Editorial Procedures

  1. One space is reserved in the journal for each department or major program. Additional spaces will be available for interdisciplinary programs, for departments outside the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs, or for especially deserving departmental runners-up. The representative from each department or major program is responsible for submitting the outstanding paper from that discipline, and for nominating other worthy papers for consideration for the additional spaces. The editors are responsible for selecting these additional papers.
  2. Departmental/program representatives should be sure that the papers they submit are of sufficient quality.  A department can and should decline to submit a paper if this is not the case.
  3. The editors may request further revision from the author before the paper is published. Authors therefore must agree to make themselves available by email during the early summer. Departmental or program representatives should also be available to assist in these revisions. Both authors and departmental/program representatives should also be available to examine the final page proofs of their papers when they are ready for publication.
  4. Articles published in Chrestomathy should be between 15 and 30 manuscript pages. While portions of Bachelor’s essays will be considered for publication, departmental/program representatives should work closely with the author to assure not only that the submission runs between 15 and 30 pages but also that it functions as a stand-alone article.
