General Guidelines for Authors

(a)    Research-based articles or multimedia projects already completed may be submitted in their entirety, to be accompanied by an abstract of 250-300 words that describes your primary argument(s), method(s), and findings.  For articles, the suggested word count is 2,000 to 4,000, not including references and bibliography; longer pieces will, however, be considered.  Audio or video work should be no longer than 15 minutes run-time.

(b)   Research in progress may be submitted as an abstract of 250-300 words that describe your anticipated research focus, method(s), and argument(s).

(c)    Commentaries or reflections by previous EUI-affiliated students or faculty should provide (i) for students, the course and semester in which you did your EUI research, (ii) for faculty, your affiliated course and semester, and (iii) for both, a brief paragraph (250-500 words) outlining your experience.

(d)   We will accept co-authored work (with faculty or graduate students) in which the undergraduate student is the lead author, as well as multi-authored undergraduate work.  Student abstracts, articles, and multimedia projects must be accompanied by contract information for the faculty mentor or program administrator (such as McNair Scholars, James Scholars, etc.) who is willing to write in support of your submission.

(e)    All submissions should provide complete formatted references, text citations, and notes according to The Chicago Manual of Style, sixteenth edition.

All submissions must meet the following requirements.

  • 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.
