- Articles: Up to 7500 words (approximately 26 double-spaced pages), 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.
- Expedited Contributions:
Up to 2500 words (abstract, references, figure captions list, tables, and figures do not count toward the length limit). No more than a combined total of 6 tables and figures. No length waivers can be requested for this submission type. Multipart papers are not allowed. The peer-review and production/editing processes are accelerated. Author revisions are due within 4 weeks. The expected publication time is 4–7 weeks after final acceptance. If the paper grows beyond the maximum length or figure/table criteria during review and revision, the editor will decide if it remains an expedited contribution or becomes a regular article. Also, if the paper requires a second round of reviews, it will be considered a regular article.
- 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.
