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 submission has not been previously published partially or completely, nor has it been submitted for consideration to another journal (otherwise an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in an editable format, such as OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF.
- References must be accompanied by their corresponding DOI, where available.
- The manuscript is submitted in its optimal condition, to the best of the author(s)'s knowledge, so that no substantial amendments will need to be done after the manuscript has been accepted for publication, other than those suggested by reviewers or deemed necessary by the editors.
The participants in my study were duly informed of all the details of the study and the possible risks, and voluntarily provided me with duly signed informed consent to participate in the study, when applicable.
- When applicable, there is a note in my Method section stating that to collect these data authors complied with all the applicable legal obligations for their countries, including the gathering of approval from institutional review boards (IRB), informing participants of the details and risks of the study and securing participants' consent.
- 12-point font is used; italics are used rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are duly labeled within the text at the appropriate place.
- The text adheres to the style-related and referencing requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines (see below).
- Proper names of people or institutions that might reveal the author's identity have been erased or replaced by a pseudonym (in the case of an institution), or by the word "Author" (in the case of citations and references), in order to ensure a blind review.
- The abstract does not exceed 200 words and follows the structure proposed by the APA for that type of article.
