Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
All author contact information must be included on the cover sheet or first page of the article, including name, title, affiliation, mailing address, and email address.
The submission files are in Microsoft Office format; 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 within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
Exhibit Presentation: Please organize and present exhibits consistently throughout an article, because we will print them the way they are presented to us. Exhibits can be presented in color, but they must be able to reproduce well in b/w, in other words, lines or bars in charts as well as legend categories need to be able to be distinguished from one another when printed in b/w. The online version of the journal is published in color.
Align numbers correctly by decimal points; use the same number of decimal points for the same sorts of numbers; center headings, columns, and numbers correctly; use the same language in successive appearances; identify any bold-faced or italicized entries in exhibits; and provide any source notes necessary.
Graphs: Graphs will appear the way you submit them. Please be consistent as to fonts, capitalization, and abbreviations in graphs throughout the article, and label all axes and lines in graphs clearly and absolutely consistently.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).
Equations: Please display called-out equations on separate lines, aligned on the exact same indents as the text paragraphs and with no punctuation following. Number equations consecutively throughout the article in Arabic numbers at the right-hand margin. Leave space around operations signs like plus and minus everywhere. It is preferable if manuscripts containing mathematical equations are submitted in Word, using either Equation Editor or MathType.
You may have your article printed in color at a cost of $1200. If you would like to exercise this option, please contact Mitchell Gang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At least one author of each article must be prepared to sign IPR Jourals copyright agreement form—giving us exclusive rights to publish the material in all media—prior to publication.
- Supplemental Material: You may include any supplemental materials you would like to appear on our website along with your article. These may include Tables, Graphs, and Equations. Please follow the same guidelines as those used for manuscript submissions. Please put these materials in a separate file and clearly label it Supplemental Material.
- Please highlight three key takeaways from your article to highlight key findings for the readers.
