Author Guidelines

Submission is not open; prospective authors will be invited by an editor to submit a manuscript. 

Once invited, authors are encouraged to consult the instructions here  for filing their metadata and uploading their manuscripts.

We normally prefer submissions in LaTeX; authors will be supplied with sty and bst files by the issue editor. Alternatively, we can accept submission in Word, in which case a Word document template will normally be provided. 

Your reference list must include DOI-numbers for those references that have them. You can use this resource - - to find DOI-numbers for your references. (Your reference management software may also have functionality to search for DOIs.)

Submissions should be anonymized for double-blind review. 

A manuscript should include a 200 word abstract and be accompanied by about three to five keywords. Unless the issue editor specifies otherwise, we encourage authors not to exceed 30 pages in manuscript length.

Authors will not be charged publication fees.
