format: Spelling, capitalization, and punctuation should be consistent
within each essay and should follow the style recommended in the latest
edition of The Chicago Manual of Style (The University of Chicago Press,
latest ed. 1993).
submissions must include an indexable title, followed by the authors' names
in the form preferred for publication, full institutional addresses, and
electronic mail addresses. In addition to your contact information, you
should include a short bio (3-4 lines in length). The bio should include your
affiliation, your research interests, and any major publications.
Illustrations: Tables and figures (i.e., photographs, graphs, charts, or other artwork) should be included only if necessary to the submission and never for merely ornamental purposes. They should be numbered consecutively and included as pasted bitmap images, rather than as vector graphs. Every table should have a title; every figure, a caption. At least one reference in the text must indicate the appropriate locations.
The author(s) are responsible for the accuracy and thoroughness of
citations. References cited must follow the guidelines of the author-date
system. The author's last name and the year of publication (with no
punctuation between them) are enclosed in parentheses and directly follow
specific pages or sections of a work, that specification follows the year of
publication, preceded by a comma.
(Kimura and Hampson 1994, 58)
For works with
more than two authors, et al. should be used, and lowercase letters
differentiate separate works by the same author written in the same year.

Avoid extracts, tables, and paragraphing in notes. Footnotes will be
converted to endnotes in the typeset version.
Quotations of more than two lines should be set off in a separate paragraph
with double indentation. Quotations of less than two lines may remain in the
main body of the text, placed within double quotation marks. All extract
