Typescripts should be double-spaced (except for endnotes (or footnotes), which may be single-spaced), and should include an abstract of 80-100 words and 5-8 keywords. References should be included in the notes rather than in-text. Bibliographic information should be included in the notes rather than in a separate bibliography. We prefer manuscripts of 8,000-12,000 words in length (including notes), although shorter or longer manuscripts may also be considered. (We do not publish very short papers that have the form of a "Note" or "Comment".) We can normally also consider unsolicited book review essays (6,000-8,000 words) and shorter book reviews (2,000-3,500 words) for publication.

Papers should be prepared for blind review and submitted electronically (preferably as Microsoft Word documents) to Author-identifying information, any deleted references or acknowledgments, and a statement that the paper has not been published previously in any form (including online on an unrestricted website) and is not currently under consideration elsewhere should be included in a separate note. An email address should be provided for acknowledgment of receipt.

All papers are peer reviewed. The review process is normally completed within 8-10 weeks, with accepted articles appearing 4-6 months after acceptance of the final version of the paper. Our acceptance rate is 15 percent.
