Guidelines for Paper Submission
We welcome submission of papers in the fields of science, philosophy and religion from scholars of all religious and non-religious traditions that promote human reasoning, understanding, compassion, inclusiveness, objectivity and open-mindedness.
Submissions will be judged on their originality, clarity, potential impact, scholarship and thoroughness in analytical and synthetic reasoning. The decision to accept or reject any submission for publication on the website is solely that of the website’s administrator.
All submissions (1) should be provided in both the PDF and the WORD formats, (2) should use size-12 fonts and double-spaced lines, (3) should have a word count of 3,000-10,000 if written in Chinese or 1,500-5,000 if written in English, and (4) should have not been published anywhere in any form or format before. Failing to meet these requirements or any requirements stated in the Guidelines will result in automatic rejection without notification.
By submitting to the website via [email protected], the author indemnifies the website, its administrator and NERRI, Inc. of any and all legal and financial claims for any wrongdoings or any allegations of wrongdoing.
By submitting to the website, the author also grants the website and NERRI, Inc. the copyright of the submission if it is eventually published on the website. The author is responsible for securing permissions from holders of any copyrighted material that is included in the submission.
Upon notification of the publication of their submission on the website , the authors of the submission, if wishing to receive a US$1,000 reward, shall provide to the website’s administrator their verifiable identities, addresses and bank accounts. When such information is not provided within 30 days of the notification, the offer of US$1,000 per published paper will be withdrawn.
Accepted papers can be published on the website with pseudo names.
The US$1,000 reward is offered per paper published on the website. How the reward is to be shared by the authors of a published paper is a matter to be decided amongst the individual authors. The website, its administrator and NERRI, Inc. are considered having fully fulfilled their legal and financial responsibilities once the reward, US$1,000 (or the equivalent in local currency) in total, has been transmitted to any author or any combination of authors of a published paper.
While the website intents to offer the US$1,000 reward for up to 1,000 published papers, the website, its administrator or NERRI, Inc. reserves the right to terminate the reward program anytime solely at its discretion.
The following statement must be included in the email submission: “The author of the submission understands, agrees, accepts and obliges completely with the Guidelines for Paper Submission of nerri.org and the website’s Disclaimers.”
NERRI, Inc. is a registered cooperation in the United States and is an IRS designated non-profit foundation.
