The CJFL had issued a call for submissions for issue 30:1, to be published in the fall of 2015 now that 29:2 is off to the presses. According to the CJFL's submissions guidelines, this is what you have to do:
- Manuscripts should be typewritten, double spaced, written in either English or French and be sent in Word format. Articles should not exceed forty typewritten pages, about 8,000 to 10,000 words.
- Include a cover page with the title of the article, the author's name, a brief statement of the author's qualifications, any acknowledgements or credits and a one paragraph summary or mc abstract of the article.
- Unless the Editorial Board specifically permits otherwise, only original, previously unpublished manuscripts will be accepted.
In terms of style, the Journal says this:
- Quotations should be distinguished from the text by single spacing.
- Manuscripts should include footnotes rather than endnotes.
- Manuscripts should follow the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation.
- If the article is a long one or contains complex material, the use of subheadings to break up the text is encouraged.
