Preparation and Submission of Papers

This guide is to help you prepare your paper. Following the instructions will help us to maintain consistency and reduce the volume of correspondence.

Please submit your paper via email to All notes, citations, bibliography etc., must be complete and in the appropriate format. Incomplete notes and citations will delay editorial decisions.

Use the Chicago Manual of Style, latest edition (referred to hereafter as CMS) and Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, the latest edition for matters of style, capitalization, spelling, and hyphenation.

The CMS manual can be found at Some key points are also highlighted in our Style Quick Guide.

Please name your files so that the contents can be determined easily (i.e. Spencer 2020 Conference Paper). If tables, etc., are in separate files, please merge them into the paper. You must have permission from the original photographer/artist/publisher to use any photographs/images in your paper. If you do not have permission to use these images, it will slow down the publication process.
