Author Guidelines

Plaridel is a refereed biannual journal published by the University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication (UP CMC). Articles may focus on any aspect of communication and media. Review of a book, film, website, TV, or radio program may also be submitted.

All articles should have a high degree of scholarship. They will have to be approved by the assigned issue editor and by selected referees for publication.

All manuscripts should be written with proper citations using the APA style. Articles must have up to 5,000 words, while reviews must have up to 1,500 words. They should be submitted in either English or Filipino, typed double-space in 12-point Arial font.

In addition, articles should be accompanied by an abstract of 100 to 150 words. (Abstracts for contributions written in Filipino must be written in English and must have 200 to 250 words.)

The articles and reviews must also be supplied on disk. Accompanying pictures, artworks, graphics, and other similar materials must not be smaller than 5 x 7 inches in size and must have high resolution (at least 200dpi).
