Call for Papers – Kaleidoscope


Kaleidoscope is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal edited by postgraduate researchers at Durham University. Working under the auspices of Durham’s Institute of Advanced Study,

Kaleidoscope is designed to foster international communication between postgraduates in different disciplines, to promote excellence in interdisciplinary research, and raise awareness of

the IAS as a public forum for interdisciplinary scholarship. A key feature of Kaleidoscope is that it embodies and connects diverse subject areas in a single publication, whether in the Arts and

Humanities, the Sciences, or the Social Sciences. The IAS publishes a new theme for study each year, and submissions are particularly encouraged relating to this theme.


The theme carried over academic year 2015-16 is ‘Evidence’ Suggestions include, but are not limited to:


  • Evidence and Objectivity in Scientific Research
  • Evidence in Law and Forensics
  • Religious Experience and Subjective Evidence
  • Textual and Archaeological Evidence in the Study of History
  • Evidence in Establishing Policy and Regulation


Recognising that different disciplines apply different styles and standards of writing, we welcome

material of individual or collaborative authorship in a variety of formats, including, but not

restricted to:


  • Full-length articles (7000-10000 words) of original scholarship in your


  • Shorter articles reflecting on how the current theme relates to your discipline;
  • Reflections on how your work is informed by working across disciplines;
  • Short book reviews (1000 words);
  • Review essays (4000 words)


Please note, articles should be comprehensible to those from outside your field. Further details
