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.
  • 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.
  • Use the provided layout.

Author Guidelines

When submitting a manuscript, the standardization criteria in the files available on the Journal’s website must be considered. In addition, the authors must:

  • Maintain anonymity, including possible references that should be suppressed;
  • Orthography should be consistent with a standard variety of English;
  • Send the manuscript containing up to 8.000 words;
  • Non-English terms and quotes should be translated;
  • Translate the abstract and the keywords into a second language;
  • Include an abstract (approximately 300 words) and 5 keywords;
  • Emphasised words should be italicized;
  • “Double quotation” marks should be used for quotes. Single quotation marks should be used for “a ‘quote’ within a quote”;

  • Ensure manuscript compliance with Open Science and good practices;
  • Indicate whether the manuscript has been submitted to the Preprints system and is in agreement with the Open Peer Review Process;
