Interplay Style Guide

Manuscripts should be in Word format (.doc or .docx), formatted according to the latest edition of the MLA Handbook, with in-text citations in the form of parenthetical documentation in author-page format.
For web publications, please provide URLs as well as access dates in the Works Cited section.
Do not add Print or Web in a Works Cited entry to indicate if the source is a print or web publication.
Font matters: Use Times New Roman, 12 pt.
Spacing: Use standard double spacing throughout the entire text of your paper.
Do not use footnotes. Use endnotes only if absolutely necessary. Insert the endnotes page (entitled Notes for English and French, Anmerkungen for German, or Notas for Spanish) between article text and works cited section.
Do not use automatic hyphenation in your word processor.
Please use the following section titles in your manuscript:
• for English-language submissions: Abstract, Notes, Works Cited
• for French-language submissions: Abstract, Notes, Bibliographie / Ouvrages Cités / Oeuvres Citées / Euvres Citées
• for German-language submissions: Abstract / Zusammenfassung, Anmerkungen, Literaturverzeichnis
• for Spanish-language submissions: Resumen, Notas, Bibliografía
Submissions should be between 6,000-10,000 words including abstract, notes and references. All submissions should be emailed as attachments to the co-editors and include a brief bio of no more than 100 words, an abstract of 200-300 words, and a list of up to seven key words. To help with the double-blind peer review, file names and document properties need to be anonymized and names and affiliations under the title of the manuscript should be removed before submission.
