Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- PREVIOUS PUBLICATION: 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).
- PLAGIARISM: The text is, to the author's best knowledge, not taken in whole or in part, without citation, from another work. Nor does the article contain claims that, to the best of the author's knowledge, are protected by another individual's or organization's intellectual property.
- REFERENCE LINKS: Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- STYLE: The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end. The author has only used a single return, rather than a double return with an empty line between paragraphs. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines (at the bottom of the Submissions page and reachable via the menu) and is, to the best of the author's knowledge, free of typographic or major grammatical errors.
- SOFTWARE: The submission file is in Microsoft Word, OpenOffice, or an RTF document file format.
Articles are the core of Ham Journal. They are peer-reviewed, well thought out and researched presentations of evidence-based theories, experiments and constructs.
Ham Journal is happy to be a conduit for thoughtful editorials whose vision bring a positive contribution to amateur radio. Unlike Ham Journal articles that require rigorous scientific or technical validity, Ham Journal editorials are meant to be a conduit for thought-provoking discourse. Authors are invited to provide guidance, insight, advice on how to improve or otherwise shift a position or approach. However, much like Ham Journal articles, editorials are subject to peer-review to ensure that they, despite being opinions, contribute to amateur radio in a constructive manner.
Articles published in Ham Journal are without commercial intent. They remain the property of the author who does, however, authorize Ham Journal, Ham Community and its affiliated sites, to republish the article in whole or in part with the understanding that said republication will never be directly monetized.
