3. References

Style and Language

Juxtaposition now uses the Nature referencing style. Please visit Nature’s website to familiarize yourself with these elements prior to submission. All references used in the article must be listed numerically in order of appearance in a separate section entitled “References” at the end of the article. Within the article, references (and notes) should be cited as superscripted numbers. Consider using softwares like Zotero or EndNote to format a properly referenced piece in an automated fashion. For grammar and spelling, Juxtaposition favours formats most commonly used in Canadian English. If you have any questions, please contact the Managing Editor with questions via our e-mail: juxtaposition.ezine@utoronto.ca

Acceptable References

Acceptable references include both primary and secondary sources. Examples of acceptable primary sources are research papers, books, personal interviews, photographs and unpublished data. Examples of acceptable secondary sources are reputable newspapers and magazines. Credible, official and and/or academic electronic resources are welcome. Unpublished reports or papers or personal correspondence (e-mail) must be stated in the text to account for potential conflicts of interest, and also must be cited.

Acknowledging Sources and Avoiding Plagiarism

While Juxtaposition is not an academic journal and submissions are not scholarly in nature, sources and direct quotations must still be acknowledged. The long-standing and well-known approaches to avoiding plagiarism should be kept in mind. The editors reserve the right to exclude any article that includes plagiarized material.
