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.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word file format.
  • The text uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The submission is accompanied by a brief abstract (of no more than 250 words ) and a table of contents.
  • All tables and figures in the submission include a title, heading or reference such as "Table 1" or “Figure 1”.
  • The author will be prepared to provide a succinct description to be used as alt text for any graphs, charts, diagrams and images found within the submission. This is in keeping with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.

Author Guidelines

SUBMISSIONS

The Review has a preference for manuscripts that are less than 10,000 words. Longer manuscripts will be published where the length is justified and space is available. Manuscripts must be submitted as Word documents in English or French and not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. If necessary, manuscripts can be mailed to Professor Tanovich and Dr. Waters: The Canadian Bar Review, Faculty of Law, University of Windsor, 401 Sunset Avenue, Windsor, Ontario, N9B 3P4.

CBR STYLE

Matters of style and citation are governed by Review house style and the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (8th ed.).

Abstract: Articles, but not Comments, are preceded by a short abstract (less than 100 words) in both English and French drafted by contributors or the editors. The Review will arrange for the translation of abstracts.

Headings: Contributors should avoid excessive use or stacking of headings. Headings should only be used to mark a significant change in content.

Quotations: Contributors should avoid excessive quotation of the work of others. Citing sources, rather than block quoting from them, is sufficient in most instances.

Footnotes: Manuscripts may be submitted with either footnotes or endnotes. Contributors should avoid using footnotes to extend textual discussion.

COPYRIGHT 

Copyright is reserved jointly to the Review and the author of any text published. Requests for permission to reproduce such text, in whole or in part, should be sent to the author and to the Editor. Except where the material is to be reproduced in and used solely for instruction in an educational institution fees of $250 must be paid to the Canadian Bar Foundation. Credit must be given to the author and the Review.
