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, all authors—if they are not already members—will be requested to join the Canadian Association of Slavists when they submit their manuscript.

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 Only unpublished manuscripts that are not under consideration by another journal will be considered.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 three outside appraisers in a process to ensure complete anonymity. Decision on publication normally takes approximately four months. The editor assumes 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 exactly.

Manuscripts must be submitted electronically using the Editorial Manager system. The 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.

In addition, the Editorial Manager can be found on the “Instructions to Authors” section of the above 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.  Please do not hesitate to contact us at if you require any assistance.
