The IMAG Editorial Board evaluates the quality of submitted papers using the peer review process, an integral part of publishing. The final response to authors is supervised by the principal co-editors (or a guest editor), based on preliminary editorial evaluation and reviewer’s comments. The principal co-editors are responsible for delegating tasks to editorial members, managing submission, peer review process, and final decision for each manuscript.
All papers submitted are subject to peer review. The papers are evaluated by members of the editorial board and refereed within one month (average time for review; might varying from 1 to three months). Upon acceptance the papers are published online within 3 to six months.
Each IMAG issue is a collaborative project between editors and authors: the graphic editor can edit figures, change the image sequence, and choose a layout different from that which is proposed by the authors. Manuscripts submitted to IMAG will be considered for publication with the understanding that the same work has not been published and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original work with appropriately cited works of other authors used in the paper. The corresponding author should ensure that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication. When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to notify the publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. When a reader discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in a paper or book published by InSEA, or have any other complaint about editorial content (plagiarism, self-plagiarism, data fabrication and falsification, simultaneous submissions, duplicate publication, overlapping publications, redundant publications, selective reporting, misleading reporting, improper author contribution or attribution, gift authorship, citation manipulation, impact factor manipulation, index/influence measure manipulation, undeclared/fake financial support for publication, undisclosed conflicts of interest, etc.), he/she should make a complaint by e-mail to: secretary.insea[at]gmail.com.

CALL FOR NEXT ISSUE #13
Theme: Climate Literacy through Art
Climate Literacy through Art
The recent United Nations climate-change summit in Glasgow is one more reminder of how as a global society we need to turn ideas into action as we encounter global warming. With an increased emphasis to bring climate literacy into schools, art educators can play a key role in helping students address the critical environmental challenge. Although there are many artworks that demonstrate ecological destruction that includes the overuse of fossil fuels, deforesting, and mining we are interested in visual essays from art educators who inspire hope and resilience to assure and restore the health of our planet. In short, IMAG #13 is inviting visual essays that respond to the following questions: How might art projects in schools, museums, community, and studios enhance perception, aesthetic encountering, and ecological interdependence that would contribute to a global effort on climate literacy? How might young artists use their literacy to engage in the global “action” needed? The quartet, the principal co-editors of IMAG, particularly encourage art educators of children ages 3-18 to submit visual essays. Submission Guidelines can be found on the InSEA website: (go to publications, IMAG, guidelines for authors). Deadline for submissions is Monday, January 17th (2022) and they can be sent to InSEAiMAG[at]gmail.com
