Note to Contributors

Catalyst is an interdisciplinary journal. We welcome scholarly articles from all fields and any specialization.


Articles submitted to Catalyst should be written in a simple and clear language, avoiding unnecessary jargon. We realize that technical language is sometimes necessary, but it should be kept to a minimum, as should footnotes and tables.


We do not have a standard word limit, but we encourage contributors to not exceed 10,000 words.


Sources should be cited in footnotes according to the Chicago Manual of Style. Authors do not need to provide a bibliography.


Please email drafts to We will try to respond as quickly as possible, but may require a month for review.
