Who Can Submit?
Any undergraduate at The University of Southern Mississippi may submit an original article to be considered for publication in The Catalyst provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article.
General Submission Rules
Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in a journal or book (print or electronic). By submitting material to The Catalyst, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at The Catalyst. If you have concerns about the submission terms for The Catalyst, please contact the editors.
The Catalyst has no general rules about the formatting of articles upon initial submission. There are, however, rules governing the formatting of the final submission. See Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for details. Although bepress can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to produce an electronic version of the article as a Microsoft Word file. Authors who wish to submit a multimedia file for the journal should contact the editors.
Attribution and Usage Policies
Reproduction, posting, transmission or other distribution or use of the article or any material therein shall be governed by the terms of the Creative Commons license that the author assigns to the article at the time of publication.
People seeking an exception, or who have questions about use, should contact the editors.
