Author Guidelines

Author’s Style Guide for Journal of Somaesthetics

0. The length of paper should be betweem 5000 and 8000 words.

1.Format Text and first page information

  • Use single spacing and left justification throughout.

  • Set off quotations in block quote with a blank line before and after the quotation.

  • On the first page, put your paper’s Title and your name as you wish it to appear in print.

  • Contact information appears after author name: Name, Academic Title, Academic Address, email.  If the author wishes correspondence to be sent to a non-academic address, that information goes after the academic information.

  • After contact information, put your abstract of between 60 and 90 words.


2.Punctuation and Spelling

  • Use Times New Roman, 12-point font

  • Use Double quotation marks for quotations

  • Please use American rather than British English unless quoted material is otherwise

  • Punctuation (commas, periods, question and exclamation marks) should come before close quotation marks, not after.

 

2. Internal Section Numbering

  • Only use 1.  2.   3.  etc for internal sections.  

  • You may have section titles, thus:  3. Hume’s Argument against Miracles <in bold>

  • Do not use subsections such as A. B. C.   or   2.1  2.2  2.3  etc.

 

3.Format acknowledgements, footnotes and check for style of citation

  • Acknowledgements go first, then References. DO NOT footnote the title, or the paper’s first sentence, or the last sentence of the text in order to make acknowledgements. Convert such things into Acknowledgements that have their own separate paragraph after the end of your paper.

  • Do not use the in-text citation method with references/bibliography—convert all citations into footnotes, although repeated citations from a given work may be given their page numbers parenthetically in the body of the text to avoid excessive use of footnotes.

  • Within footnotes, use en-dash for paginations and include all page numbers: pp. 234–237 not p. 234-7.

  • Do not use obscure abbreviations such as cf. or ff. or op. cit. anywhere in the text or endnotes.

  • Put footnotes into Chicago Manual Style, thus:

 

1. John Dewey, “Philosophies of Freedom,” in The Later Works of John Dewey, vol. 3, ed. Jo Ann Boydston (Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press, 1984), p. 94.

2. Suzanne Rice, “Dewey on Virtue, Character, and Moral Education,” Review Journal of Philosophy and Social Science 26 (2000): 75–89.

3. Aleksandar Fatic, “Retribution in Democracy,” in Political Dialogue: Theories and Practices, ed. Stephen Esquith (Amsterdam: Rodopi, 1996), pp. 335–355.

4. Thomas Nagel, “Moral Luck,” in Nagel, Mortal Questions (Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 1979), p. 37.

5. Daniel Dennett, Elbow Room: The Varieties of Free Will Worth Wanting (Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press, 1984), pp. 89–94.

6. Nagel, “Moral Luck,” p. 38.

7. Ibid., pp. 39–40.

 

  • In addition to footnotes, your paper should have a list of references at the end of your paper. Format References section into the correct style:
