- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another press for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor). Submission for an ebook version of printed books which already have an ISBN will require written permission.
- The text is single-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.
- Submitted manuscripts are in MS Word files, including pictures, tables, and other appendices. Adobe PDF formatted files are allowed if already the final (print) version.
