Representations welcomes submissions of previously unpublished manuscripts. Send digital files, including a short abstract, to the editorial office address below.
Manuscripts should not exceed 40 pages in length, at no more than 300 words per page, including notes.
Double-space throughout, including text, extracts, quotations, and endnotes. Type endnotes separately on pages following the text. In general, follow style guidelines established in the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.
Accepted manuscripts will be returned to authors for a review of copyediting. Proofreading is the author's responsibility. Authors are also responsible for obtaining permissions to quote extracts or reproduce illustrations.
Legible low-resolution files are acceptable for first review. Final acceptance of illustrated manuscripts is conditional upon receipt of high-resolution files. A separate list of captions, including all necessary credits and permission lines, should be submitted with the accepted manuscript, along with documentation of evidence of permissions granted.
