Author Guidelines

Please email for the Google Form link for submissions. DO NOT SUBMIT THROUGH THE PERCEPTIONS WEBSITE.

TUHSSA does not prescribe a particular citation format for submissions, however, reviewers have the most experience with the Chicago Manual of Style and MLA, though it is preferred that submissions be submitted in Chicago style, as works selected for publication will be converted to Chicago style with endnotes.

Works submitted should include original research and thought and not simply be a brief analysis, they should be substantive and deeply engage the topic at hand. Successful submissions should consult several reliable scholarly sources. Works should be between 7 and 20 pages in length. Longer works may be accepted upon review on a case-by-case basis. TUHSSA only accepts submissions from undergraduate students at Temple University in Philadelphia.
