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 file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • 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.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

Paper size: U.S. Letter Margins: 1.0 inch on all sides
Headers and footers: 0.5 inch (left blank except for preliminary pagination)
Line spacing: single
Font: text: 12 point Times New Roman; captions: 11 point Times New Roman
Section headers: Use of bold section headers is encouraged
Paper length: Less than 10,000 words, including citations.
Ask if your manuscript is longer than this.

Figures and Tables
Figures must be provided as separate image files (jpeg or tiff) with a resolution of at least 150 dpi. Both figures and tables must be mentioned in the text (e.g. Fig. 1) before their appearance in the paper. Figure captions appear below the figure in 11-point type with a hanging indent:

Fig. 1. Caption descriptive of the image but not repeating what was said in the text of the paper. Image courtesy of (or by permission of) XXX.

Tables must be carefully formatted in advance by the author. Titles appear above the table in 11-point type.

Citations must be footnotes, numbered sequentially, following the Notes and Bibliography system as detailed by the Chicago Manual of Style.

Each citation must provide name of author/editor, full title of the work, place, publisher, date, and page references.

Titles of books and journals are italicized, not underlined. Archival and manuscript material must contain a full description in the first citation.

Use of abbreviations (e.g. Amer. J. Sci.) is encouraged, as is the short reference format for subsequent citations of a text (e.g. Petterssen, Weather Forecasting, 12.).

Footnotes are not meant to be discursive.
