Submission Preparation Checklist

As 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.
  • 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).
  • The submission is in English and the file is in the journal's Word template.
  • Where available, URLs and DOIs for the references have been provided.

Author Guidelines

  • We ask you to use our article template for your submission. At the very least, use Word styles - so it’s easier for us to reformat the article, if needed.
  • We use the Harvard system for citations, with author and date in parentheses in the running text, and a full bibliographic reference in a separate section at the end of the article.
  • Your manuscript must be accessible: images must have Alt text, tables and lists must be properly formatted, etc. If you use Word, run the Accessibility Checker and fix accessibility issues before submitting your manuscript.

There are no submission or publishing fees in NOPOS. The journal does not have a pre-determined word limit – the editorial team will consider submitted manuscripts on a case-by-case basis.
