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 Microsoft Word, RTF, or OpenOffice document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses). All figure/illustration legends and all tables are placed at the end, rather than within the text.
    Illustrations and figures are placed separately in another document.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.

Author Guidelines

IMPORTANT. The journal’s expenses for providing immediate, permanent, free online access to the full text of research articles are recovered partly from article-processing charges. 

Currently many research funding agencies not only allow these expenses to be paid from their grants, but also encourage open access publication. The journal’s standard processing fee is 800.00 €. If a manuscript requires extensive editorial work, an extra charge may be requested. The acceptance of a paper, however, will not depend on the authors’ ability to pay these charges. Individual waiver requests must be done during the submission process and will be considered on a case-to-case basis. 

For the complete author guidelines, read the following document.
