Manuscripts should be 20 to 25 pages in length, double spaced, free of technical language, and prepared according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition (University of Chicago Press, 2010). Since the journal is published in an all-digital format, authors are encouraged to engage digital media and links that support their scholarly analysis and presentation. Authors must, however, maintain a coherent written narrative for submissions, even when the manuscript is supported extensively by other forms of embedded media. The written narrative should be engaging enough to stand alone when printed as a PDF.

GUIDELINES FOR NON-TEXTUAL ELEMENTS
Authors are welcome to include hyperlinks and media files to be embedded within a manuscript. All media files must be submitted for direct hosting on the journal’s servers, and media files should use standard formats that require minimal software/plug-in support for readers. Articles published in HG will be considered static at time of publication; and text, images or other media will not be edited/updated over time. If the manuscript uses/presents data or media that are non-static, a notice should be included at the end of the article to point readers to external sites or servers for further information or updates.
