AATF National Bulletin
Guidelines for Authors
You make contact the editor by fax: (513) 861-5572 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Manuscripts should be sent in hard copy and via e-mail
attachment, if possible, to facilitate distribution to readers.
When time permits a notice of reception of an article or item will be sent. This is not always possible, however.
Articles are reviewed by the editor on a periodic basis and then they are forwarded to a board of readers who send their recommendations back to the editor. Articles may be accepted as received or tentatively accepted pending revision, or may be refused. Time between the reception of an article and its actual publication will vary depending on space available in any given issue as well as on thematic content, as we often try to group articles according to theme.
FORMAT, LENGTH, STYLE, AND OTHER REQUIREMENTS
Please refer to the MLA stylesheet in preparing your submissions.
All contributions should be typewritten, double-spaced throughout, including endnotes, bibliography, quotations (except very long ones). Use 2" left margin and 1 1/2" margins on all other sides.
Articles should average 5-6 pages although an occasional outstanding longer piece will be accepted (10-12 pages). Shorter articles are always welcome.
Articles in French may follow standard French style. Please note that the NB uses diacritical marks on capital letters in accordance with the manual Basic Rules for Typesetting in French by Alain Baudoit and Thérèse Lior (1984).
The author's name should not appear anywhere on the
manuscript itself. Instead, authors should use a cover sheet that
indicates the title of the article, a one or two word short title that
will appear on every page of the submission, name of author, school
affiliation, home and work addresses and telephone numbers, including
zip and area codes.
Each page of the manuscript should bear at the top right the one or two key words of the short title, followed by the page number.
Please note that chatty, first-person style is not acceptable.
Charts, graphs, drawings, etc. should be avoided unless absolutely necessary to the text as they are difficult and expensive to reproduce. If they are used, they should be prepared as separate sheets from the main text of the manuscript and should be camera-ready. Their placement within the text should be indicated in the text.
