Submission guidelines

Editorial policy: The RCBLPE is a refereed journal. Original manuscripts will be considered for publication. Work that has been published or is being considered for publication elsewhere will not be accepted. Manuscripts that appear to meet the goals of the Journal will be reviewed by three independent reviewers before a decision is made on publication. 
 
Submission: Original articles may be submitted in English, French, Spanish, or Portuguese. Manuscripts must conform to the style-guide specified below, and must contain an abstract and a list of key words. Manuscripts in digital format only (compatible with Microsoft Word or compatible file) should be sent to the Editor's e-mail address. 
 
Style: The RCBLPE uses the new style guide adopted by the Linguistics Society of America, Linguist List: http://linguistlist.org/pubs/tocs/JournalUnifiedStyleSheet2007.pdf

Everything in the manuscript should be double spaced (including the titles and headings, notes, indented quotes, and references), and margins of approximately 1-1/2 inches (3.8 cm) should be left on all four sides of each sheet. Use 8-1/2 x 11 inch or DIN A4 (or similar) page size. 
 
Corrections: Authors are asked to check their manuscripts very carefully before submitting them to prevent delays at the proof stage. Authors should make every effort to prepare their manuscripts very cleanly and have as few corrections on any typed page as possible. Please keep the Editors informed of your whereabouts so that proofs can be sent to you. Authors will need to correct them and return them to the Editor within twenty-one days of receipt.
