Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- The word limit for articles is 6000 words. This does not include references or tables.
- Blind Review: Your peer-review article will be automatically rejected if your submission is not blind review ready. Check the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed. If using Google Docs please file/make a copy and then remove identifiers—name, self-references. Export as either Word or pdf then follow the relevant file type instructions as a double check.
