This is a step-by-step guide that walks through the process an author takes to submit a work for review and publication in your journal. This guide is provided so that you can understand how your various settings, particularly those edited in the Submission Guidelines section, are represented to your submitting authors. Authors will primarily reach this process through the "Submissions" page of your journal's homepage.
