Author Guidelines

All article submissions must conform to TWPL's Style Sheet (PDF) (DOC). Authors should ensure that their submissions' fonts, margins, spacing, headings, headers, footers, examples, and references are formatted as indicated in the style sheet.


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.

  1. The submission file is in PDF file format.
  2. The fonts are embedded in the PDF (so that it appears correctly on computers that may not have special fonts installed).
  3. The references at the end of the paper are complete and accurate.
  4. The paper has been formatted according to TWPL's Style Sheet. (Those submitting dissertations, generals papers, and MA forum papers can ignore this step but must still check off this step to proceed).
