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, RTF, or WordPerfect 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, which is found in About the Journal.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.

Author Guidelines

Manuscripts are accepted for review beginning in September, at which time the forum topic for the current volume of the journal is decided. Manuscripts that conform with the chosen forum topic will be given preference. Manuscripts can be written in either English or French and can be submitted electronically. While there are no preliminary restrictions as to manuscript length, the editorial board reserves the right to set such restrictions as a condition of publication.

In order to be accepted for publication, selected articles must also proceed through a double-blind peer review process and receive positive evaluations. Please note that manuscripts submitted simultaneously to other journals will not be accepted.

Authors should consult the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, 9th ed (Scarborough: Carswell, 2018) and a current issue of the journal as a guideline for formatting requirements.

Submission deadlines vary. Generally, the journal does not accept submissions after January for publication in the summer. However, we will accept submissions throughout the year for consideration in the next available publication.
