomes, and suggestions in a wide range of areas.

All submissions are subject to a two-person blind peer review process.

Please email your submissions to:

CR reserves the rights to amend, modify, add to, or delete its rules, policies, and procedures with regard to its institutional relationship with authors (contributors) as deemed necessary by the administration. Any such amendment, modification, addition, or deletion shall not be considered a violation of the relationship between CR and authors (contributors). Each paper will first be reviewed, while the registration fee will be paid by the contributor upon acceptance of the paper. 

Papers and registration fee for the next edition of the CR must be submitted prior to June 15, 2010.

The publication fee must be received within two weeks after the paper has been accepted. Paying the publication fee entitles authors to publish the paper in the journal and to receive a copy of the publication.

It is important that each author pays the registration fee in a timely manner, whether individually, or as a team, when performed as such. CR accepts only money orders and personal checks. There is a $300 cancellation fee on cancellations received prior to publication deadline. There will be no refunds on cancellations received after the dead line.
