  1. All manuscripts must be submitted formatted for 8.5” by 11” (or A4) paper, with one-inch (or 2.5-cm) margins on all sides.  A 12-point font (in Times New Roman with double spacing) must be used for the main text, with a 10-point font and 1.5 spacing for footnotes.  Tables and figures must be in a 10-point font with 1.5 spacing unless clarity requires a deviation. The pages must be numbered and are limited to a maximum of 35, inclusive of all material that is intended to be published (as opposed to any appendices, etc., that may be posted on the author(s)’ website).

  1. Authors are advised to limit appendices to 3-4 pages.  However, if authors wish to make more extended appendices available from their own website, a link should be provided in the manuscript.
  1. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in both PDF and Word formatto .  Only one file of each format is to be submitted, i.e., all text, tables, figures, etc., are to be incorporated in the file rather than in separate files.  Articles in other formats will not be considered.
  1. Footnotes must be brief and be placed at the bottom of the relevant page.
