An unsolicited manuscript is welcome provided that it or significant portions thereof have not been published previously. A submitted manuscript should not be under review with any other journal. Authors must adhere to a single submission policy.
When submitting a manuscript, please adhere to the following guidelines:
Author should submit manuscripts in MS Word (.doc) or a Word compatible format, using "Arial" 12-point font.
Authors should submit articles in a web-friendly version, which includes eliminating the use of "tabs" and auto formatting.
Authors should use subheadings, where appropriate, and paragraph breaks must be done using "carriage returns". Authors should not indent paragraphs.
With the exception of legal references, which should be cited according to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (17th edition), authors should adhere to the citation guidelines in the most recent version of The Chicago Manual of Style.
If applicable, authors should use endnotes instead of footnotes.
Authors should include their institutional/organizational affiliation, address, telephone number, and e-mail address along with a one or two sentence biostatement in a separate attachment when submitting a manuscript.

CATEGORIES OF MANUSCRIPTS CONSIDERED FOR PUBLICATION
The Journal will consider the following types of contributions:
- scholarly articles
- book reviews
- profiles of legal cases
- consensus papers
- conference reports
- letters to the editor
- commentaries on past articles

Submitted manuscripts will undergo double blind peer review in order to determine whether the subject matter fits within the scope of the Journal and to assess the quality of the manuscript. The Editor will remove all identifying information from a submitted manuscript before submitting it to reviewers. Some categories of manuscripts, such as solicited book reviews, may be subject to a modified form of peer review.
Authors should submit their manuscripts in as polished a form as possible, which includes having complete citations and writing in as clear a form as possible. When submitting a manuscript for consideration, authors should also keep in mind that members of the Journal's reading audience belong to a variety of different fields.
Authors are expected to submit their own original work. Plagiarism is wholly unacceptable, which includes but is not limited to presenting someone else's work as your own or submitting a manuscript for publication that has already been published without informing the editors when the manuscript is first received by the Journal. Authors are also expected to cite all materials appropriately.
The disclosure of any professional, financial, or other significant conflicts of interest that may influence the objectivity of the views presented should accompany a manuscript submitted for publication. Following the peer review process, if a manuscript is accepted for publication, the editorial staff will discuss with the authors how information relating to conflicts of interest will be disclosed to the Journalís readership.
