Author Guidelines

NOTE: Philo is no longer accepting submissions.

MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION:  Submissions should be prepared for blind review. The author’s name should not appear on the manuscript, and self-identifying citations should be avoided. The manuscript should be double-spaced, include page numbers on every page except the first, and have ample margins.

ABSTRACTS: Except for book reviews, all submissions must be accompanied by an abstract of about 100 words.

REFERENCES: Philo’s reference format can be found in any issue of Philo.  Use documentary-note style as described in The Chicago Manual of Style. Use endnotes instead of footnotes. Discursive notes should be brief and few. Submitted articles not conforming to this format must be rewritten if they are accepted for publication.

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.

  2. The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. 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.
  5. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  6. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
