Publication Opportunity

Based on the symposium’s focus on the scholarship of teaching and learning, participants’ papers will receive consideration for publication in a special guest edited issue of Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching (SMART), scheduled for publication in late 2024 or 2025. All submissions will receive blind external review by SMART.  Please submit your edited presentations to Lainie Pomerleau or Richard Utz by February 15, 2024, following the following SMART guidelines:

“To ensure interdisciplinary consistency for SMART, manuscripts should be double-spaced, formatted according to the most recent edition of The Chicago Manual of Style, and sent electronically to the managing editor of SMART at the address below. Papers should include the author’s name, title, institution, and mailing address (for contact purposes and for sending final proofs and publication agreements), but without embedded comments from other reviewers. Once received, papers will be sent blind to reviewers. Submissions vary greatly in length but are typically 2,500  to 3,000 words. Images in JPEG or TIF format are acceptable. Discursive notes should be held to a minimum to facilitate an easily readable text. Endnotes are preferred over footnotes, and a separate bibliography is not necessary if all information about texts and sources is included in the endnotes. American English is preferred to British English, including spelling and placement of punctuation. The concept of intellectual rigor requires that information of the type often relegated to notes be integrated with the main discussion, while the practical needs of teachers require that information about texts and sources appropriate to students at all levels be included in the text or endnotes. In balancing the need for documentation with that for practicality, we urge your cooperation and assistance.”
