Submission Preparation Checklist
As 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 published previously - nor is it submitted elsewhere (special rules for papers for conference special issues)
- The submission file is in MS Word or PDF
- URLs for all references - including journal articles - have been provided - unless not available.
- The text is with single line spacing, does not use columns, does not use underlining (except with URLs ), and illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
- Full names of all authors are included in the manuscript (first, middle and last names) - and will be entered into the electronic submission system in the next steps. Failure to enter the names into to the electronic submission system will mean that names will not be harvested for databases. There will be no second chance to add authors.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, found below.
- I will suggest two to four independent reviewers in the format name, affiliation, e-mail - and preferably a link to a scopus or Orcid account. These will be entered in the box "Comment to the editor" at the bottom of this page
- If the manuscript belongs to a special issue, then I will note this in the box "Comment to the editor" at the bottom of this page. If the author is a JPSC member, then this should be noted also
