Published in Association with Ohio State University, The
JPL Review Articles:
Manuscripts. Manuscripts of review articles for publication in the journal and editorial correspondence pertaining to review articles should be submitted online through http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jpl. Submit a PDF file with author names and contact information cut from the text and placed in a separate word document. Although JPL does not have formal limits for articles, the editor recommends that you limit review articles to 11,000 words.
References. References should be cited in the text, giving the author’s name and year of publication. For example: (Lynch 1960), (Lynch 1960, ch. 2), (Lynch 1960, 109). References should be listed alphabetically by the author’s last name and typed double-spaced beginning on a separate sheet at the end of the manuscript. Bibliographic information should be ordered as follows: author’s last name, first name, and middle initial; publication date; title of work; and (in the case of books) the place of publication and publisher or (in the case of articles) the periodical title, volume and issue number, and inclusive page numbers. For further guidelines, see The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed.
Illustrations. Because JPL publishes literature reviews, illustrations will typically not be used. If illustrations appear essential, however, those submitted with an article should be of professional quality, ready for reproduction (camera-ready), and separate from the text. All artwork should be clear, sharp, black-and-white originals. Use cross-hatching in lieu of shading; photocopies and output from dot matrix printers are unacceptable. Photographs should be glossy or halftone prints with sharp contrast, rather than snapshots. All lettering should be typeset or professionally lettered. Figures should be capable of legible reproduction to a size no larger than 5.5 x 8 inches (full page) and preferably no larger than 5.5 x 4 inches (half page); they should be numbered consecutively, and the number and author’s name should be penciled lightly on the back of each. All illustrations must have captions, which should appear on the artwork, but should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet at the end of the manuscript. If there is any potential for doubt, the word top should be written on the back of the illustration. ______________________________________________________________________
Council of Planning Librarian (CPL) Bibliographies:
Bibliographies for publication in the journal as a CPL Bibliography or correspondence pertaining to them should be submitted online through http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jpl. Submissions should fill a significant need in the planning literature. Although JPL does not have formal limits for articles, the editor recommends that you limit CPL annotated bibliographies to 40,000 words. Authors should clearly state the scope of the bibliography and the method of its compilation. They should provide complete bibliographic citations. Annotations are highly recommended.
Table of Contents. The bibliography should have a table of contents that categorizes the topic into convenient and practical subcategories and facilitates use of the bibliography by the reader.
Introduction. The bibliography should have an introduction section that gives a general overview of the topic and particulars on the bibliographic treatment to follow. Authors should clearly define the scope of the bibliography in two ways. First, they should detail the method used in its compilation (e.g., library catalogs, periodical indexes, databases, and special collections) and identify other resources consulted and search terms and strategies used. Second, they should describe the scope of the bibliography in terms of limitations on citations selected for inclusion. Limitations may relate to time period, geographic area, place of publication, language, publication format, and intended audience.
Citations. Complete bibliographic citations (e.g., full author names, publication titles, volume and issue numbers are required). CPL Bibliographies is guided by The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed. (2003). A style sheet is available from the Managing Editor, Journal of Planning Literature, 105 Brown Hall, 275 West Woodruff, Columbus, OH 43210 (or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Annotations. Annotations are highly recommended and should be numbered sequentially for easy reference in the index(es). If annotations are not provided, the bibliography should be topically arranged to facilitate use.
Indexes. All bibliographies should have the appropriate indexing (e.g., author, title, and/or subject indexes). ________________________________________________________________________
General Guidelines Manuscripts:
Format. Must be typewritten, double-spaced, in a word document format. All copy must be double-spaced including quoted matter, references, notes, captions, and tables.
Abstract. Each manuscript should be accompanied by a 100-word abstract.
Style, Spelling, and Usage. The journal is guided in matters of style, spelling, and usage by The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed. and Webster’s Tenth New International Dictionary (G. & G. Merriam 1993).
Explanatory Notes. When necessary for clarification, explanatory notes (not footnotes) may be used. Their length and number should be kept to a minimum. Notes should be consecutively numbered and typed double-spaced beginning on a separate sheet following the text and preceding the references. For further guidance, see The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed.
Author Affiliation. Article title, author’s name, professional title, and institutional affiliation should appear on a cover page. The title of the article (but not the author’s name) should appear again on the first text page as a means of identification. JPL and CPL circulate submitted manuscripts for review without disclosing the author’s name or institutional affiliation.
Tables. Tables should be titled, numbered consecutively with Arabic numbers, and typed double-spaced on separate sheets of paper at the end of the manuscript. The appropriate placement of each table should be indicated in the text.
Copyright Material. Permission to reprint any previously published material included in the article (for example, tables, extensive quotations, illustrations) must be obtained by the author from the copyright owner.
Authors who would like to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider using the services of a professional English-language editing company. We highlight some of these companies at http://www.sagepub.com/journalgateway/engLang.htm.
Please be aware that SAGE has no affiliation with these companies and makes no endorsement of them. An author's use of these services in no way guarantees that his or her submission will ultimately be accepted. Any arrangement an author enters into will be exclusively between the author and the particular company, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author.
