Before submitting your paper to Glossolalia, please ensure that it follows these guidelines. Papers that do not meet the style guidelines as outlined below will not be reviewed, regardless of content.
Format & Style
Papers must follow Chicago Style guidelines, as described in The Chicago Manual of Style, or in Kate Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations. The following list is not exhaustive; it merely serves to highlight important issues or departures from Chicago Style.
Papers should be 15-25 pp. double-spaced, including footnotes. The bibliography may exceed the 25 page limit.
Do not include your name in the body of the submitted document. The editor in chief will note your authorship, but will not include your name in any communication with your reviewer(s). Please do not include your name in the title of the document file.
Font and Margins
Please use 12pt Garamond font for the body of your paper. Footnotes and block quotations should be in 10pt Garamond font. Use one-inch (1”) margins on all four sides.
Paper titles should appear on the first page of the manuscript in all capital letters in boldface. Please do not include a separate title page in your submission.
Submission titles should be in all capital letters, centered. Section headers should be boldface and centered and should use headline-style capitalization.
Block quotations should be single-spaced and the left margin should be set in one-half inch. The text of block quotes should be the same size and typeface as the rest of the body text.
Words in languages other than English should be italicized unless they form an extended quotation (i.e. a block quotation). Regarding languages written in non-Latin script, this rule should be used only when transliterating text into Roman characters. Do not place quotation marks around non-English terms unless quoting another work.
Do not include page numbers in your paper submission. Your paper will receive numbering based on its place in the final layout of the journal.
Please note the strict prescription of the use of the serial (Oxford) comma. Also, please place only one space after sentences.
Spacing & Paragraphs
Double space and indent paragraphs. Do not include extra spaces between paragraphs.
Please follow Chicago Style guidelines for footnotes (not endnotes) with a bibliography appended on a separate page.
To submit an essay for consideration in Glossolalia, please email your paper in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx) to the editor in chief, Alexander D’Alisera, at email@example.com. The document title should only include the paper’s title, not the author’s name, the journal’s name, or the issue for which it is under consideration.
Papers for submission are due by 11:59 PM on the date noted in the Call for Papers.
