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.

In order to permit anonymous review, all author's names, their affiliations, and contact information should be removed from the manuscript itself and included in the letter. If the authors wish to request that reviewers know their identity they should leave this information in the manuscript and provide a rationale for the request in the submission letter.

Note: The document being uploaded must not be open on your local computer.

All papers submitted for consideration to be published in the International Journal of Stress Management (IJSM) are automatically reviewed using iThenticate (, a plagiarism checking software. The system compares a submitted manuscript against a database of 25 million scholarly publications, as well as content appearing on the open web, to check submissions to the journal for potential overlap with material previously published in scholarly journals. See section 1.10 of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (sixth edition) for guidance on proper citation of sources and a discussion of plagiarism (presenting work of others as one’s own) and self-plagiarism (presenting one’s own previously published work as new scholarship).
