Dear Author,

In this document, following this brief introduction, you will find a sample paper that will show you how your paper should look like in its final stage.

We are excited and proud that you have chosen to work with us.  In order for this to be a pleasant working relationship for all parties involved, we have prepared this document sample that shows you how your paper should be formatted.

Please note that although we are very interested in publishing your work, nevertheless you will have to submit your paper properly formatted and with endnotes that respect the Chicago Manual of Style. http://www.leoalmanac.org/lea-referencing-style/

Please note that if your paper does not respect the guidelines (http://www.leoalmanac.org/guidelines-for-common-mistakes/), we will ask you to comply with them.

We understand that every journal has a different style and that your first submission may not wholly respect the guidelines. Nevertheless, once we accept your paper we will expect full compliance, particularly when submitting to a prestigious body like LEA, which is academically supported by NYU and Goldsmiths College.

Once we have accepted your paper the editors will make a formal review of structure – if your paper does not comply we will ask you to go through this document once again and ensure that your paper is in full compliance, before making comments on its content.

If, at any point of this process, your lack of response and compliance will risk delaying the publication deadline of the whole issue, we reserve the right to withdraw the offer of publishing with us.

We hope that you understand that there are many authors whose academic careers are dependent upon timely publication of their papers.

With kind regards,

The Editor in Chief
