Before you submit your article, make sure that it

  • is free of grammatical errors and spelling mistakes*

Submissions come in four forms:

  1. Articles (1,500 -10,000 words)
  2. Responses to previously published articles either in our journal or another prominent publication. (1,500 – 5,000 words)
  3. Book Reviews (1,000 – 4,000 words)
  4. Letters to the Editor (500 – 2,000 words)

Please note in the subject line of your email which of the four above you are submitting.

Due to possible copyright violations we ask that you not publish articles published by our journal elsewhere without our express permission.
