The Federation Quarterly Journal, The Lambert, seeks for authors of both nonfiction and fiction; authors of articles related to crucial social, economic, scientific, technological, cultural and political matters. We request for writers who are able to combine highly substantive content, giving insight and solidity whilst providing evidence regarding essential writing skills. Our writers have so far provided readers with short stories reportages, essays, analysis and interviews. However, we’re always open for new initiatives and ideas that could potentially feature in The Lambert.
Upcoming issue VIRTUAL REALITIES:
We live in a digital age. Given the times of a global pandemic that left us stranded at home, virtuality has become more omnipresent. During a crisis where physical contact is strictly avoided and puts many lives in danger, the only access through which we could socially interact, communicate and continue with the nature of seeing people is through a virtual screen.
We want to devote the eighth issue to all topics revolving around 'Virtual Realities.' This issue will present you with topics that allow you to delve beyond the screen and grasp insight into deeper understandings of what shapes and influences our lives today.

Standards of Credibility
As one of our major values is credibility, we pay particular attention to the verification of facts and statements presented in the published work.
The reliability requirements are not derived from questioning our contributors’ knowledge. Although we truly believe they have worked hard on their texts, our actions concerning substantive consultations and fact-check are undertaken because of our care of the Journal’s quality. In that sense, it is also additional support for the authors.
