Submission of Manuscripts

Original manuscripts should be submitted to John Harvey, Department of Psychology, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242-1407; phone (319) 335- 2473; fax (319) 335-2799; e-mail: john-harvey@uiowa.edu. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit manuscript files via email attachment. The manuscript should be prepared using MS Word or WordPerfect and should be clearly labeled with the authorsí names, file name, and software program. Each manuscript must be accompanied by a statement that it has not been published elsewhere and that it has not been submitted simultaneously for publication else-where. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted material from other sources and are required to sign an agreement for the transfer of copyright to the publisher. 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. All titles should be as brief as possible, 6 to 12 words. 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.

Manuscripts, including tables, figures, and references, should be prepared in accordance with the Publication Manual of the American Psychology Association (Fourth Edition, 1994). Copies of the manual can be obtained from the Publication Department, American Psychological Association, 750 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20002-4242; phone (202) 336-5500.


Illustrations submitted (line drawings, halftones, photos, photomicrographs, etc.) should be clean originals or digital files. Digital files are recommended for highest quality reproduction and should follow these guidelines:

  • 300 dpi or higher
  • sized to fit on journal page
  • EPS, TIFF, or PSD format only
  • submitted as separate files, not embedded in text files

Tables and Figures

Tables and figures should not be embedded in the text, but should be included as separate sheets or files. A short descriptive title should appear above each table with a clear legend and any footnotes suitably identified below. All units must be included. Figures should be completely labeled, taking into account necessary size reduction. Captions should be typed, double-spaced, on a separate sheet. All original figures should be clearly marked in pencil on the reverse side with the number, authorís name, and top edge indicated.


One set of page proofs is sent to the designated author. Proofs should be checked and returned within 48 hours.
