Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The article topic is related to the theme of an active Call for Papers (see the Announcements page).
- The entire submission is in one Word document, which is organised as follows: Article title, Author name, Abstract, Keywords, Article text, Author bio. Images (and, if absolutely necessary, tables) are submitted as separate files.
- The submission (including footnotes, abstract, and author bio) is around 5,000-7,000 words for a thematic article, 1,200 - 1,500 words for a short article or debate, and around 2,000 words for a book review.
- Authors guarantee that the same article, or an article with substantially the same content, has not been submitted concurrently to a different journal. Authors also certify that submissions are original work.
- Authors have cited appropriate sources for facts and ideas which appear in their article and have influenced their research.
- Authors have obtained permission to include any copyrighted material including images or tables in their work.
- Authors have included any conflicts of interest in their biographies or in a statement in the published paper. Conflict of interest includes any financial interests or connections, direct or indirect, or other situations that might raise the question of bias in the work reported or the conclusions, implications, or opinions stated - including pertinent commercial or other sources of funding for the individual author(s) or for the associated department(s) or organisation(s), or personal relationships.
Full-length articles are typically based on empirical research, literature review, or conceptual framing. Common sections include introduction, methodology, findings and conclusion. Articles are expected to make appropriate (though not excessive) references to existing literature on the subject. The recommended length of articles is 5,000 - 7,000 words.
Debate pieces defend or reject a pre-determined proposition formulated by the Editors at the time of publication of the Call for Papers. Debates do not require methodology or literature overview, and referencing should be kept to a minimum. The recommended length of debates is 1,200 - 1,500 words.
Book reviews, and book review essays, are 2000-2500 words long, do not need to contain an abstract, and are not peer reviewed.
Short articles are typically based on the experiences of service providers and/or advocates, rather than on empirical research or literature review. They need not have methodology or be grounded in existing literature. Referencing should be kept to a minimum. The recommended length of short articles is 1,200 - 1,500 words.

You may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a setting of the Internet browser, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
Collection of general data and information
The Anti-Trafficking Review website collects a series of general data and information when a person visits the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, GAATW does not draw any conclusions about the visitors. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimise the content of our website, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, GAATW analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our organisation, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
For visitors who choose to register with the journal we will also collect your name and email address and, if you decide to provide this information, also other account registration and profile information, including educational, professional and other background information, such as your field of study, current position, practice area and areas of interests and ORCID ID.
Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
On this website, we have integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymiser function). Google Analytics collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a visitor has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimisation of a website.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics our website uses the application "_gat. _anonymizeIp". By means of this application your IP address is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our website from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system you use. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, the Internet browser will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website. With each visit to our website, such personal data, including your IP address, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
You can, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time from your web browser and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on your system. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
How long do we keep your data
We will only retain the data you provide to us through our website for as long as required by applicable laws or as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected and in accordance with any consents provided. We will delete personal data at the end of this period unless we wish to use it for statistical purposes, in which case we will anonymise it, such that you could never be re-identified with it. You may request a copy of the data we hold about you or request that we delete your data by sending an email to the address specified above.
