Format and Organization:
Manuscripts should be prepared according to the guidelines in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). Double-space all text. Use a 12-point font in Times New Roman or similar style. The title page must be submitted as a separate file marked not for review and should include the title of the manuscript, the names and affiliations of authors, and the name and address of the person to whom reprint requests are to be sent; suggest a shortened version of the title of the manuscript to use as a running head (40 characters or fewer, including spaces). The first page of the body of the manuscript must contain a 100- to 175-word abstract. Maximum length is 25-30 pages, including tables, figures, and references.  

Permissions:
Authors are responsible for all statements made in their work and for obtaining permission from copyright owners to use a lengthy quotation (500 words or more) or to reprint or adapt a table or figure published elsewhere. Authors should write to both author(s) and publisher of such material to request nonexclusive world rights in all languages for use in the article and in future editions of it.

Content:
Do not use new technical words, psychological jargon or slang, or terminology not consistent with the style guidelines in the Publication Manual of the APA. Define any abbreviations or acronyms the first time they are used.

Figures and Tables:
All figures and tables should be numbered separately using Arabic numerals and should be grouped at the end of the manuscript. The approximate placement of figures and tables should be clearly noted within the body of the manuscript. Refer to the Publication Manual of the APA for format of tables. Double-space.

References:
Double-space. Compile references alphabetically (see the Publication Manual of the APA for multiple-author citations and references). Spell out names of journals. Provide page numbers of chapters in edited books. Text citations must correspond accurately to the references in the reference list.
