INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS

Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has not been and will not be published nor is presently submitted elsewhere, that all persons listed as authors have given their approval for the submission of the paper, and that any person cited as a source of personal communication has approved such citation. Authors submitting a manuscript do so on the understanding that, if it is accepted for publication, copyright of the article, including the right to reproduce that article in any form and media, shall be assigned exclusively to the Publisher. The Publisher will not refuse any reasonable request by the author for permission to reproduce any of his or her contributions to the Journal of Writing Assessment.

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION

Manuscript Preparation: Submission should be between 15 and 30 pages in length, typed, double-spaced, on 8 x 11 inch paper with 1 inch margins on all sides and include a 200-word abstract and a short (50-100 words) bio statement. Please include a current email address with your materials.

Style: The style guidelines of the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association should be followed, especially for reference lists and text citation of sources (see References below).

Review: As manuscripts are submitted for blind review, all identifying information should be removed from the body of the paper.

Tables and Figures: Tables and Figures should follow formatting guidelines for the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Tables and figures should be completely understandable, independent of the text. Each table and figure must be mentioned in the text, given a title, and consecutively numbered with Arabic numerals. Authors must provide good-quality originals of all figures to be directly reproduced for publication. Color originals, which will be published in black and white, are discouraged.

Notes: Notes should be used sparingly and indicated by consecutive numbers in the text. Acknowledgements, grant numbers, or other credits, should be given as a separated, asterisked note.

References: References should follow the guidelines for the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

Permissions: Copies of any letters granting permission to reproduce illustrations, tables, or lengthy quoted passages should be included with the manuscript.

Corrections: Authors are expected to correct and return page proofs to the editor within a few days of receipt.
