Submission Guidelines

Starting in 2012, the completion of a Submission Checklist that signifies that authors have read this material and agree to adhere to the guidelines is now required. For new submissions, please be sure to include the submission checklist on the first page of your manuscript. Revisions do not need the checklist.

Manuscripts that do not conform to the submission guidelines may be returned without review.

To submit a manuscript to be considered for publication, fill out the form below and submit the information when completed. The last name and first name entered below should be those of the primary/contact author. The file should be named with the author's first initial(s) and lastname (e.g. JDLastname.rtf) and should adhere to the journal’s guidelines in all respects, including file type format.

Anonymous (masked) review is optional. If you desire a masked review, all authors' names, affiliations, and contact information should be removed from the manuscript itself (but included in the cover letter). Footnotes that identify the authors should also be removed from the manuscript, and can be included in the cover letter.
