Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission file is a Microsoft Word file named LastnameFirstinitial.doc (or .docx).
- The text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point font; and uses italics for emphasis, rather than underlining. All illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end. The text uses the Chicago Manual of Style Author-Date system for bibliographic citation.
Faculty sponsor form. Each submission requires the sponsorship of a university/college faculty member. The JUE is committed to the mentoring of undergraduates at all stages of research.
Faculty sponsors should email a brief letter of support either directly or as an attachment with the student’s submission. The sponsoring letter should indicate that the sponsor has read and critiqued the manuscript on its content, method, grammar, and overall presentation. Information on the original purpose of the paper (course assignment, conference, etc.) is appreciated.
In addition, assert that the research adhered to institutional, departmental, or disciplinary ethical standards. Finally, confirm that the planning, execution, and writing of the manuscript represents primarily the work of the undergraduate author(s).
I, [FACULTY SPONSOR'S NAME] certify that I have observed The Journal for Undergraduate Ethnography‘s submission guidelines and hereby recognize [STUDENT'S NAME] work as original. I am the voluntary and willing sponsor of this work.
