The submissions should be no longer than 7000 words and adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style (Author-Name Style), Sixteenth Edition. Footnotes should be used rather than endnotes.

When you are resubmitting the manuscript in response to reviewer comments, do not submit it as a new submission. Upload the new version under "Upload Author Version" in the "Review" tab for your existing entry in the journal system. Please notify the editor you have been communicating with that a new version has been submitted. If you have responses to the recommended changes, send these directly to the editor, which will include them in the correspondence with the reviewers. The abstract cannot be updated in the journal system, so if you perfer to revise it, please add a new version at the beginning of the resubmitted manuscript.
