Submissions

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically as Word or RTF document and may be up to 35 double-spaced, pages in length and sent directly to Sibylle Artz, Editor sartz@uvic.ca. Submission of an original manuscript to the Journal will be taken to mean that it represents original work not previously published, that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication. Authors must take full responsibility for all figures, etc, and present them as camera-ready copy.

Author Bio

The author(s) must supply a brief (25 word) bio giving name, rank, institution, institutional address, and email address. For example, Sibylle Artz is Professor of Child and Youth Care at University of Victoria, 3800 Finnerty Road, Victoria, BC V8W 2Y2. Email: sartz@uvic.ca

Manuscript Layout

Wherever possible, the paper should follow the traditional layout: introduction (motivation, problem identification and a short literature survey), present investigation (background, method, materials, subjects and results), and conclusion.

Title page

Organize the title page in the following way: 1) title of manuscript, 2) name of author(s), 3) name of department(s) and institution(s), and 4) name and full postal address of the corresponding author who also acts as 'Guarantor' for all parts of the paper.

The title should be informative and accurate and at the same time trigger the interest of the reader. A short running head will be derived from the title to appear on each page of the paper.

Language

All articles should be written in English - British or American as long as consistency is observed.

Conflict of interest and funding

Authors are responsible for disclosing financial support from the industry or other conflicts of interest that might bias the interpretation of results.

Ethics and consent

When reporting experiments on patients or animals, please indicate whether the procedures followed were approved by your local ethics committee and/or in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2008 (http://www.wma.net/e/policy/b3.htm).
