    Author Guidelines

    All contributions should be in English, and all submissions will be subjected to blind review. Manuscripts should conform to the style of the American Psychological Association (5th edition); footnotes and endnotes should be avoided as much as possible. For more information on APA style, please refer to University of Alberta Library APA Guidelines. The preferred length of manuscripts will be between 4500-6500 words. Manuscripts that are much smaller or greatly exceed this may not be considered. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; 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 journal can only accept manuscripts that are original and are not under consideration elsewhere. By submitting their work to the journal, authors give copy right of that work to the journal and its editors. All submissions should be sent to the editor as an e-mail attachment: aabdi@ualberta.ca.
