Open Access

Publication costs of the journal are covered by the publisher. There is no charge for submitting a paper to the journal.


Peer Review

All submissions are subject to double blind peer review.  Peer review feedback will be sent to all submitters in due course, with details concerning the possible reworking of documents where relevant.  All final decisions concerning publication of submissions will reside with the editors based on the article's fit with the issue theme, the number of submissions received and the blind peer review process. Opinions published are those of the authors and not necessarily subscribed to by the editors, or the institution.



The journal is archived by Legal Deposit in print and digital versions at the National Library of New Zealand.



Junctures publishes high quality critically informed interdisciplinary academic material which nonetheless is suitable for a wide-ranging readership. Given the inter-disciplinary nature of the journal, all work should be presented in a way which is open to readers from outside the particular field.


We use:

  • English spelling
  • Double quotation marks
  • Punctuation inside of quotation marks
  • Endnote markers outside of punctuation



Junctures uses the Chicago Manual of Style. We use Endnotes as our reference system.
