  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-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.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

Submissions to CSI/ÉCI must be submitted online as Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) documents. Submissions written with software other than Word must be checked by the author for compatibility with Word before submission.The text should be single-spaced. Submissions should not exceed 6,000 words and must follow the MLA Handbook of Style, eighth edition. Submissions that do not employ MLA style will be returned to author(s) and not assessed by the journal's editors. Please use embedded references and where necessary use endnotes rather than footnotes. At the end of your paper include a list only of Works Cited in the paper. All article submissions are peer-reviewed. Please be careful to remove any author identification and use "Author" and year in the bibliography and footnotes, instead of authors' names, titles, etc. for self-authored works. The author's name must also be removed from the document's Properties, which in Microsoft Word is found in the File menu. Please submit as supplementary files along with your manuscript any Web-ready images, sound, or audio clips, that you would like to include in your online publication. The total number of sound samples should not exceed 4 minutes. Do not list your name as creator or owner of the file in order to protect the blind peer review. All images must be placed in the document by the author. Submissions must not have been previously published nor be before another journal for consideration. In any other circumstance, an explanation must be provided in Comments to the Editor. Submissions that are not formatted using MLA or do not follow the above Author Guidelines will be returned to the author.
