FORMAT GUIDELINES FOR _PMC_ REVIEWS
You can save us a good deal of work by following these guidelines:
Reviews should generally run between 2000 and 3500 words, or about
8-14 ordinary manuscript pages.
Set margins to half-inch left, two-inch right, and set your font
to Courier 10cpi (or any 10cpi, non-proportional font). This is very
important, as it prevents too many characters on a line.
Put a title at the top of the first page, and under it your name,
institutional affiliation, email address, and mailing address.
Center these lines.
Number all paragraphs of your text with bracketed numbers. These
bracketed numbers should be margin-released into the left-hand
margin (this will place them at the 0" spot on the line).
Indent (to 1") the first line of each pargraph and all lines of set-
Single-space the document throughout.
Use _this_ for underlining titles, *this* for bold print or
emphasis, %this% for foreign words, and ^this^ for superscript.
Footnotes, if any, should follow MLA format.
Page references in the text, if any, should not be preceded by p.,
pp., or any other notation; use just the page number itself.
Send your submission to the review editor at [log in to unmask], not to the
_PMC_ offices. Submissions can also be sent on floppy disk to Paula
at the Department of English, 215 University Hall, Northwestern
1897 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60208. If e-mailing, make sure the
document is not encoded, and that it has been stripped of all
word-processing codes (i.e, saved as ASCII or DOS text).
