Teaching Ethics


Authors should follow these guidelines. Manuscripts should be sent as attachments via email to [email protected] in Microsoft Word 6.0 (or later version) format. An abstract of not more than 150 words should accompany each submission along with full contact information, including name, title, institution, and email and mailing addresses. All articles will be subject to blind review and editorial modification.

1. Submissions should be between 2400-8000 words (which equals about 6-20 journal pages).

2. Manuscripts should be submitted in MS Word or RTF format to facilitate import of styled text into the typesetting system. Any reasonable formatting style and system for notes and references is acceptable at the time of submission. However, if the paper is accepted for publication, the author will be asked to bring it into line with the formatting requirements of The Chicago Manual of Style). A helpful resource on The Chicago Manual of Style is available here.

3. Please use a References section to cite full bibliographic information. Do not use notes for citations. If notes are needed, use Endnotes rather than Footnotes, after the main text and before the References section.

4. A complete submission includes full contact information, including name, academic title, institution, phone number, e-mail (preferably both a primary and secondary if possible), and mailing address.

5. All submitted manuscripts are subject to editorial modification during the peer-review process.

6. Prior to publication the author may be asked to provide original source files for any charts or graphs in the manuscript. Authors should avoid the use of charts or graphs copied from online sources, as these may not be suitable for reproduction in print format.

7. If an earlier version of your paper was presented in public, please provide details in the first endnote, e.g., “An earlier version of this paper was presented at the Seventh Annual Conference of the Society for Ethics Across the Curriculum, Ringling School of Art and Design, Sarasota, Florida, November 19, 2006.”

8. Also in the first endnote, credit anonymous reviewer(s) if you feel your paper benefited from those comments (if only to acknowledge that the paper has gone through a blind review process and that the published version of the paper benefited from that process).

9. Break you paper into sections with non-numbered headings (except for the first introductory section), unless there is some other overriding reason not to do so.
