Guidelines for Submission

Scientia Scholae is dedicated exclusively to the promulgation of Medieval Studies at the K-12 levels. It is being launched in electronic format September 2002 and will be published electronically twice a year, on August 1 and February 1, thereafter. The former date is meant to aid teachers who are in the midst of preparing their upcoming academic courses; the latter serves as a supplement to those who have had time to implement ideas, or to create new ones, although articles pertaining to the next academic year and its preparations are certainly welcome.

Scientia Scholae publishes work of three general types: (1) reports on promising new classroom techniques, educational programs, curricula, and methods of evaluating instructional effectiveness; (2) accounts of recent trends in any fields of research related to Medieval Studies; and (3) critical reviews of audiovisual materials, textbooks, and other secondary works suitable for classroom use – in particular, Scientia Scholae is looking for evaluations of their scholarly reliability, formats, and effectiveness of presentation. Reviews are commissioned in advance. Readers interested in contributing reviews are asked to advise the Editor of their qualifications and special interests.

Scientia Scholae asks that those persons wishing to submit an article follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 14th Edition. Manuscripts are to be double spaced, including all quotations and end notes, and submitted in triplicate. They may be sent as an electronic mail attachment in Microsoft Word (MS Word 97), or by regular mail to the address listed below. Final decisions on manuscripts usually require a minimum of eight to ten weeks. We cannot return articles which have not been accepted unless a self-addressed, stamped envelope was enclosed with the article. Manuscripts accepted for publication will be requested on computer disk or by electronic submission. The editors, who are the final judges of matters concerning grammar, usage, and other conventions, will edit contributions to conform to the normal manner of presentation in Scientia Scholae.

Manuscripts should be submitted to the Managing Editor: Kevin J. Ruth, Senior Lecturer in French, Tower Hill School, 2813 West 17th St., Wilmington, DE 19806. Attachments via electronic mail may be sent to kruth@towerhill.org.

There is no subscription fee for Scientia Scholae. Any additional inquiries should be directed to the Managing Editor at the address above. Back issues will be archived on the TEAMS website at http://www.teamsmedieval.org/.
