Manuscript submission

Manuscript submission will begin in late summer as we change the review platform. Please check back in July or email early submissions directly to the journal editor at Thank you.



Please read the guidelines carefully before submitting your work. Failure to follow the guidelines will result in the rejection of your manuscript. Files must be PC versions of Word or *.rtf (rich text format). The AURCO Journal does not support *.pdf files, Mac platforms, or software. If you created tables, figures, or graphs using Word or Excel, simply place the table, figure, or graph in your intended location. Do not use color; use black and white only. If you created tables, figures, or graphs using any software other than Word or Excel, attach a separate *.jpg file for each table, graph, or figure and note the location of each item in the text of the manuscript as follows:

--------------------------------------- Insert Figure 1 here ---------------------------------------

Except for italics, and boldface, the document should be free of pagination, word-processing formatting, and style commands, including headers and footers. Use endnotes and not footnotes. Any notes should be numbered and entered at the end of the paper. Do not include hyperlinks. Do not embed any notes in any style commands. Place NO identifying information in the body of your paper, such as the header or on a title page, or with the abstract, as all manuscripts undergo a blind review process. Identifying information will be collected separately when you upload your files. In keeping with the AURCO Journal tradition of maintaining an interdisciplinary publication, there is no preferred style for article submissions. The MLA, Modern Language Association, and APA, American Psychological Association formats are commonly employed. Be consistent in notation if you cannot use MLA or APA styles. Regardless of the demands of your discipline, in the bibliography, avoid using abbreviations for titles of journals. Proofread everything after you have corrected your final hard copy. Remember to make any changes to the files before mailing and e-mailing. If the reviewers and Associate Editor approve your paper, it will be submitted to the Editor for final review and approval. If approved by the Editor you will be contacted by e-mail.
