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.
  • 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).
  • The submission file is in PDF file format.
  • Where available, DOIs for the references have been provided.
  • All illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

How to submit a paper ?
In order to process your submission and to start the peer review process, please remove all identifying information and upload your manuscript in PDF file format here.
Examples of identifying information are: your name, the name(S) of your coauthor(s), affiliation and self citations.

In the case of self citations we suggest to remove phrases that contain possessive pronouns, such as, "in our previous work". Please replace possessive phrases with neutral expressions, such as "prior research indicates".
Be assured that before sending out your manuscript for review, we will also make sure that any identifying meta-data are removed.

What about the formatting ?
Accepted manuscripts, whether with major or minor revisions, should be formatted by the author. That means, don't worry about the format for the submission. Only once the paper is accepted, formatting becomes an issue.

Why do we not worry about style guides at this point? 
It's because reviews are based on content not on appearances. There is no point in burdening the authors with formatting tasks unless a paper is accepted.
