Notes 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 sciÂ
ences. Interdisciplinary essays are particularly encouraged. Issues devoted in whole
or 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 manuÂ
script. Only manuscripts accompanied 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. ContribuÂ
tors 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, listÂ
ing 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 identificaÂ
tion is to be done parenthetically 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 preparing a final version of the manuscript.

Massachusetts, Amherst MA 01003.
Advertising, requests for back issues, and subscription requests should be adÂ
dressed to the Managing editor, Jane Moss, French Department, Colby College,
