Note to Prospective Contributors

Prospective contributors should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition (except for dates, which are in the traditional style in the Journal). Initial submissions should be made by email.

Contributors’ Guidelines: Editorial and Electronic

  • Preferred manuscript length is 25–30 pages (double-spaced), exclusive of footnotes.

  • Illustrations—photographs, drawings, maps, tables—that enhance the essay should be included (or photocopies of same).

  • The Chicago Manual of Style (15th edition) should be followed, with some exceptions (primarily dates: Journal prefers “December 1, 1866,” to Chicago’s “1 December 1866”).
