Mail completed paper to email@example.com. A manuscript submitted for publication must be original and not under consideration by any other publication. If a paper has been presented at a meeting or conference, the author should state where and when the paper was presented. All authors will be required to sign a consent-to-publish form upon acceptance. Manuscripts submitted are processed as follows: The staff initially reviews the manuscript. If the manuscript does not fall within the scope of the Symposium or is not formatted according to CMS, 16th ed., it will be returned to the author.
If a manuscript is in accord with the technical requirements, an email acknowledgement is sent to the author. All references to the author’s name and affiliation are to be removed, and the manuscript is required to be submitted for blind review by academics with knowledge of the field within which the manuscript is categorised. With the advice of the reviewers, the Symposium Editor will make one of four decisions: accept, accept contingent upon revision, revise and resubmit, or reject.
It is preferred that manuscripts be submitted by e-mail as a Microsoft Word file with no references to the authors anywhere in the document.
