Preparing Your Manuscript
Follow these steps to prepare and submit your paper. Before starting consider using our optional manuscript template, and if English is not your native language we recommend having your paper proof-read before submission. We offer a professional English editing service. Specify any competing peer reviewers to exclude in your cover letter. We do not accept recommendations of peer reviewers by authors. Standard services provided to authors are described here.
Select a journal, referring to the journal's About page for information on its aims and scope and applicable article processing fee. You will be asked to confirm your awareness of the fee during the submission process. Optionally, if you aren't sure of the best journal for your paper consider using our complimentary Ask an Editor in Chief service.
Submit your paper to our online editorial management system following the instructions given below.
