Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in .pdf, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format. PDF is the preferred format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided. URLs should not appear in the body of the manuscript, only in the References, as per APA.
  • The text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

    An Abstract of 250 words or less is included. The abstract should include searchable key words to allow prospective readers to locate your article by typing key words into a search engine. Please do not include citations in the abstract.

    5-10 keywords are included. Because the journal aims to highlight contributions from and about Canada, we recommend that "Canada" is one of the key words.

  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.

Author Guidelines

Manuscripts submitted to this journal must have a focus on academic integrity in the Canadian context. Contributions from practitioners, researchers, and students are welcome.

The journal is limited to submissions authored by Canadians. Co-authored submissions are considered when the first author works or studies at a Canadian institution. Proof of insitutional affiliation may be required from all authors.

Authors must have an e-mail address from a Canadian educational institution. Independent Canadian scholars and practitioners without a Canadian institutional e-mail address should send a query letter to the editor before submitting a manuscript.

We accept manuscripts of varying lengths, though the minimum length is 500 words, exclusive of title, abstract, and references.

Submissions must include an Abstact, Keywords, and References.

APA citing and referencing must be followed for all sources, including websites (i.e., no hyperlinks in the body of the work).

Contributors should use self-citations sparingly and judiciously. A contributor may include a maximum of three-self citations. In other words, a contributor's name may not appear in the References list more than three times. The number of self-citations should not exceed 10% of the total number of citations. (In other words, if ten sources are referenced in total, not more than one should be a self-citation. If twenty sources are cited, not more than two should be self citations, and so on.)

At this time, the journal accepts submissions only in English. Manuscripts should be carefully copyedited before submission.


Practitioner Articles

Articles submitted to the Practioner's section of the journal will be edited, but will not undergo peer review.
