Please review these guidelines prior to submitting your manuscript.

Author’s Responsibilities

Authors should check references and quotations before submitting a manuscript and are responsible for obtaining permission to reprint extracts and reproduce illustrations. Copies of permission forms should be supplied with the final manuscript. All necessary credits and acknowledgements should be included in the figure legends. Authors must also perform a preemption check so as to ensure the originality, applicability and relevance of the manuscript.

Simultaneous Submissions

The Review does not accept submissions that are currently under consideration for publication by other journals.


The Review adheres to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2010) for all issues in relation to style and grammar.

Format Specifications

The document must be double spaced with half inch margins and should not exceed 20,000 words including footnotes. Footnotes should conform to the  Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (8th ed). Please do not submit manuscripts with endnotes.

Only Microsoft Word format is acceptable.


Please provide your contact information (address, telephone number, and e-mail address) in a document separate from your submission (for example, within the body of your email is acceptable). Please do not include any information within your submission which may identify you as the author.

Selection Process

A two-step review process is conducted by the Editorial Board and two external peer reviewers. Your document is considered anonymously; no weight is given to one’s prior publication, previous submissions, or institutional affiliation. Only papers which pass an internal evaluation by the Editorial Board will proceed to external review.

The Editorial Board reserves the right to make editorial changes in submissions accepted for publication.  These changes include any revisions or additions that are necessary to ensure correctness of grammar and spelling, clarification of meaning, and adherence to  the Review citation style.  The Editorial Board also reserves the right to refuse or withdraw acceptance, or delay publication of any submission.
