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 previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- Authors must disclose confidentially to the editorial staff of the journal any potentially overlapping materials, whether already published, or currently in peer review. Submissions previously submitted to other journals have to be declared as such to avoid burdening an already labor-intensive peer review process. It is best if the authors attach clearly labeled copies of any such potentially duplicative work, along with their original submission to the journal. They should include either the previous critique, or a cover letter with the new submission that explains how the authors have modified the manuscript to address the previous (outside) critique.
- The submission file is in MS-Word format and sent through the online submission system.
- The text and references meet the formatting requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines. We strongly suggest that you use the template for preparing your paper.
Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the authorities responsible where the work was carried out. However, we accept submissions that have previously appeared on preprint servers (for example: arXiv, bioRxiv, Nature Precedings, Philica, Social Science Research Network, and Vixra); have previously been presented at conferences; or have previously appeared in other “non-journal” venues (for example: blogs or posters). Authors are responsible for updating the archived preprint with the journal reference (including DOI) and a link to the published articles on the appropriate journal website upon publication.
