Author Guidelines for Situations Journal

The Sit­u­a­tions Col­lec­tive will only review arti­cles sub­mit­ted through the web­site. No email attach­ments or hard copy can be accept­ed for review or publication. 

Sub­mis­sions should observe the guide­lines of the Mod­ern Lan­guage Asso­ci­a­tion (MLA) and of the Amer­i­can Psy­cho­log­i­cal Asso­ci­a­tion. Foot­notes should be ref­er­enced by num­ber imme­di­ate­ly after the each word or term in the body of the text and includ­ed in the bot­tom of the cor­re­spond­ing page. End­notes should be con­vert­ed to foot­notes pri­or to sub­mis­sion. Spelling and oth­er writ­ing con­ven­tions from British and oth­er non‑U.S. con­trib­u­tors will be con­sid­ered on a case by case basis.

If you would like more infor­ma­tion or need help with our web­site sub­mis­sions process, please send email to

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.

  1. 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).
  2. The sub­mis­sion file is in Microsoft Word, RTF, or Word­Per­fect doc­u­ment file format.
  3. 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. Any bib­li­o­graph­ic lists or oth­er ref­er­ences not con­nect­ed to foot­notes should be includ­ed at the end of the text.
  4. The text adheres to the styl­is­tic and bib­li­o­graph­ic require­ments out­lined in the Author Guide­lines, which is found just above in this item of the About Sec­tion of the Online Journal.
  5. All URL address­es in the text (e.g., http://​pkp​.ubc​.ca) are acti­vat­ed and ready to click.
