Intégrité Submission Guidelines

Integrite (pronounced IN tay gri tay) is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal on the integration of Christian faith and higher learning. Founded in the fall of2002 with the Institutional Renewal Grant from the Rhodes Consultation on the Future of the Church-Related College, it is published both online and in print copy.

Interested Christian scholars are encouraged to submit academic articles (15-25 pages double spaced),short essays on faith and learning (8-12 pages double spaced), book reviews (4-8 pages double spaced), and poetry (5-15 poems single spaced) for consideration. Along with your work, we need an author bio of 100-125 words written in third person and in complete sentences. Manuscripts should be sent as e-mail attachments (Microsoft Word format) to the editor, John J. Han, at Due dates are March 1 for inclusion in the spring issue and September 1for inclusion in the fall issue.

Articles should examine historical, theological, philosophical, cultural, and/or pedagogical issues relatedto faith-learning integration.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • the current state and/or future of the church-related college
  • history of Christian liberal arts education
  • Christianity and contemporary culture
  • a Christian perspective on multiculturalism and diversity
  • service learning
  • academic freedom in a Christian context
  • implementation of Christian truths in academic disciplines
  • Christian education in the non-Western world
  • global

Articles must engage in faith-learning issues or controversies in a scholarly, critical manner. We generallydo not consider manuscripts that are merely factual, devotional, or sermonic. Articles are expected

to be research-based but must focus on the author’s original thought. We also do not consider articles that use more than twenty-five secondary sources; merely present other scholars’ opinions without developingextended, thoughtful analysis; and/or use excessive endnotes. Direct quotations, especially lengthy ones,should be used sparingly.

Considering that most Integrite readers are Christian scholars and educators not necessarily having expertise on multiple disciplines, articles, short essays, and book reviews must be written in concise, precise, and easy-to-understand style. Writers are recommended to follow what William Strunk, Jr., andE.B. White suggest in The Elements of Style: use definite, specific, concrete language; omit needless words; avoid a succession of loose sentences; write in a way that comes naturally; and avoid fancy words.

For citation style, refer to the current edition of MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers.Articles and short essays should include in-text citations in parentheses, a list of endnotes (if applicable),and an alphabetical listing of works cited at the end of the article. Enter endnotes manually instead ofusing the “Insert Endnote” function in a word-processing program. Book reviews need only page numbersin parentheses after direct quotations.
