Author Instructions

Submissions not in compliance with the guidelines outlined below (and in the style sheet) will not be considered.

All typescripts should be typed in Times New Roman 12-point double-spaced (footnotes single spaced). Articles should be between 20 and 25 pages in length (including footnotes). An abstract (ca. 150-200 words) that succinctly summarizes the central claim of the article should be included on the first page of the typescript. The author’s name and affiliation, and the article’s title, should be provided on a separate sheet. The text itself should contain no indication of the author's identity.

Submissions in English should follow MLA guidelines for in-text parenthetical references with a “Works Cited” list at the end of the article (see Joseph Gibaldi, The MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing, Third Edition [New York: Modern Language Association of America, 2008]). Footnotes should be reserved for short explanations and kept to a minimum. For grammar, punctuation and capitalization norms, please refer to The Chicago Manual of Style, Third Edition (Chicago: Chicago UP, 2010).

Submissions in French should conform to the norms prescribed in the Lexique des règles typographiques en usage à l'Imprimerie nationale, 3e édition (Paris : Imprimerie nationale, 2002).
