Submission Guidelines


Processing of Manuscripts

There are two annual deadlines for manuscript submission, 01 December and 01 June. All submitted manuscripts are reviewed by at least two field referees without author identification, for recommendations regarding publication of the materials. JMC editors will reach the final decision and convey this to the author(s). Accepted manuscripts will appear on the NASGEm website in PDF format. Receipt of all manuscripts will be acknowledged. JMC editors accept manuscripts throughout the year.


Editors of JMC welcome manuscripts that have not been published elsewhere or are not being considered for publication by other journals. To ensure efficient review of submissions please adhere to the preparation guidelines listed.

Preparation of Manuscripts

  1. Submit manuscripts in Word format if possible (Times New Roman Font – 12 point).
  2. Place the title and name(s) of author(s), affiliation, and contact information on a separate cover sheet. No other author identification should occur in the manuscript. Authors should not reference work in any way that compromises the review process.
  3. Include an Abstract of 100 words or less in English and another language, if appropriate.
  4. Leave margins of one inch on the sides and at the top and bottom of each page. Pagination should be center bottom. Use double spacing for all material, including quoted matter, lists, tables, notes, references, and bibliographies.
  5. Indicate a paragraph by indenting the first line rather than by including an extra space between paragraphs. Please imbed any figures, diagrams, or photographs in the manuscript with appropriate
    captions. The author must obtain permission if a photograph or student work which clearly shows the student's face or full name is included.
  6. Provide accurate and complete bibliographical information. All manuscript citations should be listed at the end of the manuscript and must adhere to the APA Publication Style – 5th Edition. Please note that there have been changes in APA style guidelines for electronic resources with the publication of APA Publication Manual (5th edition – American Psychological Association, 2001). See
  7. Please, submitting your manuscript, use a spell checker and recheck your manuscript for grammar, completeness, and spelling of all proper names, and full identification of all organizations and groups named by initials or acronyms. If you request, the editors will put authors in touch with a professional manuscript editor.
  8. Electronic submission of manuscripts is preferred. Email manuscripts to Prof. Tod L Shockey at
