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.
- The submission has achieved a High Distinction. If there is a particular work that did not gain this grade but you are proud of, please submit it with an explanation as to why you are proud of it and believe it should be published. For example, the work may be from a course that has a higher degree of difficulty and slightly missed an HD.
- The submission was submitted as coursework, has been marked and returned, and has not been accepted for publication at a different publication. If it has been submitted at other publications but you do not know its status there, please include this in the required information accompanying the submission and inform the editors as soon as you can if you need to withdraw the article from consideration at Merici.
- We ask that works are submitted as Microsoft Word documents.
- Works should be between 1,000 and 5,000 words. Longer pieces may be submitted but please be aware an abridged version of the work will be published. Types of works include essays, policy briefs, literature reviews, artworks (digital scans or photographs), and creative writing works (including prose, poetry and plays).
If the article contains copyrighted images from other published sources, permission will be needed before the image can be used in a published article.
- once the article has been accepted, contact the authors or journal to request permission
- provide a copy of the approval email/form
If all images, graphs, and tables are the author’s own creation, authors will need to explain somewhere in the document that no permissions were necessary as the figures/tables are original and were created by the author.
