House style

Manuscripts should be submitted as Word Documents with minimal unnecessary formatting (such as page or section breaks, hyperlinks, and so on). The entire document, including endnotes but excluding figures and tables, should be one-and-a-half- (preferred) or double-spaced. Text should be standard 12 point in Arial or Times New Roman font. Figures and tables should be submitted seperately in high-resolution formats such as .eps or .png.


Primary and secondary text headings should be left aligned. Primary headings should be boldface; secondary headings should be italicised.


Quotations must correspond exactly with the original in wording, spelling, and punctuation. Short quotations within the text must be noted by quotation marks; longer quotations or extracts should be indented from the left margin and require no quotation marks. Changes and additions to quotations must be identified by bracketing; ellipses (…) must be used to identify omissions; emphasis added must be indicated. Quotations must specify the page or location of the quote.

Figures and tables

Figures and tables must be placed in-line and as close as possible to the first reference made in the text. Tables should be formatted for legibility and comprehensibility.


All notes must be endnotes, not footnotes, with their location in the text clearly marked by superscript numbers. Endnote text should appear at the end of the article before the list of references.

Within-text citations

Citations should be as specific as possible, citing particular chapters, sections, page numbers, or locations whenever possible, including electronic sources. All citations should be specified in the text in the following manner:

  • If the author is named in the text, cite by year of publication: Jean-Joseph Goux (1999) has suggested…
  • If the author is not named in the text, cite by last name and year of publication:
    • It has been noted (Holmes, 2007) that…
  • If necessary, pagination should follow the year of publication, separated by a colon:
    • It was argued (Goux, 1999: 116) that by…
  • Dual authors should be joined by "and"; multiple authors should be listed in full on first citation and indicated by et al. thereafter:
    • Other approaches (Bryan and Rafferty, 2006: 30–97) concede… Some have argued (de Cock, Baker, and Volkmann, 2011)… But they assume (de Cock et al., 2011: 158–9) that…
  • If an author has multiple references for any single publication year, indicate specific works by use of lower case letters:
    • On the one hand (Lacan, 1974a: 45; Derrida, 1977b: 22) it is…
  • Series of references should be enclosed within parentheses, ordered alphabetically by author, and separated by semicolons:
    • Proponents of the position (Bryan and Rafferty, 2006; de Cock et al., 2011; Green and Hay, 2015)…
  • Citations from electronic sources: Citations for information found on the World Wide Web, an e-mail message, a listserv message, or other electronic forms should follow the common in-text pattern of author, year and, if available, the page number. If the electronic source does not have page numbers, authors should use internal divisions such as section numbers, locations, or chapter headings to assist the reader in finding the original information
    • (Taxi to Caracas, 2000: Paragraph 3)
  • Repeat citation each time it is necessary. Avoid "ibid.", "op. cit.", or "supra.". Be sure that every cited work is included in the reference section and that the spellings of the authors' names and dates of publications are accurate in both citations and references.


A list of references must be included and should begin on a new page following the text. Works should be listed alphabetically by author, or by institution or title of any material not attributed to a specific author or authors. References should conform to the formats illustrated below:
