Author Guidelines

Formatting guidelines

Manuscripts should be submitted in English. Papers in languages other than English will be considered for publication at the editor-in-chief's discretion.

Title page
The title, a short title, author name(s), affiliation(s), full address(es), and email addresses of all authors must be included. The name and address of the corresponding author should be clearly indicated along with telephone and email details.

Formatting of text
Do not use the automated features of the text software, such as hyphenation, headers, footers, or endnotes. Page numbering can be used.
Use single hard-returns to separate paragraphs. Do not use tabs or indents to start a paragraph.
Numbers one to ten are written out in words unless they are used as a unit of measurement, except in figures and tables.

Indicate references in the text sequentially by number(s) in square brackets in line with the text. The actual authors can be referred to, but the reference number(s) must always be given. For example: reported by McMorris et al. [12]
Two references are cited separated by a comma, with no space. Three or more consecutive references are given as a range with an en rule.
References in tables, figures, and panels should be in numerical order according to where the item is cited in the text.
Number the references in the reference list in the order in which they appear in the text.
Examples for journal references are:
Yerkes RM, Dodson JD. The relation of strength of stimulus to the rapidity of habit formation. J Comp Neurol Psychol 1908; 18: 459-482.
Tomporowski PD, Ellis NR. Effects of exercise on cognitive processes: a review. Psychol Bull 1986; 99: 338–346.
Give any subpart to the title of the article.

For a chapter or section of a book, also give the authors and title of the section, and the page numbers:
McMorris T, Turner A, Hale BJ, Sproule J. Beyond the catecholamines hypothesis for an acute exercise-cognition interaction: a neurochemical perspective. In: McMorris T, ed. Exercise-cognition interaction: neuroscience perspectives. New York: Elsevier Academic Press, 2016: 65-104.
