Author Guidelines

Articles for consideration must be original and may not be published elsewhere in the same form. If an article is accepted, any major editorial concerns will be discussed with the author. The editors may make minor grammatical, spelling, and punctuation changes without discussion with the author.

As the Montreal Architectural Review follows The Chicago Manual of Style, please ensure that your submission adheres to the manual’s guidelines.
