All accepted manuscripts, artwork, and photographs become the property of the publisher.

All parts of the manuscript should be typewritten, double-spaced, with margins of at least one inch on all sides. Number manuscript pages consecutively throughout the paper. Authors should also supply a shortened version of the title suitable for the running head, not exceeding 50 character spaces. Each article should be summarized in an abstract of not more that 100 words. Avoid abbreviations, diagrams, and reference to the text.

Figures, tables, and references should conform to the style of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 5th ed., 2001, available from the American Psychological Association, 750 First Street, NE, Washington, D.C. 20002-4242.
