Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice or Microsoft Word document file format.
  • The text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point font (11-point font for footnotes); all text, notes, and bibliography should be unjustified and should not use hyphenation.
  • Only Unicode fonts are employed, unless specific characters used in the article are not covered by Unicode and/or freely licensed Unicode fonts are not yet available.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

Submissions should normally be written in British English. If you propose to use another language, please consult the Editors.

Works written in a language other than the author’s native language must be proof-read and corrected by a native speaker prior to submission.

Authors are welcome to include their ORCID iD number. 

We recommend that articles submitted to the journal be 8000 words without bibliography. 

An abstract and up to 6 keywords should follow the title of the submission. Please include headings ‘abstract’ and ‘keywords.’ It should not be possible to learn the identity of the author from the submitted text or its ‘Properties’ as a file.

Articles will be considered for publication by the Editors, in consultation with the Editorial Board and/or external referees.

After acceptance, the author will be asked to revise the article in line with the referees’ suggestions. Articles that seriously fail to follow the stylesheet will be returned for correction. The article should be proof-read by the author before the final submission.

For detailed formatting instructions, please consult the current version of our style sheet.

Users of Zotero are advised to use the Manuscript and Text Cultures CSL style.
