Submission Guidelines & Procedure

No submissions can be considered at this time. A Call for Papers will be circulated once an adequate number and distribution of referees are in place.

Within the topics listed under Editorial Policy, papers on any subject will be considered that are in English, and that are composed in a style of exposition that maximizes clarity of thought and prose, rigor of argument, logical consistency, and conceptual and (where appropriate) exegetical analysis. Basic stylistic guidelines for graduate students and interested scholars from other expository traditions are available here. Each submission will be screened by a first referee, and, if accepted, screened by a second. Referee comments will be provided only on decisions to accept with revisions, or to reject with advice to revise and resubmit.

Papers should be previously unpublished, and should not be under review at any other journal. The title of the paper, the author’s name, the titles of conferences at which the paper was delivered, and the names of individuals acknowledged or thanked in the endnotes should be deleted. All citations and references to the author’s own previous work, whether in the endnotes or in the main text, should be replaced by Author’s Article 1, Author’s Article 2, Author’s Book 1, etc. The first page of the paper should consist in a 1.5-spaced abstract of 250 words maximum. The main text of the paper should not exceed 10,000 words. It should be formatted in Microsoft Word 2004, in Palatino 12-point font, double-spaced with 3 cm margins, including endnotes and bibliography. Diagrams, graphs and other visual material should be pre-inserted in the text as JPEG or PDF documents. Citations and bibliography should conform to those in the Chicago Manual of Style at

Once the Call for Papers has been circulated, interested authors will be able to upload papers by following the blind submissions procedure below. The Journal will aim to notify authors of a decision within four to eight months.
