Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

The ideal length of an accepted article is around 8000 words, excluding references (authors are encouraged to generously cite others) but including footnotes (if the regular in-text citation system is used). Please keep footnotes to an absolute minimum.

The submitted document should be a Word file (.doc or .docx). 

Philosophy of AI follows APA Style (7th edition). 

In-text citations: The author-date system should be used once accepted. Submissions with non-APA style citations are accepted.

For example: (Anscombe, 1958, p. 13; Lewis, 1980, pp. 264–270)

Authors are required that their in-text citations be rendered as hyperlinks to the list of references. The easiest way to do this is to use a citation manager.

Authors are strongly encouraged to use a citation manager (Zotero works especially well in our case) before finalizing their revised submission. 

A reference list will be created in the production process and is hence not needed in the manuscript (it will be deleted during the transformation process of the text). All metadata are included in the Zotero citations. Please make sure that the metadata in Zotero is correct. If possible, we encourage you to additionally export your references as Zotero RDF.

Please avoid complicated features like auto-numbering of examples and sections. Keep the formatting of the paper as simple as possible. The text format (font style, font size, line spacing) is irrelevant due to the automatic transformation of the text, so feel free to use whatever you prefer. The use of footnotes should be kept to a minimum. For section headings, please use the headlines from styles and formatting.

If you have graphics or tables, please insert them into the text (including captions).

Authors are discouraged from making extensive use of footnotes. No Endnotes.
