Submission Guidelines

With hundreds of article submissions annually, we kindly ask that you adhere to the JAR Style Guide and the following document set-up guidelines:

  • 12pt Times Roman
  • Double spaced
  • Left alignment
  • Everything including titles, subheads, etc. should be left aligned (no centering)Only use Microsoft Word’s automatic endnotes function for including notes
  • Do not indent the first line of paragraphs
  • No automatic formatting or any Word style sheets used except Normal
  • No headers, footers or page numbers
  • No superscript except for the note numbers
  • Long extracts and quotes should be in plain face, not italic, and indented
  • No boldface used unless an extract or quote uses boldface (if you want to add any emphasis, use italic, and if it is added to an extract or block quote by the author, indicate in the note that the emphasis was added)
  • Words inserted by the author into quotations must be in square brackets, not parentheses
  • Do not put extra returns between paragraphs even when there is a header (which should not be underlined or boldfaced); it is OK to put a single return above and below an extract or block quote
  • No page or section breaks added or indicated
  • No underlining, unless it is part of an extract or quote
  • No color used: all type should be black throughout
  • Please see the JAR Style Guide for all important style guidelines
