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 TXT document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- 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. If you are submitting media content that is not linked to a specific block of text, add the content as a "Multimedia" item.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
- All images have captions, sources, and if necessary, image permissions.
- The author/s of the document have deleted their names from the text, with "Author" and year used in the references and footnotes, instead of the authors' name, article title, etc. With Microsoft Office documents, author identification has been removed from the properties for the file.
