Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor). AND The manuscript has been approved for submission by the Editor-in-Chief. AND The author is working in the Division of Entomology, University of Kansas.
- The submission file is in Microsoft Word, RTF, or PDF document file format. The authors names and addresses, full manuscript, full bibliography, and figure legends are all included in the Microsoft Word file. The title page must incude full author names, addresses, and emails. All manuscripts should be formatted like recent issues of the journal. Manuscripts which do not follow this formatting will be rejected without review.
- All URL addresses in the references (e.g., http://pkp.ubc.ca) are activated and ready to click.
- The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); with figures and tables placed within the text, rather than at the end; and has removed extraneous embedded formatting. Individual figures files (as TIFFs) must also be uploaded under the supplementary files section of the submission process.
The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal. The text has been carefully checked by a native speaker of English (who is named and acknowledged in the Acknowledgements section: manuscripts which are poorly written in English will be rejected without review).
