Resonance: Editorial Guidelines

Published by the Self Regulation Institute (SRI), Resonance provides a platform for academics and community members to share their thought-provoking research and/or perspectives on self-regulation in order to contribute to the understanding of Self-Reg as contextualized in real life. The blog publishes theoretical, empirical, review, applied, and policy posts pertaining to self-regulation and Self-Reg, with the objective of making the literature accessible to all communities. Resonance invites applicable interdisciplinary submissions for consideration. Please refer to SRI’s Research Values and Research Directions for further information.

Submission Guidelines

Resonance is interested in original, insightful, and clearly articulated ideas that are brought to life in meaningful ways.

SRI will choose the accompanying feature image for the blog posts; however, you may include additional images (charts, photos, tables) as long as you hold the copyright and/or can provide proof that the image is royalty-free. Please provide the required sourcing information, if necessary, to facilitate accurate attribution.

Prior to submitting your blog post, please email with the following information:

  • Your name, title, and organization
  • Type of blog post (e.g. research, opinion piece)
  • Topic you would like to cover and a summary paragraph of your post
  • The key message(s)
  • A short 100-word bio and a photo of yourself.

Please note that the above are not applicable if SRI has invited you to write a blog post based on your expertise.

We request that you submit the draft of your blog post 30 days prior to the publication date in order to provide sufficient time for editorial review.

Style and Formatting

In addition to being insightful and informative, blog posts should use concise and clear language and be written based on the following considerations:

  • Word count of 650 to 750
  • Use bullets to highlight major points where possible

Content Review

SRI will review submissions prior to publishing the blog posts. If revisions are required, we will share the comments (e.g. structure, clarity) with you and conduct a second review prior to posting. Please note that we will not publish anything:

  • That has been published elsewhere.
  • That is disrespectful or discriminatory.
  • That is partisan in nature.
  • That is promotional in nature.


SRI supports published authors with respect to repurposing their blog posts on other platforms given the following terms:

There is a 60-day window between the publication of the blog post on SRI’s website and when it is published elsewhere.
Any future publications of the post cite SRI as the original source and provide a link to the original posting.
