One electronic copy should be submitted to for review before January 1 for the Spring issue and July 1 for the Fall issue. Papers should be typed, double spaced, and less than 25 pages in length (excluding references, charts, figures); they should conform to the latest edition of the APA style manual. Papers should also include a 150-250 word abstract. No author identification should appear in the text except on the title page, which includes author name(s), address, phone, e-mail, institutional affiliation, and a brief history of the paper. Student authors should place “graduate student” or “undergraduate student” in the upper right hand corner of the title page. All papers should be submitted via email as Microsoft Word attachments.

All submissions are assumed to be original. They should not be published elsewhere or concurrently under review. Previously presented papers should be noted on the title page as to where, under what circumstance (organization, date of presentation, section). The title page should also indicate if the research was funded through any grant program, if any paper is co-authored, or if the author received assistance from others.
