Submission Checklist

Note to all authors:
In line with initatives to support greener publishing strategies, we are no longer physically printing both our Fall and Spring Issues. We continue to publish and promote our issues online.

For detailed information on submission categories and formatting guidelines, please visit our Guide to Authors page.
