As has been the case for many years, the JOURNAL accepts for review manuscripts that are typed double spaced on numbered pages, accompanied by the references, tables, figures, and other supporting documents, and submitted in duplicate.

Authors are asked to prepare manuscripts in a manner that facilitates conversion by optical scanning to a computer readable file. When the text cannot be read by optical scanning, it is entered into the computer manually. Both processes are costly and time-consuming.

To avoid delay, expense, and errors, the JOURNAL now also will accept manuscripts prepared on computer disks. These must be written in ASCII format or as a DOS text file. Manuscripts may be submitted by mailing the disk or may be transmitted by modem. Tables should be limited to the number of columns that will readily fit on a standard screen. Other tables and all figures together with two complete printed copies of the manuscript should be forwarded by mail.
