Author Guidelines

There is no word limit. Citations should conform to the latest edition of ‘The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation’, or, for non legal papers, to the latest edition of the APA style. All illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end. Manuscripts must include the author's name, address, telephone number, fax (if available), and e-mail address. A submission must include a short abstract (no more than 300 words) of the paper. The journal's editorial board may refuse to review submissions that are poorly formatted and do not follow the guidelines set herein.

 

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 or RTF document file format.
  3. All illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  4. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  5. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
