Author Guidelines

Submission of a manuscript to The Pluralist is understood to imply that the paper is original, it has not already been published in whole or in substantial part elsewhere, and is not currently under consideration by any other journal. Article lengths of 6,000 to 12,000 words are preferred, although longer papers will be considered. Discussion pieces, essay-length reviews, and book reviews may also be submitted. Before submitting a review, please contact Roger Ward, Editor. 

A submission must omit self-identifying information to allow for double-blind review. An abstract of 100 words should be placed at the start of the paper. Citations should follow the MLA Style Manual and Guide, 8th edition. No autoformatting of notes should be used; all notes will be endnotes listed in numerical order at the end as part of the regular text. All text, including notes and extracted material (quotations, formulae), must be in 12-pt font and double-spaced. All pages must be numbered and have margins of at least one inch on all sides.
