Guidelines for Authors

Canadian Slavonic Papers / Revue canadienne des slavistes welcomes manuscripts in either English or French from all scholars. Since the journal is made possible by member support, authors—if they are not already members—will be requested to join the Canadian Association of Slavists when they submit their manuscripts.

CSP/RCS accepts original submissions only. Do not send a previously published article, even if it has appeared in another language. Only unpublished manuscripts that are not under consideration by another journal will be considered.

All manuscripts will be submitted for evaluation to two or three outside appraisers in a process designed to ensure complete anonymity. Decision on publication normally takes about four months. Authors must warrant that during the assessment process the manuscript will not be under consideration by any other journal.

Procedures for submission can be found on the site of our publisher, Taylor and Francis. Please follow our style guidelines carefully, though initial submissions may use footnotes rather than endnotes.

Manuscripts should normally be submitted electronically using the Editorial Manager system. This system can be accessed using our links here or by clicking the green “Submit an article” button on the CSP/RCS page of Taylor & Francis Online. (Editorial Manager can also be found on the “Instructions to Authors” section of the Taylor & Francis site; please hover over the name of the journal on the top left or scroll down to “Manuscript Submission” to find the link to Editorial Manager.) Authors unable to use Editorial Manager may contact the editorial office to discuss alternatives.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at if you require any assistance.
