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.
For Authors: I have downloaded the URNCST Journal Manuscript Template, and I have ensured that my completed manuscript adheres to the guidelines as outlined in the "Instructions for Authors" webpage.
For Conference Planners: I have downloaded the URNCST Journal Abstract Conference Book Template, and I have ensured that my completed manuscript adheres to the guidelines as outlined in the "Instructions for Conference Planners" webpage.
I understand that while there is no fee associated with my submission, in the case of acceptance, my co-author(s) and/or I will be responsible for the agreed upon publication fee, if any, levied by the URNCST Journal.
If you are an undergraduate student submitting a manuscript, please ensure that you have first read the Instructions for Authors and downloaded the correct manuscript template prior to beginning the submission process. Please note that the Journal typically only publishes articles written by individual undergraduate researchers if they were selected to submit an article at a research conference that had their abstract book published by the URNCST Journal OR full articles resulting from abstracts accepted from the URNCST Journal Mentored Paper or the URNCST Journal Research Methods Primer. Unsolicited manuscript submissions may be considered on a case-by-case basis, however, authors MUST first contact the editor at [email protected] to discuss the suitability of the article submission and receive approval before making a submission. Unsolicited manuscript submissions that have not been approved by the editor will be subject to immediate rejection.
