Submission Preparation Checklist
All submissions must meet the following requirements.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or if it has previously appeared an explanation has been provided by email to the Editor-in-Chief).
- The submission file must be Microsoft Word in a 12 point Garamond font with single spacing. The reference style is the 7th edition of the American Psychological Association Publication Manual and the list must be conformed to Zotero's version of that style-sheet. References in the text and in the alphabetical Reference list at the end of the manuscript (not numbered) must include an active hyperlink to each instance preferably to the DOI expressed as a URL, or to some other functional URL. References to material not available through a URL are to be avoided or must be accounted for in a footnote.
- The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics for emphasis, rather than underlining; and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end. Captions are explanatory and abbreviations are avoided as much as possible. If abbreviations are used, they should be explained in the caption or a clearly readable legend included with the figure, illustration, or table. Axes for graphs and charts are thoroughly and transparently labeled. The font use for all these materials should be Garamond as in the text.
- Because the Open Journal Systems (OJS) software lacks complete transparency to authors and to editors alike, it is requested that submitting authors send a their submission as an email attachment directly to the Editor-in-Chief at [email protected].
