In this article, I will outline how a Lakehead student goes about submitting the results of their research to be considered for publication in The Post. As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission’s compliance with all of the following items. Submissions may be returned to student writers that do not adhere to these guidelines.
Submission Preparation Checklist
- The writer is currently an undergraduate student at Lakehead University.
- 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, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided. Both APA and The Post prefer DOI indicators, if an online reference possesses one.
- The text is double-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, which is found in About the Journal.
- If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
Once these ducks are in a row, the easiest and best way to get the paper into the systems is to login to post.lakeheadu.ca and go through the website there. If you are burning to submit and have any challenges with the process, the formatting or the technology, please do email me at email@example.com. I’m certain we can sort any troubles out so you can put your article or paper in the hands of our reviewers.
