Peer Review Process

Essay manuscripts should not exceed 7000 words (excluding endnotes and list of works cited), double-spaced in Times New Roman 12pt. font, with 1.5 line spacing and should conform to MLA style in regard to quotations, citations, endnotes, and lists of works cited. Manuscripts that do not comply with the Style Guide may be rejected by the editors. Authors are responsible for obtaining copyright permission for any illustrations or figures cited in their texts. Allow three months for consideration.

Manuscripts are refereed anonymously by two reviewers. Reviewers will assess the submission against the criteria of content (originality and thoroughness of research, and understanding of context), structure (well-structured argument and conclusion), and clarity of style.
