Single Paper Submissions

To submit a manuscript, please visit If this is your first time using Editorial Manager, please register first, then proceed with submitting your manuscript. If you have any difficulties with the process, contact the journal at Address all other correspondence to Tani Barlow, Senior Editor, positions, Rice University, MS #42, 6100 Main St., Houston, TX 77251-1892; e-mail: All manuscripts must be double-spaced, including quotations and endnotes, and blinded throughout. You must also submit an abstract and keywords at the time of initial submission.

  • All manuscripts must be typed and double-spaced throughout (including quotations, reference lists and endnotes). 

  • Manuscripts must adhere to the positions style guide 2016 or they will not be considered for publication.
    Style change: from the start of volume 25 (2017), positions' style has changed to in-line citations with full reference list. Endnotes may still be used, but only as indicated in the style guide.

  • Manuscripts must have all evidence of the author's identity removed from the body and the endnotes upon initial submission--that is, send us blind copies of your paper. Author information, including the author's name, will be incorporated into the paper only upon final acceptance. Further, your name should not appear in the name of the files (eg manuscript, figures, permissions log) that you upload to Editorial Manager.

    Please note our new policy on page limits:
    Due to the current conditions in the publishing world, page limits are no longer negotiable and we expect that essays will rarely exceed 30 typeset pages (9,000 words; 60,000 characters with spaces), including references and endnotes.
