Submission Guidelines

If you have an article you would like to submit for review and potentially included in a future issue of the Journal, it must adhere to the following style guide. You must be a EHS member in order to submit any articles for review. Not a member? Join Today.

  • All four margins should be at least one inch and each should be consistent throughout.

  • Manuscripts should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words.
  • Format all manuscripts as a Microsoft Word document (.docx) before uploading. 

  • Double-space your manuscript, including the text, indented (block) quotations, notes, and bibliography.
  • Do not use ALL CAPS for body text, selected sentences, or subheads. 

  • Using MLA formatting, place notes at the end of your manuscript, not as footnotes. Endnotes should be the same size as the main text.  

  • Do not use abbreviations within the text, but you may use them in parenthetical references. Instead of using common abbreviations such as "e.g." use "for example" in the text. Use "pages" instead of "p./pp.", and "following" instead of "f./ff.". 

  • Give proper citations for books, articles, and websites. 

  • Use precise page numbers and verse numbers. 

  • Capitalize personal, possessive, objective, and reflexive pronouns (but not relative pronouns) when referring to God: "My, Me, Mine, You, He, His, Him, Himself," but "who, whose, whom."

  • Use an indented block format for quotations of three or more lines. Use inline formatting for shorter quotes and encase in quotation marks. 

  • First-level headers should be in all caps and flush left and separate from the paragraph. Second-level headings within a first-level section should be flush left, italicized, in upper and lower case, and should also be separate from the following paragraph. 

Acceptance is based on the evaluation of the submission by a peer-review jury comprised of members of the Editorial Board of the Journal. It is always the General Editor's prerogative to edit or shorten entries if necessary. If you have questions, you can contact the general editor at editor@ehomiletics.org
