How to Submit

Life Journal (WH & UL) is a representation that the manuscript has not been published previously and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. A statement transferring copyright from the authors to the WH & UL Journal will be required before the manuscript can be accepted for publication. Since the review process requires a lot of time and resources, we find the simultaneous submission of the same manuscript to numerous journals while it is under review at the WH & UL professionally unacceptable.


TITLE PAGE:
For the peer review process, authors should include a separate title page with their names and full university affiliations, addresses and e-mails, but should make sure that no other identifying reference to themselves occurs in the text. A short note not more than 50-100 words for each author should also be included.


ABSTRACT:
An abstract not more than 100-150 words should appear on a separate page. A list of key-words, and a suggested running-head for not more than 70 characters (including the spaces) should also be provided.


MANUSCRIPT SPECIFICATIONS:
Manuscripts should be submitted in original typescript (minimum 12points), double spaced, on standard typing paper (8 ½ by 11), with at least one inch margins on four sides of the page. The maximum length of a manuscript is 25 pages, including the abstract, tables, figures and references. We urge the readers to closely observe the length requirement since longer manuscripts will be excluded from the publication process.


TABLES AND FIGURES:
All tables and figures must be prepared in a camera-ready form and should appear on separate pages. Center the title above the table, and type explanatory footnotes (indicated by superscript lower-case letters) below the table. Tables are to be numbered with Roman numerals. Figures (illustrations, photographs, drawings, diagrams, and charts) are to be numbered in one consecutive series of Arabic numerals, and the title should appear below the figure.


FOOTNOTES:
Footnotes should be avoided. When their use is absolutely necessary, footnotes should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals. For the final version, authors should NOT use the automatic foot/endnote commands of their word-processors. The places of the footnotes in the text should be clearly identified with a double pound sign and the appropriate number (##1).


LANGUAGE, REFERENCES AND FOOTNOTES:
WH & UL is a feminist journal that is committed to the equal treatment of the sexes in research. References should conform to the American Psychological Association's (APA, 4th edition) Publication Manual style.

REVIEW PROCESS AND FINAL VERSION:
Articles will be peer reviewed and authors will be informed about the reviewer's comments and will be asked to revise their manuscript. The final decision of acceptance or non-acceptance belongs to the general editor. In case of an acceptance for publication, author(s) are required to revise and proof-read their manuscript and send a hard-copy as well as an IBM compatible electronic disk to the editor. Label the disk with identifying information: type of software, journal name, and first author's last name. The disk must be the one from which the accompanying manuscript (finalized version) was printed out. The Editor's Office cannot accept a disk without its accompanying, matching hard?copy manuscript. In the final version, no hidden software commands should be used (i.e., no footnote, end-note commands, font changes and other hidden commands) except the "underline" function. When papers are accepted for publication, each author will be asked to sign an acceptance form assigning copyright to the WH & UL Journal and subscribing to the journal for a year.


PROOFS:
Authors will be sent the proofs of their articles. At this point of the publication process, only very minor changes and typographical corrections are allowed.
