Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end. There is a limit of five tables per article.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements for Pacific Journalism Monographs outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  • When uploading a final copy of an accepted article for publication, all tables, graphics and illustrations must be supplied as independent high resolution (300 dpi) .tif or .jpg images with file names corresponding to the embedded place holder within the article text.
  • To ensure blind review, when submitting, authors of the document must delete their names from the text, with "Author" and year used in the references and footnotes, instead of the authors' name, article title, etc.
