Submitting to the Journal

Important: Make sure the document you submit does not include any of the following:

  • Author names
  • Author contact information
  • Acknowledgements
  • Footnotes
  • Page numbers
  • Abstract
  • Title page

These will be added automatically after publication. They must not be in your submission for formatting reasons, and so that peer review can be double blind (peer reviewers don't know who authors are, and vice-versa).


If you have further questions about submitting to the journal, contact the editors.

What happens to my submission?

  • When you submit your article, the editors receive it on the back end of the journal.
  • The editors will assign someone to peer-review your paper. This will be double-blind: you won't know who is reviewing your paper, and they will not know whose they are reviewing.
  • After the peer-review is complete, the editors will send you the results.
  • You may have some revisions to your paper based on the peer-review. You will have time to do this.
  • Once you submit your revisions, the editors may make some final changes and do some copy-editing.
  • Your article will be published in an issue!
