Author Guidelines

The D.U.Quark will contain three peer-reviewed sections (Primary and Secondary Research, Research News, and Creative Content). All submissions to these sections follow a double-blind peer review process with members of the D.U.Quark staff. The journal will peer review and accept articles on a rolling basis and publish continuously.

Before submitting an article below, please read the guidelines below and follow the instructions to remove author information from word documents. In addition, authors are advised to read the guidelines to peer reviewers to understand how peer reviewers evaluate submitted articles. Please note that all forms and guidelines are subject to change. Once your submission is ready, please send it, all figures, and necessary consent forms to quarksubmissions@gmail.com.

Creative Content

These submissions can range from informative to funny.  Examples of creative content include: videos, cartoons, concept artwork, book reviews, jokes, top ten lists, experiences, opinions, etc. Creative content submissions could be geared towards either specific or broad audiences.
