Electronic Submission Requirements

Manuscripts should be prepared as MS Word documents in .docx, .doc, or .rtf format and submitted via e-mail attachments.

Figures should be grouped into a single PDF file for review. Do not insert figures within the manuscript (exception: charts created in MS Excel or graphics created in MS Powerpoint may be embedded as MS objects). Do not or submit high-resolution image files until the manuscript has been accepted and you have been instructed by the Managing Editor to do so.

Submit the manuscript and the figure review PDF directly to the Managing Editor (not a subject editor). At the time of submission, authors are required to provide the names and e-mail addresses of at least three persons capable of and potentially willing to review the manuscript. Do not list potential reviewers within the manuscript, as this makes it impossible to assure reviewer anonymity.

All manuscript reviews and revisions are expected to be done using the Track Changes option in MS Word. When returning a revised manuscript, include a summary detailing how the reviewers' feedback was addressed, whether it was accepted, and the rationale if not. Manuscripts with extensive revisions may be accompanied by a "clean" version (all changes accepted) to facilitate proofing by the subject editor prior to forwarding to the Managing Editor for final acceptance.

Figures should be submitted after final acceptance by the Managing Editor as high-resolution (300-dpi minimum) files in TIFF, JPG, PNG, or PDF format (MS objects may be embedded within the manuscript).
