Submissions Checklist

Before submitting a manuscript, you would ensure that:

  • 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 OpenOffice or Microsoft Word document file format.

  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.

  • The instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed, see below.

 

Ensuring double blind peer review

To ensure the integrity of the double blind peer-review for submission to this journal, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other. This involves the authors, editors, and reviewers (who upload documents as part of their review) checking to see if the following steps have been taken with regard to the text and the file properties:

  1. The authors of the document have deleted their names from the text, with “Author” and year used in the references and footnotes, instead of the authors’ name, article title, etc.

  2. With Microsoft Office documents, author identification should also be removed from the properties for the file.
