Instructions to Authors and Information about Manuscript Submission

  1. Manuscripts, in English, should be submitted to the Editor's Office via the journal's web-based online manuscript submission and peer-review system at ONLINE MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION.

    Inquiries regarding journal policy, manuscript preparation, and other such general topics should be sent to the Editor: Frank Andrasik, Ph.D., Editor Department of Psychology University of West Florida 11000 University Parkway Pensacola, FL 32514-5751 e-mail:fndrasik@memphis.edu The Journal uses nonblind review, but authors may elect blind review. The author must state this intent clearly in a cover letter and remove all identifying information from the manuscript prior to submission.

  2. Submission is a representation that the manuscript has not been published previously and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. A statement transferring copyright from the authors (or their employers, if they hold the copyright) to Plenum Publishing Corporation will be required before the manuscript can be accepted for publication. The Editor will supply the necessary forms for this transfer. Such a written transfer of copyright, which previously was assumed to be implicit in the act of submitting a manuscript, is necessary under the U.S. Copyright Law in order for the publisher to carry through the dissemination of research results and reviews as widely and effectively as possible.

  3. Manuscripts are to be typed double-spaced. Academic or professional affiliations of all authors and the full mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address of the one author who will review the proofs should be included. A brief running title should appear at the top of each page.

  4. An abstract of 200 words or less is to be provided.

  5. A list of up to 5 descriptive key words (or phrases) is to be provided directly below the abstract. Key words should express the precise content of the manuscript, as they are used for indexing purposes.

  6. Tables should be numbered and referred to by number in the text. Each table should be typed on a separate page and should have a descriptive title.

  7. Illustrations (photographs, drawings, diagrams, and charts) are to be numbered in one consecutive series of Arabic numerals, and referred to by number in the text. Photographs should high contrast and drawings should be dark, sharp, and clear. Artwork for each figure should be provided on a separate page. Each figure should have an accompanying caption. The list of captions for illustrations should be typed on a separate page.

  8. The 2001 (fifth) edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association should be used as the style guide for the preparation of manuscripts, particularly with respect to such matters as the citing of references and the use of abbreviations, numbers, and symbols.

  9. The description of the procedures should be sufficiently detailed to allow replication of the experiment, or clinical procedure, by a reader trained in applied psychophysiology.

  10. Footnotes should be avoided. When their use is absolutely necessary, footnotes should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals and should be typed at the bottom of the page to which they refer. Place a line above the footnote, so that it is set off from the text. Use the appropriate superscript numeral for citation in the text.

  11. The journal makes no page charges. Reprints are available to authors, and order forms with the current price schedule are sent with proofs.
