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 text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point Calibri 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 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 manuscript is not to exceed 1,000 words for Personal Essays and 5,000 words (not including abstract or references) for research and case studies.
  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word or RTF file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which are located at the top of this page.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, to ensure the integrity of the blind peer-review for submission to this press, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other.
    The authors of the document have deleted their names from the text, with "Author" and year used in the references, instead of the authors' name, article title, etc. With Microsoft Office documents, author identification should also be removed from the properties for the file (see under File in Word), by clicking on "File" on the main menu of the Microsoft application: File > Save As > Tools (or Options with a Mac) > Security > Remove personal information from file properties on save > Save.
