Sample Submission Manuscripts

Sample Submission Manuscripts

Important Notice: The new 6th Edition of the APA manual will not be available until July. Sample manuscripts will be available by linking to the manuscript type below once the Editors can create documents that comply with the new manuscript formatting guidelines. Go to the APA website for details about what is changed between the 5th and 6th editions, and also to order the new manual. If authors submit manuscripts using 5th edition guidelines, it is expected that during the revision process authors will use the new 6th edition guidelines and that the final, camera ready manuscript will be 6th edition compliant.

All submissions should:

  • Have 1” margins on all sides (left, right, top, bottom)

  • Use 12 point Times New Roman font

  • Be double spaced

  • Follow formatting as defined by the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) (6th Ed.). Authors should, however, include figures and tables in-text where they are intended to appear.
