Style Guide

Format Requirements

Submissions should be no more than 10 double-spaced pages in length (not including illustrations or the Faculty Sponsorship Form) and should follow APA Style. Information on APA Style can be found in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (Sixth Edition) or on the APA Style website. To help provide an unbiased review, authorship information should be removed from the text and included on the article submission form only.

Articles should be ordered as follows:

  • Title
  • Abstract [less than 300 words]
  • Body
  • Acknowledgments
  • References

Materials requiring alternative formatting will be considered upon special request to the editors. For assistance, contact undgres@auburn.edu.


Illustrations (pictures, figures, tables, graphs) are encouraged but are limited to six. They do not count towards the page length. Only high-quality illustrations that are essential to the work should be included. Requests for additional illustrations should be directed to the editors. All illustrations should be included in the submitted article. Authors may be asked to provide illustrations in JPEG or TIFF format for final production, if the submission is accepted for publication.
