- The article, or any part thereof, is in no way a violation of any existing original or derivative copyright.
- The submission file is in Microsoft Word or RTF document file format.
- The text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses).
- All URL addresses in the text (e.g., IJCYFS) are activated and ready to click.
- The text adheres to the journal's formatting requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
- The text, if submitted to a peer-reviewed section (e.g., Articles), has had the authors' names removed.
