Author Guidelines

Research and policy articles submitted to Allons-y should be between 3000 and 5000 words including references. They should include a title, abstract, author names, emails, affiliations, ORCID iD (if applicable), short bios, and keywords on a title page. Policy articles should include a policy implications section of c.500 words. If required, a note at the end of the article should state any funding for the article, and any conflicts of interest.

References should be made in the Chicago Manual of Style 17th edition full note style, without a bibliography. URLs to sources should be provided wherever possible, and journal article references should contain the DOI if applicable.

Articles should be submitted in a Microsoft Word (.docx) file format, single spaced in a 12-point font, use italics (except in hyperlinks), and place figures and tables at their place in the text, rather than at the end. Any figures taken from other sources should be referenced, and evidence of their permission for use (such as a Creative Commons license) should be included.

Authors should use Canadian English spellings.
