Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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 OpenOffice, Microsoft Word or any editable DOC or DOCX file types.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- Generally, the text should be single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than colouring (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end. We recommend APA - http://www.apastyle.org and CMS - http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org style for the article but not limited to the submission. For the accepted paper, the journal will provide the article form for publishing.
