Submission Preparation Checklist

As 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.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, and is not currently before another journal or publication for consideration (or an explanation has been provided below in Comments to the Editor).
  2. Where possible, all author information (name of author, instructor, and course) has been removed from the text. See Ensuring a Blind Review for more details.

  3. The submission file is in rich text (.rtf) or Microsoft Word 2003-2007 (.doc) file format, with all metadata (including the name of the author) removed.
  4. The text is double-spaced; uses a standard 12-point font; uses standard page margins and indentations; uses italics rather than underlining for emphasis; and has no other extraneous formatting, such as page headers or coloured text.
  5. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  6. Where available, URLs for references have been provided, and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
