Rights You will be asked if any special copyright arrangements exist with regards to the work (e.g. co-authorship, instituional copyright). If no such special arrangement obtains, you can leave the field blank.

Keywords You will be asked to provide keywords for the subject area(s). These terms are to facilitate searches of the database(s) containing the work. Please use a few (at least 3-5) terms that would help identify your work in such a search - area terms (e.g. 'aesthetics', 'practical ethics') as well as jargon terms (e.g. 'consequentialism', 'phenomenology' ) are the most useful.

Language You will be asked what language the work is in. The journal accepts and publishes work in a number of languages: English and French, as well as First Nations languages. We cannot provide translation services, but we will work with authors to produce and publish translations of works where these are wanted.

References You will be asked to provide a list of your references separately. This is not required, and is to aid us in listing the referernces in database indices that ask for them.

The final document should be in PDF or in a RTF/Word file (.doc) that can be easily converted to PDF. The text should be structured consistently.
