Submission Guidelines

The Luther College webzine, published seasonally, encourages submissions of scholarly and creative work from registered Luther College at the University of Regina students, U of R students who have taken a Luther class and are submitting work from that class, and Luther faculty, staff, and alumni. Submissions must be of a high quality, and they must be accessible to a general audience. Pieces will be reviewed by an editorial board, which reserves the right to require revisions before sending material forward for publication.

 Aims

  • To allow Luther College faculty, staff and students to share their work and ideas with a broader audience. Creative and visual submissions are welcome (ex. photo essays, poems, etc).
  • To allow Luther College to “showcase” its talent and people.
  • To help the College define and reach its constituency.
  • To foster discourse within that constituency, especially within the Church.

Boundaries

  • The webzine is not a blog. It is a place to share quality work, not unsupported opinion.
  • The webzine is not a substitute for peer-reviewed journals or other publications, although material appearing here would count as a nonpeer-reviewed publication under the promotion and tenure criteria for faculty.
  • Material on the webzine must be aimed at a general audience. It is not the place for overly technical papers.

Organization

  • The webzine will be housed within the Luther College website and published seasonally, with the option of appearing more frequently as interest and submissions warrant.
  • An editorial board will be appointed by the president of the College with the concurrence of Luther's Academic Affairs committee.
  • The editorial board shall be solely responsible for the content and policy of the webzine. The webzine editors have the final say on all submissions and may request revisions for style or substance.

Format

  • Scholarly articles must not exceed 2500 words, and shorter articles are strongly encouraged. If you have specific questions about length requirements for other media, please contact a member of the editorial board.
  • Both scholarly and creative submissions are encouraged. Creative submissions can be written or visual, and they must be made available in electronic format.
  • Written pieces must be submitted in “Microsoft Word (.doc)" or rich text (.rtf) format. Images can be submitted as .jpg (for photographs) or . gif (graphs, charts, maps) files, and they should not exceed a resolution of 72 dpi.
  • If you are using an image, you must submit an authorisation form stating (1) that you own the digital and print rights to the image, or (2) that you have obtained permission to reproduce the image (present written permission with the form).
  • Writers must observe all copyright regulations and carefully cite their sources. Authors will retain copyright to their work; Luther College will copyright the webzine.
  • The webzine is designed to be interactive and cross-linked with other publicly available electronic resources. For this reason, authors are encouraged to include hyperlinks to other websites in their pieces (a list of hyperlink URLs should be provided with submissions).

 Style

  • Authors may use the spelling and punctuation style of their choosing (UK, US or CAN), though they are expected to apply that style consistently throughout their pieces. If you are using a particular style guide (i.e. Canadian Press Stylebook, Oxford Guide to Canadian Usage), please indicate this to the editorial board.
  • Accepted referencing styles include MLA, APA and Chicago.
  • The webzine is designed to be interactive and cross-linked with other publicly available electronic resources. For this reason, authors are encouraged to include hyperlinks to other websites in their pieces (a list of hyperlink URLs should be provided with submissions).
