Submission Types

  • Articles: Up to 7500 words, including the body text, acknowledgments, and appendixes. The word limit does not include the title page, abstract, references, captions, tables, and figures. If a submission exceeds the word limit, the author must provide a justification for the length of the manuscript and request the Chief Editor’s approval of the overage. This request may be uploaded in a document with the "Cover Letter" item type or entered in the comment field in the submission system.
  • Reviews: Synthesis of previously published literature that may address successes, failures, and limitations. Requires Review Proposal. For more information, see Review Articles.
  • Comment and Reply Exchange: Comments are written in response to a published article and should be submitted within 2 years of the publication date of the original article (although the editor can waive this limit in extenuating circumstances). The author of the original article has the opportunity to write a Reply. These exchanges are published together. 
  • Corrigenda: The corrigendum article type is available for authors to address errors discovered in already published articles. For more information, see Corrigenda.

  • Perspectives: These short articles can be based on the authors’ experiences, vision, or knowledge of a given field. They can be forward-looking thought pieces or more speculative, summarizing a current problem and providing informed opinions about a proposed solution and calling for new integrative research, and/or highlighting entry points for emerging approaches and techniques. Perspectives differ from regular articles in their forward-looking focus, which can include opinions. This differs from a typical research article that focuses on the authors’ current work. Up to 5000 words but shorter contributions are encouraged. Perspectives require a proposal to the Chief Editor or may be solicited by the journal Editors.
