Author Guidelines

Manuscripts should be formatted as anonymised word documents, double spaced in 12pt type with numbered pages to aid reviewers in making comments.  Images, figures and tables, where used, should be in the body of the text and appropriately numbered.  Footnotes rather than endnotes should be used.  We do not enforce a particular citation style, recognising that our diverse authors prefer to make use of a standard referencing format, such as Harvard or APA that is in common usage in their professional or academic context. Please make sure that it is used consistently in your paper.

 

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 OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is double-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.
  5. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
