Submitting scholarly articles for consideration by LDD has been designed to be fast and simple.
Your first step is to familiarise yourself with our Guidelines for Authors.
If you are submitting an article online to us for the first time, your second step is navigate to Author Registration and create a user profile. Directly after registering, you can proceed to the next step.
The third step is to login, navigate to Submit Articles > Upload an Article and click the Upload Facility link to access the submission form. (The link is visible only once you have logged in.)
- If you a returning online author (i.e. if you have already registered on our site in the past) and want to submit a new article for consideration, you can either follow the procedure above or login and click on the access-restricted Author tab on our masthead menu (it remains invisible until you are logged in).
Once you have submitted your article, you will receive an email receipt containing an additional group password which you can use in future to access our behind-the-scenes Author working area. Here you will able to correspond with the LDD editors as well as upload further documents, be they new articles or work-in-progress revisions; if one of your articles has been accepted for publication, you will also be able to download documents sent to you by the editors.
