Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- Author(s) is currently an undergraduate or graduate student at a Canadian university or college.
- 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 text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point Times New Roman 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.
- The submission is a minimum of 2500 words and does not exceed 8500 words in total length (including the bibliography).
- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
- All identifying information (name, school affliation, student number, etc.) have been removed from the submission.
- The submission abides by the academic integrity standards of York University.
- All material within the submission has been properly cited in according to the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA).
- The submission takes place before the call for papers deadline.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
The submission is the only submission made by this author, unless they are co-authors on another submission. To be clear, an individual author may not solo-author more than one submission. They may submit one solo-authored submission and one co-authored submission for an absolute maximum of two submissions. Similarly, they may not submit more than one co-authored submission with the same co-author(s).
Note: This requirement is per issue (or per call for papers). Authors are welcome and encouraged to submit to multiple issues of this journal.
