  • Authors should submit articles by email at any convenient time in MS Word to Joe Green, editor,
  • We prefer articles of no more than 4,000 words,but we will do our best to accommodate exceptions to this guideline.
  • End notes should be numbered consecutively. (No footnotes, please.) You may format citations in any appropriate academic style (MLA or Chicago preferred).
  • Photographs, maps, illustrations, or other images should be sent as separate attachments and not embedded in the article. They should be sent as jpg or pdf in the highest resolution possible and numbered in the text (e.g., Fig. 1). A separate attachment, with the relevant Fig. No., should contain a short title or description of the image.
  • We prefer articles that have not been previously published.
  • The editor, a technical editor, and at least one other reader will evaluate each submission. Once we complete a review, we will notify the author of the article’s status. If we agree to publish, we will communicate with the author about any revisions and about the approximate date of publication.
