  • Anonymity. All manuscripts are read blind and judged anonymously, and therefore must not contain any identifying details. Dedications and/or acknowledgments should be removed from the manuscript and uploaded under "Additional Documents" on the submission form.
  • Stress-free submitting.  We, too, are only human. Minor grammatical or formatting mistakes will not negatively impact the judging of your manuscript. In the unlikely event we are unable to judge your manuscript, for any reason, we'll always contact you and try to resolve any issues.  

Please review the full Guidelines before submitting.
