Guide for Authors

Information for Authors

Reports of original research have priority over other types of articles. However, other types of articles, short reports of replications or of failures to replicate previously reported results are given serious consideration. Comments on articles published in the journal are also taken into consideration.

Authors should prepare manuscripts according to the Publication Manual of the APA. Manuscripts should be typed double-spaced, and with 3.5 centimeter margins on each side. Major manuscripts (but not brief reports) must be accompanied by an abstract of 200-250 words, which is typed, on a separate page. Should your manuscript be accepted for publication, this will greatly expedite editorial composition. It is suggested that authors keep a copy of the manuscript to guard against loss.

The editorial review process is conducted in a manner as anonymous as possible.

The authors are prohibited from submitting the same manuscript for concurrent consideration to two or more publications. It is also prohibited to publish as original data, data that have been previously published. The authors are also responsible not to submit any manuscript that has already been published in whole or substantial part elsewhere.
