Feature Articles submitted for publication to Dancecult are to be subjected to double-blind peer review by two international researchers. Although an attempt is made to complete the peer-review process within six weeks, in some cases it may take longer.
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
Dancecult is a member of the Radical Open Access Collective.
Before submitting, all authors must download and read the Dancecult Style Guide (aka "the DSG").

Dancecult's Transpositions section publishes English-language translations of already-published, foreign-language EDMC scholarship. Articles are selected by the Foreign Language Editor in consultation with the Executive Editor. Authors may nominate their own already-published work for Transpositions by contacting the FLE.
For authors wishing to translate their manuscripts into English, the Foreign Languages Editor (FLE) can provide help in finding a capable professional translator. The cost of translation remains with the author.
Once an article has been accepted for publication, the FLE is available to provide limited editing and proofreading support. Non-Anglophone authors may seek assistance from the FLE during the editing process.
