Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • The instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.

Author Guidelines

Manuscripts, not exceeding 10,000 words, should be typed double-spaced (including quotations, endnotes, and references) on standard quarto paper (8 1/2" x 11"), with ample margins. The author's name and affiliation should appear on a separate cover page, and only on this page, to ensure anonymity in the reviewing process. Include, also on separate pages, an abstract of l00-200 words, and a short biographical profile of the author (and all co-authors, if any). The APA Style Manual (7th edition) should be followed.

The list of references should be arranged alphabetically by authors' last names, and placed at the end of the manuscript. Reference citations are not to be used as footnotes.

Endnotes for the purpose of clarifying the text are permitted and should be denoted by superscript numbers in the text. The numbered endnotes should be typed double-spaced and placed before the list of references.

Tables and figures should be numbered, captioned, and inserted at appropriate points in the text.
