Lumen: Editorial Policy for articles submitted in English
The Editorial Board invites contributions from all participants in the annual conference of the Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Lumen is an annual, bilingual, and interdisciplinary journal.
- Essays should not exceed twenty pages in length, including quotations and footnotes.
- Notes should be in the form of footnotes, at the bottom of the page.
- Essays should be double-spaced, including quotations and footnotes. All pages should be numbered consecutively (arabic numerals only in top right corner) with margins of 3 cm.
- Authors are asked to include an abstract (100 to 150 words) on a separate page with their submissions. The abstract should be provided in both English and French. Abstracts of accepted essays will be included in Lumen and on the CSECS/SCEDHS website.
- Authors of accepted essays will be asked to prepare a brief biographical description (maximum: two sentences) to be included in "Notes on Contributors."
- Relevant illustrations may be included, but it is the responsibility of the author to receive permission for reproduction and to provide camera-ready images once the essay has been accepted.
- Quotations longer than four lines of poetry or prose should be set off from the text by two double-spaces.
- Italics should be used instead of underlining; no bold characters should be used in the text.
- Authors' names and addresses should appear on a separate title page and not in the text, since CSECS has a policy of anonymous submission.
- Lumen only considers essays which are not under simultaneous consideration at another journal.
- For all other questions of academic style, essays submitted for publication in English should follow the guidelines set out in The Chicago Manual of Style (15th edition).
