Authors should follow these guidelines. Manuscripts should be sent as attachments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org in Microsoft Word 6.0 (or later version) format. An abstract of not more than 150 words should accompany each submission along with full contact information, including name, title, institution, and email and mailing addresses. All articles will be subject to blind review and editorial modification.
1. Submissions should be between 2400-8000 words (which equals about 6-20 journal pages).
2. For citations, use parenthetical MLA documentation style (see MLA Handbook, Sixth Edition, §5.2). Use a References section to cite full bibliographic information. Do not use notes for citations.
3. If notes are needed, use Endnotes rather than Footnotes, after the main text and before the References section.
4. Papers should be sent as Microsoft Word attachments via e-mail to Michael Pritchard (he can also be reached at Michael.Pritchard@wmich.edu). Include full contact information, including name, academic title, institution, phone number, e-mail (preferably both a primary and secondary if possible), and mailing address.
5. All articles are subject to editorial modification according to the following statement published at the beginning of each issue:
The following editorial adjustments may have been made to original manuscripts:
a. Some paragraph breaks have been adjusted.
b. Typographical errors have been corrected.
c. Mechanical and stylistic consistency have been imposed to the extent possible without altering the author’s intent.
6. If an earlier version of your paper was presented in public, please provide details in the first endnote, e.g., “An earlier version of this paper was presented at the Seventh Annual Conference of the Society for Ethics Across the Curriculum, Ringling School of Art and Design, Sarasota, Florida, November 19, 2006.”
7. Also in the first endnote, credit anonymous reviewer(s) if you feel your paper benefited from those comments (if only to acknowledge that the paper has gone through a blind review process and that the published version of the paper benefited from that process).
8. Break you paper into sections with non-numbered headings (except for the first introductory section), unless there is some other overriding reason not to do so.
