For articles submitted to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the identity of the author(s) must be withheld, as this journal adheres to a "double blind" peer-review process.
To ensure anonymity, the name(s) of the author(s) must be deleted from the manuscript’s text and file properties, and the submitting author must upload a separate file with a title page that includes author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s). Please follow these instructions:
- The title page must be uploaded separately from the manuscript, as an additional file, during the submission process.
- Check that the text of your manuscript is also blinded; that is to say, any references within the manuscript which might reveal you to be the author are removed.
- If you as an author are very easily recognizable based on the project you are describing, the project should also be anonymized.
- Author identification must also be removed from the properties for the file. Instructions for deleting names from file properties in Word can be found here: Support Microsoft Office.
If you have any questions regarding anonymization of your manuscript, contact the editors.
