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.
  • 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 Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx), OpenOffice Writer (.odt), or Rich Text Format (.rtf) file format.
  • 3. All images, tables, graphs, and charts are submitted as image files (in .jpg, .gif, .png, .tiff, or .pdf format) and are not smaller then 100px x 100px or greater then 1200px x 1200px.  All image files should have a resolution of at least 240dpi. Tables and charts should NOT be created inline using a text editor (such as MS Word); they must be attached image files.
  • 4. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • 5. The text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all images, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • 6. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines below.

Author Guidelines

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). All articles must be in MS Word (.doc or .docx), OpenOffice (.odt), or Rich Text Files (.rtf). They may be accompanied by HTML-accessible figures.

All images and tables should be inserted images into the document, not tables or drawings made in the word processor.  Image files should be included in the body of the text, and also attached individually.

Authors are encouraged to include hyperlinks to books, articles, and websites relevant to their topics.
