Authors may include a short endnote stating that the lengthy material is available, or may add an appendix. If an appendix is used, the reference in the text should read, for example: “(See Appendix A for complete information).” If, after an endnote occurs, it is later mentioned, use a parenthetical note “(see note 3),” rather than the superscript number.
Additional Elements for Submission Contact Information Include a cover page separate from the main file providing authorship, institutional affiliation, acknowledgements, and the date of submission of the article. Please also provide full contact information for the corresponding author(s).
Abstract and Keywords Your abstract must be fewer than 200 words and written in the language of the paper. It should be a brief summary of the key points of the article, without the use of phrases such as “In this article…”; “The author…”; “The article is about….” Provide three to six keywords positioned a few spaces beneath your abstract. The text body should then follow on a separate page. Using keywords will enhance discoverability through CJCCJOnline, search engines, and databases.
Letters of Permission Provide a copy of permission to use copyrighted material, if applicable. Please note that failure to include letters of permission to use copyrighted material will, at the very least, delay the publication of the manuscript until the letters of permission have been received by the University of Toronto Press.
Tables and Figures Tables and figures should not be embedded in the text. Instead, they should appear on a separate page at the end of the manuscript with each table and figure numbered consecutively in the order in which they are mentioned in the text. In the text, indicate exactly where each table and figure belongs. Use the phrase, “Table/Figure  about here” in the places where your table or figure should appear in the final copy.
Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice Submission Guidelines Page 6 Upon acceptance of the article for publication, authors will be required to provide tables and illustrations in a form suitable for typesetting.
Tables Tables should be prepared in Word (not Excel) using the Tables function (i.e., not created manually using drawn lines, tabs or spaces). Each table must include a descriptive title and headings to columns. Gather general footnotes to tables as “Note:” or “Notes:”, and use a, b, c, etc., for specific footnotes. Table footnotes are appended only to a specific table. Asterisks * and/or ** indicate significance at the 5 percent and 1 percent levels, respectively.
At the stage of typesetting, tables should be put into a Word file separate from the file containing the text of the article (one file for all tables).
Figures The typesetting stage requires that illustrations be provided without their captions, either in high-quality hard copy (e.g., a glossy photograph, preferably black and white) or as a highresolution graphics file (one file per illustration).
A separate Word file should contain the captions for all illustrations.
TIFF and EPS are the preferred graphics file formats; high-resolution JPEG is also accepted.
For charts and line drawings (but not photographs), PDF or Excel files are accepted; each chart must be in a separate file.
Producing tables, graphs, and illustrations is costly and authors are asked to minimize their use without sacrificing clarity.
Please note that the University of Toronto Press can present colour images in the online version of CJCCJOnline at no cost to the author. Video clips illustrating your thesis, such as this one, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3T6vuoQdY6Q&feature=related, can also be featured on CJCCJOnline.
Captions Please provide a separate Word file of all captions for tables and figures.
Queries “How to Alienate Your Editor: A Practical Guide for Established Authors,” written by Stephen K.
Donovan and published in the Journal of Scholarly Publishing, is an excellent article on classic mistakes made during the submission process. Also useful is “Surviving Referees’ Reports," written by Brian Martin and also published in Journal of Scholarly Publishing.
