Op-ed Guidelines: Op-eds should be between 500 and 1,000 words, saved in an MS Word document and submitted to Kyle Thompson Thompson (kyle.thompson@cgu.edu).  Given that these are more opinion based works, you do not need to include a bibliography if you did not cite any material.  But, if you reference or cite materials, please include a bibliography formatted according to Chicago Manual of Style.
