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 file is in Microsoft Word or Open Office document file format.
  • 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.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • Where available, URLs (preferably DOI URLs) for the references have been provided.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration. We accept dissertations or Capstone studies previously published in ProQuest, a dissertation or thesis database, or other similar situations if the derivative article is substantially revised into a journal article style. Please provide an explanation in the Comments to the Editor field if this is a dissertation/capstone-derived research article.

Author Guidelines

All articles must be loaded using MS Word (only) and follow APA 7 formatting, except for the listed exceptions below. Please use Times New Roman type and 12-point type for the content, and 10-point type for Tables and notes.

Include a cover page with the title in Title Case (not all-caps), each author’s name, followed by credentials (i.e., PhD or MD), and a brief biography and email address, and this statement, “By submitting this article, the authors agree they have read and will follow the policies and procedures of C’JAR as noted in the submission policies information.”

Exceptions and guidance to APA formatting:

Tables, figures, etc. are placed where they belong, with APA titles, but with one change. Please place the Table and Figure titles on the same lines as the Table and Figure numbers. So, like this:

Table 1. Demographics of Participants

 Figure 1. The Applied Framework

Leave one line between the title and the table or figure.

Tables should be 10-point type, single-spaced, in the same font as the article (i.e., Times New Roman). Figures with written information should have fonts that are no smaller than 10-point type, all of which should be legible to a reader. Notes should also be in 10-point type and single-spaced. All other APA table and figure guidance should be followed.

Abstracts should follow APA’s guidelines. Be sure to provide a list of pertinent Keywords to enable search engines to find your article. Please do not self-cite within your article - if you have, change your name to "author" for submission. 

Double-space your references and use a hanging indent. Do not use manual line spacing – use the Word double-spacing feature.
