  1. Once your article has been accepted for publication and entered into our production schedule, you will be notified of the date by which your manuscript must reach our office. Pleaseobsever these guidelines. If you are unlikely to meet the deadline, please telephone the Managing Editor immediately to discuss alternative arrangements.
  2. A smooth and timely publication process for each issue depends on all the following criteria. To this end, please send:
    1. An electronic copy of the entire manuscript, including:
      1. The article itself, with notes placed at the end of the text (not at the bottom of the page); all tables, figures and accompanying illustrations are to be placed after the notes.
      2. An abstract of the article in English and French.
      3. A biographical note on the author, in English and French, for the Contributors’ page.
    2. A complete list of all attachments with each e-mail submission.
  3. Indicate any special requirements regarding the final size of figures and illustrations, keeping in mind that these must be no larger than 15.5 cm x 15.5 cm. They need to be, however, at least 300 dpi. In the captions for figures and illustrations, include acknowledgements and permissions to reprint.
  4. Unless the technical quality of figures and tables allows direct reproduction, the Journal prefers to redraft and will send proofs of the new version for your approval.
  5. Illustrations are preferably in TIF, JPG, PDF or EPS. Please contact us for our FTP address.
  6. Where necessary, translation costs of abstracts and biographical notes will be assumed by the author. Translations must be submitted at the same time as the original manuscript.
  7. Clearly indicate any items you wish to be returned (photos, disks, maps, tables, etc.).
  8. Authors will receive three copies of the issue in which their article appears, mailed at the same time as subscribers’ copies.
  9. Endnotes: please follow a consistent format of the Chicago Manual of Style within the manuscript. Examples:
