Submissions may only be made electronically. We accept manuscripts via the Submittable website. You will receive an acknowledgement email via Submittable. While we endeavour to review submissions in a timely manner, this is not always possible. If you have not heard back from us after 3 months, please assume we are unable to move forward with your manuscript. Please check your junk mail folder during this time. Thank you for the opportunity to consider your work.
