Note to Contributors
Quebec Studies publishes articles dealing with all aspects of Quebec society and FrenchCanadian culture. The editors of Quebec 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 English or French. Submissions should be 20 - 35 pages in length,
including endnotes, typed double-spaced. When submitting an essay, a separate page
should include the manuscript title and the author's name and address. In order to
assure annoymity during the review process, the author's name should not appear on
the manuscript. Please send three copies of the manuscript. Only manuscripts accomÂ
panied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope will be returned should we decline to
publish a submission. Authors will need to provide a copy of the manuscript on a 3.5
inch computer diskette if it is accepted for publication. Authors should use Microsoft
Word or Word Perfect. Contributors to Quebec Studies will also be asked to provide a
three or four line abstract of their essay, as well as a biographical note of similar length.
A list of Works Cited (Ouvrages citÃ©s) should follow the article and endnotes, listing all
works cited or explicitly referred to by the author. A Bibliography (Ouvrages consultÃ©s) of
additional works consulted by the author may also follow, but these must be related
directly to the article, and not of a general nature. Endnotes that merely identify the
source of a citation are to be avoided, since such identification is to be done parenthetiÂ
cally in the main body of the text. Whether the essay is written in English or French,
Quebec Studies requires that commas and periods be inside quotation marks. Articles
returned to contributors for revision will be accompanied by a Style Sheet. It is the
responsibility of the contributor to adhere scrupulously to the Style Sheet when preparÂ
ing a final version of the manuscript.
