Guidelines for the Preparation of
Electronic Manuscripts for TMR
Review follows the Chicago
Manual of Style (14th Edition) in most matters of editorial practice.
The average length of reviews is
about 1500 words, but we require that all submissions be between 800
and 2500 words in length. If, for some reason, your review does
not fall between those limits, please inform the editors.
Your review should be e-mailed to
TMRL@indiana.edu. The review should be submitted in
machine-readable form, either as text pasted into the body of an e-mail
message or as an e-mail attachment. If you are sending an
attachment, we prefer a Microsoft Word document; if you use a program
different from Word, please save your file in "rich text format/RTF"
(usually an option in the "save as" menu).
Please do not use underlining or
italics in your review. Instead, set off the text with the tags
<i></i>. The text would look like this when you submit it:
<i>italicized or underlined text</i>.
If you quote directly from the book, please include the page or page
numbers of the reference, in parentheses after the quote, as
Please provide bibliographic
information for the book you are reviewing. When possible, the invoice
for the book will be included inside the front cover to make this
information easier for you to obtain. In some cases, the invoice
cannot be included and bibliographic information may then be obtained
from individual publishers’ websites, or from online vendors such as
Amazon.com, or from any major book retailer, such as Barnes and Noble
In addition to the usual
bibliographic identifiers like author, title, publisher and place and
date of publication, please include the number of pages, the price of
the volume and the ISBN number. Make sure to set off the title
with the <i></i> tags.
Finally, please include your name,
your affiliation, and your preferred email address below the
bibliographic citation. This is for the convenience of interested
scholars who wish to follow up on items.
The entire header of your review
should look like this:
Author lastname (editor or translator
necessary), author firstname. <i>Title</i>.
of Publication: Publisher, Date of Publication. Pp. xxx.
Price. ISBN #.
