INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS
Manuscripts should conform to the conventions specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (fifth edition) with the exceptions and considerations presented below. Authors are requested to submit manuscripts electronically in RTF or Word format to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manuscripts should have equal margins on all sides and numbered consecutively with the title page as page 1. Please prepare a brief abstract of no more than 150 words. Use first person and active voice when preparing your abstracts. The manuscript, abstract, figures and tables should be integrated into the manuscript whenever possible. In addition, authors should save the abstract, figures & tables as separate files.
The length of the manuscript should not exceed 8-10.000 words.
FIGURES, TABLES, AND IMAGES
Figures tables and images must accompany the manuscript in a separate electronic format, such as tiff, giff, and jpeg, and should be of sufficiently high resolution to appear sharp when printed. All figures must be in a form suitable for reproduction. Authors are also encouraged to submit their figures in the actual final size in the manuscript.
NUMBERING OF FIGURES, TABLES AND IMAGES
Each figure, table, or image is to be mentioned in the text and numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals in order of appearance. The word “Figure” should always appear unabbreviated in the text. A brief title should be typed directly below each table. Tables and any explanations or clarifications of tabular material should be indicated as a footnote to the table by means of lower case letters.
Authors are to consult the APA Publication Manual for the correct listing of references at the end. All references must be closely checked in text and lists to determine that dates and spellings are consistent. Please note that the names of all authors should be given in the list of references, and “et al.” used only in the text. Below are examples for books and journals.

REFERENCES FOR SINGLE AUTHORS APPEAR AS FOLLOWS:

Brandt (2007: 1) defines cognitive semiotics as “a research program predicated on the notion that human cognition and human signification are two sides of the same coin.”
