Prepare manuscripts according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), 6th edition. All parts of the manuscript should be double-spaced, with margins of at least one inch on all sides. Number manuscript pages consecutively throughout the paper. Authors should also supply a shortened version of the title suitable for the running head, not exceeding 50 character spaces. Except for brief case submissions, each article should be summarized in an abstract of not more than 100 words. Avoid abbreviations, diagrams, and reference to the text in the abstract. List three to five keywords for database indexing at the bottom of the abstract page.
To facilitate anonymous review, prepare the manuscript without identifying information. The title should appear on the first page of the manuscript, followed by the abstract and full text. A separate cover page must contain title, authorship, and an introductory footnote with professional titles and mailing addresses of the authors and any statements of credit or research support. Every effort should be made by the authors to see that the manuscript itself contains no clues to their identities.
