EMAIL MANUSCRIPTS TO THE TWO ADDRESSES:
MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION AND STYLE
An article must be in English and may not exceed 6,000 words or roughly thirty-five double- spaced pages in 12-point font (including main text, footnotes, tables, and figure captions). The entire manuscript—including footnotes, tables, and references— should be double-spaced and numbered consecutively.
Our journals follow a double-blind peer review process, so authors should avoid putting their names in headers or footers and avoid any references to themselves in the body or the endnotes that might betray their identity to referees. Selected citations of the author’s well known published work may be included only if the absence of such citations would be conspicuous. Submissions should not include acknowledgments; these can be added later if the manuscript is accepted.
All submissions must include a 150-word abstract, 3-5 relevant keywords, and a cover email or letter that includes the author’s name, academic discipline and institutional affiliation (if any), mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, and competing interest declaration.
