Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

*At the present time the online submission process is not in use. Please consult the information below to see the guidelines for submitting to Florilegium Author Guidelines can be downloaded or viewed by clicking here(PDF).
  • Use 12pt Times New Roman font. All four margins must be 1” (2.5 cm) wide. Do not justify the right margin.
  • Please use Canadian spelling and punctuation.
  • Use one tab to mark the beginning of a paragraph. To indicate an indented section or block quotation, use the commands equivalent to “begin indent” and “end indent”; do not indent a block quotation by inserting a tab at the beginning of each line.
  • Double-space the entire text. Do not insert an extra line between paragraphs, except to indicate the beginning of a new section. Use the hard return (“enter” key) only to separate headings, paragraphs, sections, or lines of poetry in a block quotation.
  • Do not hyphenate end-of-line words. (Deactivate the “automatic hyphenation” function.)
  • Insert only one space after periods, colons, and all other punctuation marks. Insert spaces between the initials of a name.
  • Use double quotation marks for quotations in the running text. Use single quotation marks to indicate quotations within quotations. Except for semicolons and colons, all punctuation is placed inside the closing quotation marks.
  • Use square brackets to indicate modifications within quotations. When omitting part(s) of a passage in quotation, replace the omitted words with spaced ellipsis dots placed in square brackets. If a quotation begins with a capital letter in the source, please retain capitalization even if the quotation is inserted in mid-sentence in your own text.
  • Do not interchange the numeral “0” with the letter “O,” or the numeral “1” with the lower-case letter “l” or capital letter “I.”
  • Follow The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, for documentation format (abbreviated bibliographical data in the notes, followed by full data in a final Bibliography).
  • Please avoid speaking in the plural, as in “As we have seen . . .,” “As our investigation shows . . .,” or “We shall now turn to . . . .” Readers are not always pleased to be told what to think.
  • PLEASE DOUBLE-CHECK ALL BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ENTRIES AND ALL REFERENCES AND QUOTATIONS AGAINST THE ORIGINAL. This is particularly important for quotations of, and references to, sources which are hard to locate.
