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, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- If the manuscript was prepared by more than one person, contributions of each person are clearly spelled out in a note added at the end of the document, before the list of citations.
- If you have an ORCID ID, please add this to your author profile. If you do not yet have an ORCID ID, we encourage you to create one.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
- Where available, DOIs for references have been provided. Web-only references include URLs and date of access.
Submissions for Voices of Experience, Hypothesis Failure, Methods Moment, and Research Articles must be anonymized. Ensure the the following elements of your uploaded file(s) have no identifying information:
Anonymizing Files - In a Word document or other document, go to FILE / INFO / INSPECT. Click on CHECK FOR ISSUES. REMOVE ALL and then REINSPECT.
If you are using Microsoft 365, sign out of your account and then double check to make sure the submission contains no identifying information.
MS Word or other format document file owner information (File/Info/Author and /Modified by).
Name your files with the title (abbreviated if necessary) of your submission, not your name. If you have additional files to submit,ensure that your name is not part of the file name.
If any of the above items have not been completed, we’ll ask you to make these changes and resubmit.
- The submission file must be in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format. Do not submit PDFs.
