Submit your manuscript, including tables, figures, etc., as a single WORD file
Fonts: Times New Roman, single spacing, 12 point in the body of the paper, 10 point for footnotes
Alignment: Justified in block format
Margins: Left and right 1.25”; top and bottom 1”
Charts and tables:
Provide titles or labels
Caption font: Times New Roman, 10 point, single spacing
Sources for tables should be cited below each table
If tables or figures do not originate from WORD, insert as .jpegs or .gifs
Headings: If using headings, keep them consistent and logical in terms of style and numbering.
Mathematics: Separate mathematical expressions from the main text using a space above and below.
Footnotes: Place at the bottom of the page on which they are referenced rather than at the end of the paper. Footnote numbers follow rather than precede punctuation
Write acronyms in full the first instance, after which abbreviations can be used
Spell out 'percent' in the text; may use '%' in tables
Avoid run-on sentences
Limit use of passive voice
Be consistent with verb tense, switching only when necessary for your meaning
Check for subject-verb agreement (e.g., word 'data' is plural, expression like "group of workers" is singular)
Make sure all sources are fully and accurately documented using the Chicago Style – Author/Date System [See Citation Guidelines, or use RefWorks, with 'Chicago 16th Edition (Author-Date System)' as your bibliographical output style].
