Instructions for Authors

Length of Featured Articles: Length alone is generally not a factor in publication decisions. Innovative formats for longer articles or shorter communications are welcomed.

Formatting and Submission: Gamut submissions should follow the guidelines set forth in the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition.
