Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines









Acceptable Formats

Manuscripts should be in the following format:

  • Microsoft Word

Anonymity of Authors

The editors review all submissions, and those deemed appropriate for MMIJE are sent anonymously to reviewers. The editors rely heavily on reviewers' judgments, although the editors are not bound by them. Strong efforts are made to ensure prompt decisions about acceptance. To protect anonymity, only the title should appear on the manuscript. A separate cover page should carry the title, author's name, and author's affiliation. All identifying references and notes should be separated from other references and notes. Citations in text to these references should be to "Identifying Reference" and the publication date.

Manuscript submission indicates the author's commitment to publish in MMIJE and to give MMIJE first publication rights. No paper known to be under consideration by another journal will be reviewed.

Manuscript Preparation

  • Type all copy double spaced—including indented matter, footnotes, and references—and allow generous margins at top, bottom, and sides of page.
  • Include an abstract (150 words or less) summarising the paper's chief contribution.
  • On a separate page, provide a two- or three-line bio data


The Journal referencing style is APA

All sources listed in the reference list must be cited at appropriate points in the text by the author's last name, publication year, and pagination where appropriate, as indicated. When author's name is in text: Rader (1975). When author's name is not in text: (Wills 1976). When citing pagination (for a quote): (Bell 1967, 62). With dual authorship, give both names; for three or more, use "et al." For institutional authorship, identify from the beginning of the complete citation: (U.S. Bureau of the Census 1963, 117). When more than one reference to an author was published in one year, distinguish them by use of letters (a, b) attached to the publication year: (1956a). Enclose a series of references (in alphabetical order) within one pair of parentheses, separated by semicolons: (Bowles and Gintis 1976; Coleman 1973a; Kaiser 1964).
