Manuscript Submission

Manuscripts are submitted via the PSC Manuscript Central web site at mc.manuscriptcentral.com/hpsp. If you are new to this web site, open a new author account (located at the right side of the web page) and then upload your manuscript according to the web site instructions.

Only original manuscripts are considered for publication and are accepted for review on the condition that they are not being simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Authors are required to sign an agreement for the transfer of copyright to the publisher. All accepted manuscripts, artwork, and photographs become the property of the publisher. Manuscripts should be limited to 7500 words and must conform with the American Psychological Association's (APA) style and formatting guidelines (including the use of Courier or Times Roman font, 12 pitch, with all margins set at 1.25 inches; the first line of each paragraph should be indented 0.5 inches, and ALL TEXT, including abstract, text, quoted passages, footnotes, endnotes, and references, must be double-spaced). The abstract should be no longer than 200 words. The final pages of the article are reserved for references to all works cited in the text. Page numbers and an abbreviated title (running head) should appear in the upper right hand corner of every page. Text references follow the author-date system, e.g., (Smith, 1996), and are cited within the text, not as footnotes or endnotes. Multiple text references are listed chronologically, not alphabetically. Every text citation must have its corresponding reference listing.
