Author Guidelines

Manuscripts should be written in a style that is clear and concise, avoiding technical jargon. A consistent style should be used for both format and references. Preferred manuscript style should conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition). All manuscripts must not exceed 8000 words in length. However, some exceptions can be made after consideration by the editorial team. Titles of the articles should not exceed the length of 15 words and all manuscripts should include an abstract (100-200 words) and a resume (50-100 words). All the above should be submitted through the submission form as Open Office Writer or Microsoft Office Word documents (.odt or .doc file extensions). Authors should also submit 3 to 8 keywords relating to their article's content.

To avoid delays in typesetting, please convert any music-specific symbols and notation (using MusiSync or MS reference font, for instance) to images.

Images, graphics, and tables: Images should be easily readable, clear, and neat; color images are preferred. Except for notation files created with Finale* software, all images should be submitted in the original program in which they were created (JPG, TIFF, or EPS; Microsoft Application Files are acceptable for line art). Any scanned images should be set at 1200 dpi for line art and 300 dpi for colour or greyscale.

All diagrams, images, photographs, and tables should be placed at the end of the manuscript file and numbered in the order they appear in text. Insert callouts for figures and tables on a separate line just after the paragraph where each image or table should appear (example: "[Figure 1 here]").

*Finale files should be saved and submitted as images (JPG, TIFF files).

*No article submission or processing fees will be charged.


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.

  1. 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).
  2. The submission file is in Open Office Writer, Microsoft Word,  RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed at the end of the text. Callouts for figures and tables have inserted on a separate line just after the paragraph where each image or table should appear (example: "[Figure 1 about here]")
  5. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  6. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
  7. The Journal will consider for publication translated papers that have appeared in a different language but the author should clearly state this in Comments to the Editor.
  8. Author(s) has (have) the permission to reprint copyrighted materials: Material taken directly from a copyrighted source must be clearly identified in a source line, and the copyright holder's written permission to reproduce it must be submitted in a separate file along with the manuscript. Obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted material is the author's responsibility, as is payment of any fees the copyright holder may request. Because obtaining reprint permission can be time consuming, it is recommended that authors begin this process as soon as possible. *Note that material created by children (for example, artwork and song lyrics) is considered copyrightable and will require permission from the parent or guardian to reproduce.
