Guidelines for Contributors

Please send the manuscript as an attachment to Anita W. Harris, Managing Editor, at anita@substance.org, considering the following guidelines:

  • Use MLA (Modern Languages Association) documentation style (8th edition handbook). For quick reference, Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab is a good resource: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/675/01/
  • Article length is usually between 7,000 - 8,000 words. Please edit longer articles so the argument comes forward succinctly.
  • Include a short abstract on the first page of the document (100 words max.)
  • Submit articles in MS Word or compatible format.
  • Note that our review process can take up to six months.

Book reviews and requests should be submitted to our Book Reviews Editor, Rosemarie Scullion, at rosemarie-scullion@uiowa.edu
