Submitting an Article
AQC accepts two types of research papers:
- long form papers usually delivered in the Lodge of 6,000 – 10,000 words; and
- shorter papers on a topic thought worthy of publication (1,000 – 4,000 words).
Quatuor Coronati was founded to encourage and pursue research into Freemasonry. Papers submitted for publication are expected to be factual and substantiated. Freemasonry is a subject where evidence may sometimes be absent and an element of speculation may be inevitable, but this should be distinguished from those areas of the paper that can be substantiated.
Papers are sent for blind peer review before acceptance and authors may be asked to modify their submission in line with reviewers’ comments. Papers should be original and not have been published elsewhere. Decisions of the editorial committee are final.
Published papers become the copyright of Quatuor Coronati / QC Correspondence Circle Limited, although the author is automatically granted a licence to reprint any paper, provided the fact that it was published in AQC is acknowledged. Articles cannot be published by third parties without the author’s consent and that of QC/QCCC. The author is responsible for obtaining permission for any images used and for any fees required in that respect.
Authors may wish to contact the editor to determine whether the proposed subject is suitable for inclusion. Articles must be submitted electronically to the editor and not by post. They should follow the format set out in the AQC Style Guide.
