This document provides details on typesetting and layout requirements pertaining to your final manuscript submission. Authors are responsible for correctly formatting, preparing, and copyediting their manuscripts for publication. The editors reserve the right to reject submissions that fail to follow these guidelines.
Submit your manuscript—including tables, figures, appendices, etc.—as a single file (Word, RTF, or PDF files are accepted). The page size is 8.5 x 11-inches. All margins (left, right, top and bottom) are 1.5 inches (3.8 cm), including on tables and figures. Use a single column layout with both left and right margins justified. Use 12 point Times New Roman font for the body and 10 point Times New Roman for footnotes. If the article is divided into sections, heading titles are distinguished from the main body text by a bold font. Do not use colored fonts, symbols, and/or notations in unusual fonts.
Single space all your text. Do not insert extra space between paragraphs of text with the exception of indented quotations, theorems, propositions, special remarks, etc. These should be set off from the surrounding text by additional space above and below. Paragraphs are indented .5 inches and indented quotes are indented .5 inches on both sides. Footnotes should be single spaced without additional space(s) between footnotes. Footnote numbers or symbols in the text must follow, rather than precede, punctuation at the end of the sentence. There should be no more than one footnote per sentence. Combine more than one into a single footnote. There is no bibliography so footnotes should be complete. Follow the current edition of The Chicago Manual of Style.
Do not include footers, headers, or page numbers. These will be added by the editors. If images are included, use high-resolution figures, preferably encoded as encapsulated PostScript (eps). Tables and figures should appear in the document near where they are referenced in the text. Large tables or figures should be put on pages by themselves. Avoid the use of overly small type in tables. In no case should tables or figures be in a separate document or file. All tables and figures must fit within 1.5 inch margins on all sides (top, bottom, left and right) in both portrait and landscape view.
If you have any questions please contact the editors.
