HUMANIMALIA's STATEMENT OF PROCEDURES. All opinions expressed in signed contributions appearing in Humanimalia are those of the author(s); they are not necessarily those of the publishers or editors.
Humanimalia is a refereed and selective online journal. All articles submitted to Humanimalia pass through a three-stage peer review and revision process: (1) the article is initially reviewed by the editors of Humanimalia; (2) if it is judged to be potentially publishable, then the article is sent to our editorial consultants for further review; (3) if the outside reviews are positive, a Humanimalia editor is then assigned to work with the author to prepare the article for eventual publication.
Any contribution that is accepted for publication in Humanimalia is done so with the understanding and under the author's warranty (1) that it has not been previously published in English, and will not be published elsewhere until after it has been published in Humanimalia ; (2) that the author will be financially responsible for any legal action taken against Humanimalia by cause of his/her contribution; (3) that Humanimalia retains the right to republish the contribution in any issue or reissue of Humanimalia in any form, including the Humanimalia website, and to reprint it in any anthology sponsored by Humanimalia ; (4) that in any subsequent republication of the contribution, the author will acknowledge its first publication in Humanimalia .
When submitting an article to Humanimalia, please format it according to the following guidelines:
1. PC-compatible files only (MS Word or WordPerfect preferred);
2. required length: 5,000-15,000 words;
3. on a separate page/post, include your name and your postal and e-mail addresses, the title of your essay, and a brief abstract of its contents (3-5 sentences);
3. for the text itself: margins at 1", double spaced, font size 12 pt. or smaller;
4. use MLA Style for all documentation;
5. include Notes and Works Cited at the end as regular text. In other words, please do NOT use the "automatic" footnote/endnote function on your word processor to generate these. They sometimes tend to disappear when traveling through cyberspace or when the document is converted.
For matters of writing style with respect to endnotes, works cited, and references in running text, contributors should follow the style of the MLA Style Manual, 1999. Precise information on the following must be provided. For books: the place of publication, publisher, date, and page numbers for quoted or paraphrased passages, and (for articles in anthologies) inclusive page numbers. If the edition cited is a later edition, provide also the date of the first edition. For articles in periodicals: volume number or (if there is no volume number) whole number, date of issue cited, page numbers for quoted or paraphrased passages, and inclusive page numbers.
Submissions should be sent to Istvan Csicsery-Ronay (firstname.lastname@example.org). MLA documentation is preferred. We encourage multimedia submissions and welcome you to submit images (in .jpg format), video clips (in flash video format), and audio files (in .mp3 format) as part of your work. They may be sent either electronically as an e-mail attachment or as a diskette (non-returnable) and a single hard copy via regular post. Please include, if possible, an e-mail and a postal address with the submission.
Snail-Mail correspondence should be addressed to Istvan Csicsery-Ronay, Jr., Dept. of English, DePauw University, Greencastle, IN 46135.
