NOTE TO CONTRIBUTORS
QuÃ©bec Studies publishes articles dealing with all aspects of Quebec society and
French-Canadian culture. The editors of QuÃ©bec Studies welcome interpretive or
theoretical essays, book reviews, and interviews in all fields of the humanities and
social sciences. Interdisciplinary essays are particularly encouraged. Issues devoted
in part to a single topic or major cultural figure will appear regularly.
Articles may be in French or English. Submissions should be 15-20 pages in length,
including endnotes, typed double-spaced, and conform to the MLA StyLÂ· Manual
(1985). The WorLÂ· Cited or Ouvrages citÃ©s section should list all works consulted
by the author. Unnecessary endnotes are to be avoided. "Usually the author's last
name and a page reference are enough to identify the source and the specific
location from which you have borrowed material." (MLA Handbook 5.2)
Whether the essay is written in English or in French, standardized punctuation
requires that commas and periods be placed inside quotation marks. All normally
italicized words, including titles, should be underlined in the manuscript. Unwarranted genderized language should be avoided.
A separate title page should include the manuscript title and the author's name and
address. In order to ensure anonymity, the author's name should not appear on the
manuscript. Authors will need to provide a copy of the manuscript on a computer
diskette if it is accepted for publication. Please send three copies of the manuscript
and include a stamp self-addressed envelope. Authors are encouraged to use one
of the following software programs: XYWrite, Nota Bene, Mac Write, Microsoft
Word, or Word Perfectâ€”save in Option 3â€”generic WP. Contributors to QuÃ©bec
Studies will also be asked to provide a three or four line abstract of their essay.
Manuscript and editorial communications should be addressed to the editor, Karen
Gould, Department of Romance Languages, Bowling Green State University,
Bowling Green, Ohio 43403.
