4) Preparing the Submission:

Manuscript preparation

We place very few restrictions on the way in which you prepare your article, and it is not necessary to try to replicate the layout of the journal in your submission. We ask only that you consider your reviewers by supplying your manuscript in a clear, generic and readable layout, and ensure that all relevant sections are included. Our production process will take care of all aspects of formatting and style. The list below can be used as a checklist to ensure that the manuscript has all the information necessary for successful publication.

  • Title page, including title, authors’ names, authors’ affiliations, and contact information*
  • Abstract (maximum 200 words) and 4–6 keywords
  • Text
  • Tables and Figures must be inserted into the body of the manuscript immediately next to their in-text citation
  • Acknowledgments, including details of funding bodies with grant numbers
  • Literature cited (see below for tips on references)

File types
Preferred formats for the text .doc file

Tables
All tables must be cited in the text in the order that they should appear. Tables must be inserted into the body of the manuscript immediately next to their in-text citation.

Figures
All figures must be cited in the text in the order that they should appear. Figures must be inserted into the body of the manuscript immediately next to their in-text citation.

As with the main body of text, the completeness and content of your reference list is more important than the format chosen. A clear and consistent, generic style will assist the accuracy of our production processes and produce the highest quality published work.  A guide to the minimum elements required for successful reference linking appears below.
