Instructions for Authors

Revue YOUR Review invites student-authors who have recently presented their work at York University’s annual juried Undergraduate Research Fair to revise and submit a paper for consideration for publication in this refereed e-journal. Calls for submissions are sent to participants after each annual Fair. Works must present original research, not yet published and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Submissions should show evidence of scholarship appropriate to the field of study and are evaluated for originality, clarity, relevance, timeliness, and readability for an interdisciplinary audience. Authors are encouraged to attend a writing-for-publication workshop offered by York University’s Writing Department.

Submissions should be in MS Word or RTF format (12-point font) and are accepted in English or in French. Articles should not exceed 3500 words (up to 15 pages double-spaced) and must use APA style (6th edition) for layout, in-text citations, and bibliography, along with the Canadian Oxford Dictionary for spelling. Photographs or other images must be labelled and require permission from the creator. In addition to the paper itself, submissions should include: a title page with author name(s) and a permanent email address and/or telephone number, an abstract of 150-200 words (double-spaced), a list of key terms, a bibliography in APA style, and the date of presentation at York University’s Undergraduate Research Fair as well as the date of submission for consideration for publication in this e-journal.

Submissions are reviewed by the Editorial Board and may be sent to expert readers in the discipline. Those articles accepted for publication or accepted with conditions will be copy-edited by students in an upper-year publishing practicum. Authors may be expected to work closely with copy editors, writing faculty, and/or the journal editors in editing and revising their work.
