When to Submit
Submissions for the next publication of MAR are due by midnight on Monday, February 13th, 2023
What to Submit
Papers submitted can be the product of work completed for classes, independent studies, or other independent research among other projects as affiliated with a member of the Muhlenberg faculty. Essays may be written in any language with the understanding that your work must be translated into English if it is accepted for publication.
As well as traditional papers, podcast episodes created for Muhlenberg classes can be submitted. The podcast must not exceed twenty minutes. If an episode is accepted for publication, you will be asked to submit a transcript.
Any submitted work must be under 5000 words to be eligible for acceptance. This word count does not include footnotes or works cited.
You may submit a maximum of two works with the understanding that they must be from separate classes.
If accepted, you will be asked to submit a 200 word abstract summarizing the findings or argument of your paper/podcast.
How to Submit
Please submit papers as a Word file (.docx), double-spaced and in Times New Roman 12pt font via email (email@example.com). Please submit podcast episodes as an MP3 file via email.
Submission files should be labeled with your work’s title (i.e. “Title– Subtitle.docx”). Include in the email’s subject line: your name, the title, and the course number (ex. ENG247-00).
The name of the writer cannot appear in the Word file. The name may only appear in the subject line and email address.
Within the email, input the name of the professor for whom the work was completed so they can be contacted to verify the originality and overall quality.
You must also include in the email the discipline/perspective of your work (ex. history, biology, psychology).
If your submission was created for a course involving multiple disciplines, such as an IL or Honors Program course, please list the major disciplines present in the paper.
If your submission includes graphs or pictures, they must be rendered in high contrast colors such that they can be comprehensible when printed in grayscale.
