Author Guidelines

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically (jstarfield@uj.ac.za). They should be double-spaced (including notes, references and quoted matter), and should be arranged to conform with the system for parenthetical documentation set out in the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (Second edition, 1984).

Contributors are urged to familiarize themselves with the conventions of this style, and to note that the Editor reserves the right to return any manuscript accepted for publication to its author for re-formatting. Notes are gathered at the end of the body of the text, and should be confined to (a) content notes offering the reader comment, explanation, or information that the text cannot accommodate; and (b) bibliographic notes containing either several sources or evaluative comment on sources.

References in the text are indicated by the surname(s) of the author(s) and page number(s) in parentheses, e.g. (Ndebele 191). If reference is made to more than one work by the same author, the work's title, or a shortened version, is included after the author's name, e.g. (Coetzee, "Farm Novel" 17).

Contributors may if they prefer use the author-date variant of the MLA style as set out in section 5.7.1 of the Handbook, e.g. (Coetzee 1988, 17). Works referred to are listed on a separate page at the end of the manuscript under the heading Works Cited
