Manuscript Submission Instructions
Submissions should be sent electronically as an attachment file to the editors or to a member of the editorial board. Alternatively, manuscripts can be sent to a special E-mail address .
Manuscripts for consideration should be created with Microsoft Word 95 or higher with 1" margins throughout the manuscript.
The first page of the manuscript should contain the title of the article, the author's name, affiliation, and complete contact information, as well as a short biographical note of 15-50 words. No identifying marks should appear on the subsequent pages since submissions are sent to outside reviewers in anonymous form.
All pages of the manuscript should be numbered. The text of the article should be created using 12 font size with the title in 14 font size. Capitalize the main words (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs) and the first and last words in English-language titles. Both the manuscript title and the section headings should appear in bold. Paragraphs should not be tabulated. Paragraphs should be separated from one another with one space throughout the paper. The text should not be justified on the right margin.
The Library of Congress transliteration system should be followed.
The text of the manuscript must contain references to all of the sources cited in the paper. Citations in the text should be highlighted in color. Both works cited and notes should be placed at the end of the paper and not at the bottom of the page. All notes and references for all parts of the manuscript should be placed in one sequence and consecutively numbered. Authors are respectfully asked to ensure accuracy of the citations as well as agreement between citations in the text and information in the endnotes.
The two following instances require that a manuscript be submitted in two copies:
- Texts written in the languages using diacritical marks (e.g., Serbian, French, Polish, etc., with the exception of Ukrainian): the first copy should be formatted in accordance with submission guidelines described above; in the second copy, diacritical marks should be highlighted in color. If English, Russian and Ukrainian texts include words containing diacriticals (e.g., French, Serbian, Polish words), the words with diacriticals should also be highlighted in color in the second copy of the manuscript;
- Texts containing phrases and words appearing in bold or italic: phrases and words emphasized in bold or italic should be highlighted in color in the second copy of the manuscript.
Please note: by “highlighting“ we do not mean changing the font color; please highlight the words by changing the background color of the word with diacriticals (use “fill color/highlight“ options on the formatting toolbar (View-Toolbars-Formatting) in your word processor).
All images (illustrations and photographs) and tables should be sent as separate attached files; approximate desirable placement of images and tables should be indicated in the text. It is preferred that illustrations and photographs included in the manuscript be sent in .JPG format. However, other formats are also acceptable. All images must be accompanied with information about their author/ creator; date of creation; and/or source of the image. Images not created in digital format but suitable for scanning should be sent to the editors separately via regular mail to the following address:
Professor Zahar Davydov & Professor Kenneth Lantz
Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures
University of Toronto
121 St. Joseph Street,
Alumni Hall (AH)
All illustrations and photographs sent via regular mail should be clearly marked with the author's name and the manuscript title on the back and contain all accompanying information required for digital images, as per outline above.
Large files (over 500KB) should be sent as compressed files in WinZip or WinRAR formats. Files in other formats will not be accepted; regrettably, we cannot process files created with Apple/Macintosh or Linux systems.
