Manuscripts must be submitted electronically to as Microsoft Word documents with “Submission to Different Visions” in the subject line of the email message. Manuscripts must be in English and cannot exceed 7,500 words. Citations must be in the form of endnotes and follow the Chicago style. All quotations must be in English in the main text with the original language in the notes.

Accepted submissions will be published in PDF format.


For the initial submission: authors may include embedded images within the Microsoft Word document or include .jpg images as attachments along with the text of the article. Attached illustrations must be numbered and correspond with figure numbers in the text, and the author must provide a list of illustrations with complete identifying information. Illustrations for both initial and accepted submissions should not exceed 720 x 720 pixels (10 inches, either horizontal or vertical, at 72 dpi). If total file size of the submission exceeds 2 MB, please contact the editor to arrange submitting files in multiple e-mails or via FTP.

For articles accepted for publication: in cases where the author does not hold copyright, he or she is required to obtain permissions, pay any associated fees, and provide documentation of permissions to the editor-in-chief.
