Author Guidelines

Manuscripts submitted for publication as articles should be original contributions that do not appear elsewhere and that are formatted so reviewers are not able to identify the author.

Manuscript length will vary depending upon type of submission (see Focus and Scope), but should be in 12-point Times New Roman font, with a one-inch margin on each side of the page. Contributors should follow the formatting and documentation guidelines in the seventh edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2019).
