- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- The text is spaced at exactly 14pt; uses a 12-point Times New Roman font for body of manuscript and Doulos SIL or Charis SIL for language examples; 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, which is found in About the Journal.
- If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
- The paper has been anonymized in Microsoft Word by 1) manually replacing the name of the author with XXXX wherever it appears and 2) by using the Inspect Document function of Word to automatically remove metadata in the form of Document Properties and Personal Information that may be used to identify the author.
