    Summary of Minimum Specifications
    Original articles should not exceed 2,500 words (excluding abstracts, references and tables). Methodology sections should be as short as necessary, while presenting the basic information necessary to enable the reader to understand the steps taken. The number of tables, graphs and figures (or a combination of all three) should not exceed three, for a 2,500-word article. Conversely, if long sections of descriptive text can be categorized and synthesized in a table or graph, this should be done. In addition, only those references essential to the integrity of the paper should be listed. If appropriate, authors should make complete methodology sections and lists of references available to readers on request. Manuscripts that do not meet these specifications will be returned to the author for appropriate revisions prior to being sent out for peer review.
