Those corrections must be made directly on the PDF proof sent by the publisher as well as be listed separately on a WORD document.

Essays should normally be between 5000 and 10000 words in length and written according to the specifications of The Chicago Manual of Style ( 


All and complete references are to be given in footnotes (no bibliography) and, when appropriate, illustrations should  have their source acknowledged.

Book chapters and journal papers should appear between quotation marks.
