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 the Cover Letter to the Editor).
- The submission files include a Cover Letter and an original Research Article, both using the ReScience templates and submitted as both source (OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, LaTeX, etc) and PDF files.
- The Cover Letter follows the ReScience template, and includes a URL to an OSF project (https://osf.io), its preregistration, used to gather all files, material, documents and links to online repositories used in the work submitted, and a list of at least 3 reviewers.
- 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.
