Input Guidelines

Our online submission process requires that manuscripts be submitted in separate stages in order to ensure the anonymity of the review process and to enable appropriate formatting. The main text must be submitted as a stand-alone file (in Microsoft Word, TeX, or RTF) without a title page, abstract, page numbers, or other headers or footers. Tables and figures should be included in-line with text, not at the end or as separate files. The title, abstract, and author information should be input according to the directions on the site. Abstracts (400 words or less) should be submitted in plain text and should not include information identifying the author(s) or their institutional affiliations. All submissions, except for book reviews, must include an abstract before they will be considered for review.  You can download a copy of our style guide and additional APA guidelines here.
