Submission Guidelines

Manuscript Submission
Manuscripts should be submitted via the following form. The file format should be in a .doc or .docx version (e.g., Microsoft Word) instead of .pdf, .jpeg, etc. All reviews are done anonymously. Submitted manuscripts should be de-identified; that is all clues to authors' identities must be eliminated, including any document summary information created by word processing software. Authors' names, contact information, and affiliations must be provided on a separate document (see also "checklist" below).
