One author will need to be identified as the corresponding author, with their email address normally displayed in the article PDF (depending on the journal) and the online article. Authors’ affiliations are the affiliations where the research was conducted. If any of the named co-authors moves affiliation during the peer-review process, the new affiliation can be given as a footnote. Please note that no changes to affiliation can be made after your paper is accepted.
  2. A non-structured abstract of no more than 100 words. 
  3. You can opt to include a video abstract with your article.
  4. 6 keywords, in alphabetic order. Read making your article more discoverable, including information on choosing a title and search engine optimization.
