Author Guidelines

• Authors should follow the Chicago Manual of Style.

• Manuscripts must be in English. If this is not the first language of the author, contributions should be checked for grammar and syntax, prior to submission, by a person fluent in academic English. It is not the responsibility of the editorial team to redraft articles into an acceptable form and manuscripts which do not meet the required standard will be returned. American conventions in spelling and punctuation should be used throughout.

• The author’s name should not appear on the cover page if one is included as manuscripts are evaluated anonymously.

• An abstract of no more than 150 words should be included at the beginning of the article.

• 3 or 4 "keywords" should be included at the beginning of the article following the abstract.

• The entire article, including block quotations, endnotes, and figure captions should be double-spaced with at least a one-inch margin on all sides. All pages should be numbered consecutively throughout. Manuscripts should not exceed 8,000 words including notes. 

• Authors are responsible for obtaining any copyright permissions.

• Tables and graphs should be sent as separate files, not as part of the main text, and clear indication given as to their appropriate position within the article.

• Illustrations are encouraged but not required. At submission stage an indication of suitable material is all that is necessary as precise details will be determined once an article has been accepted for publication.
