Author Guidelines

  1. Texts should be no more than 8,000 words, be typed and double spaced, and submitted as a Word document. Authors should also submit an abstract (c. 250 words) and a brief biography (150 words max.).
  2. Texts should use American English spelling and punctuation conventions: e.g., ‘labor’ rather than ‘labour’ and ‘criticize’ rather than ‘criticise,’ double quotation marks, and quotation marks after punctuation (except colons and semi-colons).
  3. Citations should follow the Chicago Manual of Style with footnotes. Notes should be placed at the end and triple spaced.
  4. The author may use a separate Acknowledgments section to thank individuals and institutions for assistance. Such acknowledgments should be brief.
  5. The name of the author should appear only on a separate title page preceding the text, along with an abstract (c. 250 words) and a brief biography (150 words max.). Please take care not to self-identify in the text or notes.
  6. Each table should be identified by both a number and a descriptive title. Each must have its sources indicated, and the author should clearly indicate where each table should be placed in the text.
  7. Figures (illustrations) are numbered separately from tables, and they also must be identified by descriptive captions (including a date). The source for each figure should be given, and the author should clearly indicate where each figure should be placed in the text and referenced using figure numbers in parentheses, i.e. (fig.1).
  8. For any human subject research that requires Institutional Review Board approval, the author/s should provide evidence that said approval has been secured.
  9. If the article is accepted for publication, the author is responsible for obtaining permission to reprint the images or making sure that no permission is necessary (i.e. the image is in the public domain or carries a Creative Commons license).
