Meta publishes only original and unpublished texts, in French, English and Spanish, and exceptionally in other languages (special issues). Articles for the regular issues are freely submitted. Book reviews are sought by the journal.
Articles that are already submitted or published elsewhere, either partially, either in totality, are systematically rejected. Plagiarism is not tolerated and the rejection of the article is automatic at any stage of the process. Authors are invited to fill out the article status form, sign it and fax to 1-514-343-2284, or scan the completed form and send by e-mail to email@example.com. The anonymous peer reviewed process will only start upon receipt of the form (see the Downloading section below).
Manuscripts are submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, in Word (.doc) format. A PDF version of the document reflecting layout suggestions and possible font issues is also required (e.g. when special characters are used).
Articles submitted to Meta as well as book reviews must be carefuly formatted. Unformatted articles will not be considered. The authors may use the detailed stylesheet (see the Downloading section below) to install the Meta styles in their Word software.
Reproduction rights are held by the Presses de l'Université de Montréal (PUM). The authorization request should be sent to Mrs Sandra Soucy (email@example.com).
2. Abridged instructions for articles
2.1. Style and article heading
Authors must refer to the detailed guidelines and use the English style sheet (see Section 3. Downloading below). Use predefined styles for formatting, but number section headers and end notes manually (do not use the Word automatic header numbering or endnote functions).
a) Document format is LetterUS. Use Times New Roman 12 pt for Normal Text, 18 pt for the main title and 10 pt for special sections.
b) Include the following in the article heading, separated by line breaks: the main title (as short as possible); the name of the author(s); author affiliations and e-mail addresses.
c) Provide two 200-word abstracts, one in French, the other in English, as well as five French keywords and five English keywords.
2.2. References in the text
Use the following citation formats: Stanley (1995) shows that … However, according to Livingstone (1998: 45)… Different pages (Stanley 2005: 2, 4, 18) serial pages (Livingstone 2007: 12-20) may be cited. Use “and” to connect the names of dual authors: (Stanley and Livingstone 2006). Use the abbreviation et al. when there are more than two authors: (Stanley, Livingstone et al. 2004). Use a semi-colon to separate references appearing in a series: (Stanley 2004: 45; Livingstone and Stanley 2003: 567-569). Add a lowercase letter to dates for articles published by an author in the same year: (1995a; 1995b). Latin adverbs, such as ibidem, passim, apud (use cited in: instead), must be avoided.
2.3. Quotations and examples
Quotations and examples inserted in the text must be short. If they exceed three lines, indent the text and use Times Roman 10 pt font.
2.4. Reference section
The references are in Times New Roman 10 pt fonts and listed alphabetically order by the authors’ family names. Please refer to the detailed guidelines for specific cases and page formatting.
