Guidelines and Procedures for submitting Article Manuscripts

(printer friendly available)

InTensions welcomes inter-disciplinary manuscripts from scholars/artists. All article manuscripts will go through a double-blind peer-reviewed process. We do not accept simultaneous submissions or previously published materials.

Manuscript preparation
The following guidelines for authors apply:
  1. The manuscripts should not exceed 4500 words including notes and references
  2. Manuscripts should include an abstract of approximately 120 words
  3. In a separate document, a cover page should be submitted which includes: article title, full name of author(s), affiliation, mailing and email address, telephone & fax numbers.
  4. Documents should be submitted in Microsoft World only
  5. Images, which are highly encouraged, should be in jpeg or tiff format. These can be embedded in the main document or attached as separate documents with indications of where these would be placed within the article. The author will assume responsibility for the authorized use of any images included.
  6. The body of the paper must be for a standard 8.5”x11” page size, use a 12 pt font, and include 1” margins, page numbers.
  7. Endnotes rather than footnotes are requested.
  8. The article should be double-spaced. Captions, quotes, and references should be single spaced.
  9. The accuracy and completeness of the references is the responsibility of the author.
  10. Remove all references that might reveal the identity of the author.
  11. For all additional guidelines, the style used should comply with a recent edition (post-2003) of The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. New York: Modern Language Association of America.
