Author Guidelines

Please supply an abstract of 100 or fewer words with your paper. Preferred file format is Microsoft Word, saved as .doc (please do not send .docx). All articles and reviews will be double-spaced, including notes. All notes must be endnote formatted. Images may be submitted as either black and white photos or as digital files (.tiff or high quality .jpgs) at least 300 dpi. Since images take up space normally reserved for text, please keep any such materials to a minimum. All English-language submissions MUST follow the 7th Ed. MLA Stylebook and be print ready.

All authors of articles and notes will receive 1 bound copy of the issue their work appears in. An order form for reprints, giving the cost, is available online at https://caesar.sheridan.com/jhup/eoc.

It is our policy to require the assignment of copyright from all authors. All manuscripts should be original work. It is the author’s responsibility to obtain written permission for unpublished or published material quoted in excess of fair use, and for the reprinting of illustrations from unpublished or copyrighted material (for both print and electronic versions).
