Author Guidelines

All submissions should follow APA style (Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition, 2010). An abstract of 250-300 words or less, summarizing the main points of the article, should accompany the manuscript. The authors' names, affiliations, telephone numbers, and email addresses should appear on a separate title page, and only on this page, to ensure anonymity in the review process. The manuscript must be in Microsoft Word document format. Manuscripts should be double-spaced, with wide margins and pages numbered consequently. All tables and camera-ready figures should be included within the same document file as the rest of the manuscript.

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.

  1. 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).
  2. The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is single-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.
  5. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  6. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
