MANUSCRIPTS. All manuscripts should be submitted electronically to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. They should be prepared using a word processing program and saved as a doc or an rtf file. Scholarly articles should range from 2000 to 5000 words while reviews, reports, news, and special items should be less than 2000 words. The editors reserve the right to stylistically edit articles and to reduce the length of reports, news, and special items that they consider unnecessarily long or of little interest to readers. In matters of style, the Chicago Manual of Style, 14th ed. is recommended.
AUTHOR’S AFFILIATIONS AND INTERESTS. Authors should supply, through a footnote on the first page of the title page of the article manuscript, information on their current employment (position, institution/organization, address), educational attainment (degree, discipline, institution), and research interests and experience. If a manuscript has been presented as a paper in a conference, workshop, or symposium, the particulars of the occasion should be footnoted, too.
ABSTRACT. On the first page of the article manuscript between the author’s name and the text, an abstract with a length ranging from 100 to 200 words should be included. It should summarize salient points particularly the objectives, hypotheses, methods, findings and conclusions of the paper, and include key words or phrases.
REFERENCES & FOOTNOTES. All works cited in the text in parenthesis (author, year, page) should be listed at the end of the article in alphabetical order, last name first, following the bibliographic format used in the Chicago Manual of Style. Comments & explanations on textual content should be placed as endnotes before the reference list and indicated consecutively throughout the manuscript by numerical superscripts, and may include literature citations.
ILLUSTRATIONS AND TABLES. Illustrations, which should be kept to a minimum, should be of professional quality and preferably in black and white. Figures and tables should be numbered and captioned/titled. As with other aspects of style, the format of the table should follow that indicated in recent issues of the Journal.
OTHER GUIDELINES AND INFORMATION. An article manuscript will be accepted on the understanding that it has not been submitted elsewhere and will not be until a decision has been rendered by the Journal. The Journal’s decision will be made known as soon as possible after receipt of the manuscript.
