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 or Microsoft Word document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • 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.

Author Guidelines

If you do not follow any of these requirements, AHLIST reserves the right to reject your submission.



  1. Manuscripts should follow the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Please refer to the following page regarding the Chicago Manual of Style: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/717/01/

  2. All text must be:

    • double-spaced and with Times New Roman font size 12

    • left justified with all margins at least 1 inch

    • if necessary, including footnotes entered with the word-processing programs

    • more than 3,000 words but not exceeding 6,000 words including charts, tables, figures, appendices, footnotes, and bibliographical notes.



  3. You may cite your work, but do not use wording that identifies you as the manuscript's author.

  4. Your name should appear only on the title page.

  5. You should also include a 100-word abstract in English (only in English even though your full article may be written in Spanish or Portuguese) following the title page to help the journal locate external reviewers.

  6. The Journal does not allow multiple submissions. Decisions are generally made in 10 weeks of receipt. Manuscripts are subjected to blind reviews. If your manuscript is accepted for publication, you will be expected to obtain permission to reproduce any copyrighted materials (e.g., photographs) used in your article.‚Äč
