Author Guidelines

References are required. The preferred style for citing references is the Note (N) format found in the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed. Use endnotes as opposed to footnotes.

You may opt to use another style better suited to your discipline (American Chemical Society, American Institute of Physics, etc.) provided that references are numbered and appear and the end of the paper.

Use superscript numbers in the body of your paper to note references – like this1. Do not use parenthetical notation like this: (Doniger 1999, 23).
