We accept submission on a rolling basis throughout the year.

 

Our publication date is September. Please note that the peer review process takes about four weeks. We recommend submitting early before the publication date for a shorter turnaround time with reviewers and faster publication.

 

Depending on the volume of submissions we receive, we may not consider your submission for the upcoming issue. Since we process submissions in the order of receipt, we may push back your submission to be considered for the next issue depending on how many submissions we receive before yours.

Typography

 Articles in English should use Canadian English spelling and typographical conventions. There should be no spaces before commas, stops, suspension marks, colons, semi-colons, question and exclamation marks and no spaces before or after quotation marks. Use exclusively English quotation marks (“...”). For quotations incorporated into another quotation, use single quotation marks (‘...’). Commas and periods that directly follow quotations must be placed inside the closing quotation marks. All other punctuation marks that do not belong to the quoted text are placed outside. 

Quotations

 Quotations not exceeding 2 lines will be placed within the text, within quotation marks. Longer quotations will be set off with an indentation, without quotation marks. An ellipsis in a quotation must be indicated with [...]. Quotations in languages other than the written language of the article should be translated within the text. The original quotation should be placed in footnotes.

Footnotes

Footnotes should include only necessary supplementary material. Do not use footnotes to give bibliographical references. Keep references in the text. Footnotes must be placed at the bottom of the page. Footnote numbers should be in Arabic numerals exclusively and be continuous throughout the document. In the text, footnotes must be placed before any punctuation sign. In the footnote itself, the automatically generated number is followed by a space and then the footnote itself.
