Guidelines for Submissions to MITESOL Journal

For all submissions, please use the following general format:

  • A title page with contact details: name, address, telephone, fax, email, article title, author names(s) with institutional affiliation(s), article type, and abstract (150 word maximum).
  • The remaining pages should be numbered consecutively, starting with a 150-word abstract numbered as page 1 and the main text of the article starting on page 2. All charts and graphs must be “camera ready” (that is, they must print clearly in black and white and in normal margins).
  • All graphics and charts should be prepared as separate files. Please use widely accepted file formats.
  • The page number and title should be placed in the upper right-hand corner of each page, and the style and bibliographic references should conform to those set out in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th Edition.
  • There should be no information identifying the author(s) on page 1 through the end of the manuscript either in the form of a header or footer or in the body of the article.
  • See additional formatting specifics for the type of article you have prepared elsewhere in these guidelines.
  • Send files as Word documents (.docx) in email attachments to the Submissions Editor only.
