Papers submitted for publication in The Acorn should be submitted both in hard copy and on disk or via e-mail, preferably in Microsoft Word format. Submissions may be up to 8,000 words in length (approximately 32 typed pages, double spaced). Shorter papers or essays are welcome. Papers should follow M.L.A. style. Papers about which there is some question regarding either quality or appropriateness are presented for blind review to members of our editorial board. Approximately half of all submissions are published.
The Acorn accepts no responsibility for unsolicited manuscripts. Unless accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope, no manuscript will be returned. The journal welcomes letters to the editor, and reserves the right to edit or shorten all submissions.
