Author Guidelines

1. Articles must critically address a question about an aspect of disability and offer a new angle of thought and insight.

2. Articles must involve a critical argument, rather than be merely descriptive.

3. Articles must be submitted in either English of French. Authors must consent to the translation of their abstracts for publication.

4. In submitting a manuscript, authors affirm that the research is original and unpublished, is not in press or under consideration elsewhere, and will not be submitted elsewhere while under consideration by the Journal.

5. Articles must be 3,000-7,000 words (including quotations, references, footnotes, tables, figures, diagrams, and illustrations).

6. In promoting inclusion and accessibility, the Journal accepts and encourages tables, figures, diagrams, and illustrations within the article. However, all tables, figures, diagrams, and illustrations must include detailed written descriptions.

7. The author must include an abstract of 100-150 words summarizing the main arguments and themes of the article, the methods and results obtained, if the author’s own research was conducted, and the conclusions reached. A list of 5-7 keywords must also be included after the abstract.

8. We ask that authors are mindful of their language choices pertaining to disability and that they justify the use of controversial words.

9. Articles are peer-reviewed. Authors’ names and other identifying information must be removed in order to be sent to reviewers.

10. Authors are responsible for ethics approval for manuscripts by receiving approval from their own institutions. Proof of ethics approval (if applicable) must be provided to the Journal.

11. The Journal’s style follows the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA). English spelling follows the most recent edition of the Canadian Oxford Dictionary.

12. Authors of accepted manuscripts must license their work with Creative Commons.

13. The Journal does not produce a print edition. By submitting, authors are consenting to their articles being published online, accessible to the general public.

14. Manuscripts must be double-spaced in 12-point Times New Roman font.

15. Authors are invited to submit their work through the website; email submissions are also welcome.
