Author Guidelines

Article-Length Manuscripts

All submissions should conform to MLA style (9th edition) and be free of citation software formatting. The name of the author should be removed from the submission (including in the Document Properties) and appear on a separate page along with contact information, including phone number and email address as well as a 150-200–word abstract. If submitting via the website, ensure your profile information includes address and phone number, and that you have completed the fields for the abstract and keywords during the submission process.

The editors invite submission of article-length manuscripts of approximately 25 pages or 7000 words, with some leeway for lengthy footnotes, endnotes, or Works Cited.

If you are submitting images with your article, please ensure they are 300dpi TIFF/JPEG/PNG files. Please note that authors need to obtain permissions for all copyrighted images before they can be published as part of their articles. If you are unsure as to how to go about obtaining permissions, please let us know and we can advise you.

Peer Review Process

Each submitted manuscript is first assessed by the editorial board to determine a) whether it is a strong enough submission to be considered for publication in Jeunesse,* and b) whether it fits the journal's mandate. If suitable, the manuscript then undergoes double-blind peer review by two reviewers and is evaluated on the following basis:

  • logic of argument;
  • soundness of research and theoretical framework, including scope and quality of references;
  • extent of contribution to scholarship in the area; and
  • quality and style of writing.

The editors make an effort to seek reviewers internationally based on their expertise.

Normal turn-around time for evaluation of manuscripts is six months from the date of receipt.

*Authors are advised to consult The MLA Handbook's guidelines for writing research papers.
