  • Manuscripts should be typed, double-spaced, and on one side only of white 8 1/2 x 11 paper. The article should be no longer than 35 pages. Leave generous margins on all four sides of the page. Article title, author's name, professional title, and institutional affiliation on a separate cover sheet. Only the article title should appear on subsequent pages to facilitate blind review. Authors should closely follow the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition). Tabular material should be kept to a minimum - three to four at most - authors will be asked to provide camera-ready copy for charts and graphs of articles accepted for publication. Also, include a 100-word abstract with each article.

    Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/epy. Authors will be required to set up an online account on the SageTrack system powered by ScholarOne. Obtaining permission for any quoted or reprinted material that requires permission is the responsibility of the author. Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content. Authors in doubt about what constitutes prior publication should consult the editor.

    Authors who want to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider utilizing the services of SPi, a non-affiliated company that offers Professional Editing Services to authors of journal articles in the areas of science, technology, medicine or the social sciences. SPi specializes in editing and correcting English-language manuscripts written by authors with a primary language other than English. Visit http://www.prof-editing.com for more information about SPi’s Professional Editing Services, pricing, and turn-around times, or to obtain a free quote or submit a manuscript for language polishing.

    Please be aware that SAGE has no affiliation with SPi and makes no endorsement of the company. An author’s use of SPi’s services in no way guarantees that his or her submission will ultimately be accepted. Any arrangement an author enters into will be exclusively between the author and SPi, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author.

    If you or your funder wish your article to be freely available online to nonsubscribers immediately upon publication (gold open access), you can opt for it to be included in SAGE Choice, subject to the payment of a publication fee. The manuscript submission and peer review procedure is unchanged. On acceptance of your article, you will be asked to let SAGE know directly if you are choosing SAGE Choice. To check journal eligibility and the publication fee, please visit SAGE Choice. For more information on open access options and compliance at SAGE, including self author archiving deposits (green open access) visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.
