For authors:

Authors should follow either The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th Edition, or, for legal submissions, The Bluebook.

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; manuscripts that do not meet the required standard will be returned. 

The author’s name should appear on the cover page only as manuscripts are evaluated anonymously.

An abstract of no more than 500 words should be included at the beginning of the article.

Three or four “keywords” should be included at the beginning of the article following the abstract. The article should be double-spaced with at least a one-inch margin on all sides. All pages should be numbered consecutively throughout.

Authors are responsible for obtaining any copyright permissions.

Accepted articles should demonstrate international quality of scholarship, rigor, and analysis. It would also be an advantage in terms of likely publication if the piece addresses a significant issue, even if only by contextualization, and is likely to be widely cited. All articles generally go to two referees, at least one (and preferably two) of whom are members of the Editorial Board. The comments of the reviewers are then edited, and a collective review is sent to the author.

“The code is more what you’d call ‘guidelines’ than actual rules.”—Barbossa
