Intelligencer Submission Guidelines

2.  On average, blog posts should be 500-750 words.  We can include longer or shorter pieces, but with longer pieces, readership drops.

3.  The house style follows the Chicago Manual of Style.

4.  The audience is primarily British Studies scholars.  However, we encourage authors to write for an educated, non-specialist audience.  The prose should be clear and jargon-free whenever possible.  

5.  Any images need to be in the public domain or have copyright clearance.  Images should be sent as .jpg, tiff, or png files.

6.  Submissions to the Intelligencer blog give the NACBS the perpetual right to publish the post with attribution to the author.  By default, authors retain copyright.  However, if authors prefer, they may designate a Creative Commons license for their work.  To choose a license, click here:
