Please use either minimal footnotes, or preferably no footnotes at all. Cite references in the text by typing in parentheses the last name(s) of author(s), followed by the year the work was published, a colon (:) and page numbers if you are citing a specific passage. Immediately after the text, under the heading “REFERENCES,” list complete reference citations alphabetically by the senior author’s last name, using the standard style.

Captions for illustrations should be typed together on a separate page (labeled Figure Captions) and not included on the illustration itself. Illustrations must be of professional quality.
