Author Guidelines

Guidelines for Manuscript Specifications

  • Manuscripts should be double-spaced with one-inch margins, 12-point Times New Roman font, and a maximum of 25 pages (including references and footnotes). An abstract should be included (no longer than 100 words) and references should be listed at the end of the manuscript. The exception is book review word counts, which should not exceed 1,800 words and does not require an abstract. The manuscript, abstract, and references should conform to American Psychological Association Publication Manual, Sixth Edition (APA 6th).
  • Cover page and blinded manuscript are submitted separately. Each electronic copy must be in Word format. Manuscripts submitted in other formats will not be reviewed and will be returned to the author.¬†Author name, work address, telephone number, and email address must appear on the cover sheet. The editors of TME use a blind review process therefore no author identification should appear on the manuscript after the cover sheet. Also note on the cover sheet if the manuscript is based on dissertation research, a funded project, or a paper presented at a professional meeting.
  • Original figures, tables, and graphs should appear embedded in the document and conform to APA 6th.
