Submission Guidelines

Manuscripts submitted to the Basic Communication Course Annual must conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition (2009). Manuscripts should be submitted using the template available for download here. Manuscripts should not exceed 30 pages, exclusive of tables and references, nor be under consideration by any other publishing outlet at the time of submission. By submitting to the Annual, authors maintain that they will not submit their manuscript to another outlet without first withdrawing it from consideration for the Annual. Each submission must be accompanied by an abstract of 200 or fewer words and an author identification paragraph of 50 to 75 words for each author. A separate title page should include:

  1. The title of the paper and identification of the author(s).
  2. The address, telephone number, and email address of the contact person.
  3. Data pertinent to the manuscript's history.

Note: All references to the author(s) and institutional affiliation(s) should be removed from the text of the manuscript to ensure blind peer review.

Submissions for the Basic Course Forum section must indicate their consideration for this area of the journal. They should be 5 to 7 pages, prepared using the template available for download here. A reference page must be included as well. Longer submissions may be considered, but the goal is to make a succinct argument in response to the question posed. Submissions will undergo blind peer review.
