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 OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • 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.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • For empirical research, submit your manuscript as well as the ethical clearance letter received from your university to do the research you have undertaken. For authors who have not received ethical clearance from their institutions proof of consent from research participants will be required. There may be instances where empirical research has been done but ethical clearance was not required. If this is the case the authors are requested to send in a short note explaining why ethical clearance was not required for their empirical study.
