- The authors are responsible for the content of the article and the legal consequences thereupon.
- The authors must agree to the publication of the article online and/or in printmedia.
The initial submission should be a complete preprint including figures, tables, references, and appendices. The format of submissions should follow guidelines supplied in the 6th edition of the American Psychologist Association (APA) Publication Manual.
The manuscript should contain, but not be limited to, the following parts: Abstract, Introduction, Theoretical Background, Methodology, Results, and Discussion. Within the Theoretical Background authors should detail the theory upon which they base their findings and interpretations, but an extensive summary of the theory itself should NOT be presented.
If an author is in doubt about the suitability of a potential submission, he/she may contact the editors, and submit a simple outline of what is planned. The editors will provide feedback as to suitability, and will also provide feedback on how the paper might be improved.
