social, economic, cultural, and natural areas. Thus, manuscripts
submitted should be of scholarly/academic standards. Prospective
authors should consult writing manuals, such as the University Chicago
Style, APA for examples of citation and reference styles.

for publication should expect a four month turn around from the
time of submission to the time of publication. Generally,
authors are informed about the status of their manuscripts (i.e.
whether accepted or rejected) within eight weeks.
external reviewers will evaluate the manuscripts for their quality,
originality, and contribution to knowledge. Accepted manuscripts
must not be published elsewhere. A submitted manuscript must
include a 150 word abstract and a short author biography on a separate
