Submissions & Format

Note: The format requirements for manuscripts submitted for review may differ from the final format of a published manuscript.  Below are the directions for submitting manuscripts for review.  


It is important to follow format guidelines.  Failure to follow format guidelines will result in the manuscript not being reviewed.  

  • Your manuscript should be single-spaced. The first page is the only page that includes a one-column format.  For submission purposes, the first page should only include the following in 12 font unless otherwise noted: Title of manuscript (22 font) author(s), abstract, keywords, and about the authors. "About the authors" should only include 2-4 lines about each author (ex: John or Jane Doe is an Associate Professor at....). It's important to note that none of the body of the manuscript will be placed on the first page (for review purposes). After the first page (one-column format), the pages that follow should be in two-column format. Graphs, tables, charts or pictures are the only exception within the body of the manuscript that may be placed in an one-column format. However, if spacing for graphs, tables, charts or pictures is more appropriate in a two-column format, this can be allowed (at the discretion of the editor). Your submitted manuscript  should be unnumbered and left-adjusted between the margins. Your paper should be in 12 point font except for the title of the manuscript which is in 22 font (New Times Roman is preferred).  Acknowledgements: You may include acknowledgements at the end of the body of the paper before the references.


  • Abstracts are listed on the first page after the manuscript title (22 font) and authors names.  Abstracts should be 75-150 words in length. Skip 2 lines before and after abstract .
  • After the abstract:   List your keywords and "about the authors".  Once you do this, you are finished with the first page.  The body of the manuscript will begin on page 2.


Submitted manuscripts should only use sectional headings. Do not use footers or headers.  Leave 1 line blank above and 1 line blank below the headings. If a heading is directly followed by a subheading leave a blank line between the heading and subheading.  As previously mentioned, the body of the document should be left-justified.

Submissions should not have any numbers, headers, or footers.
