Because the nature of this journal focuses on innovation, no specific page limitations have been set; however, documents must be written with clarity and efficiency in mind.

Text citations and references should follow current APA guidelines. The format of manuscripts should adhere to the following outline:

  • e-mail address (1st author only)
  • Author Biography (150 word limit)

MANUSCRIPT OUTLINE AND FORMAT: (Times New Roman or similar font please. For additional help, go to the example for authors page. We encourage these specific guidelines as a way to provide some sense of uniformity to our readers and contributors, but we do not wish to exclude potentially innovative ideas based on these formatting ideals.
