Submission Preparation Checklist

As 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 has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.

Author Guidelines

Contributions, in English or French, should be sent to the Secretary of Dionysius, Dr. Eli Diamond, by e-mail or regular post. Submission of an article is taken to imply that it has not been previously published, nor is being considered for publication elsewhere.

Accepted articles must be submitted both in hard copy and electronically, preferably in Microsoft Word format.  Manuscripts should be double-spaced on standard-sized (US letter or A4) paper, with a wide left-hand margin. The typescript should be prepared to accord with the University of Chicago Style Manual, with footnotes numbered consecutively. Authors may either place a full citation in the first footnote (see Harrington's article in Dionysius 23) or use a bibliography organized alphabetically by the authors' last names with publications in alphabetical order and citations by author and short title within footnotes (see Hankey's article in Dionysius 23).  The SymbolGreek family of fonts should be used to enter Greek text.  Articles employing Greek must include a hard copy with correct Greek at the time of submission.

Manuscripts will not be returned.  All contributors of articles will receive two copies of the issue and 25 off-prints.
