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 submitting to the ReViews or [Margins] sections, you have first emailed your proposal to [email protected] or [email protected] and had your proposal accepted.
- If text-based, the submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format. The submission is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all images and figures have been uploaded as supplementary files, with captions placed within the text at the appropriate points.
- References follow Chicago Author-Date formatting. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
You have anonymised your document for blind peer review. Do not tick this box unless you have removed your name from your document wherever it may appear, and removed identifying metadata.
- Word for Windows: File > Info > Check for Issues > Inspect Document, check "Document Properties and Personal Information" and click Inspect
