Submissions

JQCJC will consider only original manuscripts not previously published or currently under consideration elsewhere. All submissions and correspondence should be directed to the dedicated e-mail address: jqcjc@msu.edu

All manuscripts should be in English, attached as Word Documents, double-spaced, preferably less than 40 pages (including tables, references, and appendices), and should conform to the latest APA format, without the use, however, of any running headers or DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers). Endnotes, tables, and figures should be on a separate page at the end of the manuscript with call-outs for placement.

JQCJC uses a three stage review process. The first stage is internal review. Three reviewers are obtained to determine if the manuscript meets the level of quality to merit external review. If there is agreement, the manuscript moves into the second stage, external review. Three peer reviewers will assess the quality and make an editorial decision on the status of the manuscript. If accepted for publication, the manuscript will then go through the third stage of review: copy-editing for quality control.

Manuscripts will be published in the spring (April 15) and fall (October 15) issues in PDF format.
