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 under consideration for publication elsewhere (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).

  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The submission has been approved by all co-authors.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); maximum of 3 levels of headings; and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

  • The text of the submission does not include author name or affiliation (in view of double-blind review).

Author Guidelines

General

Please ensure that you consider the following guidelines when preparing your manuscript. Failure to do so may delay the processing of your submission. 

Manuscripts should consist of original, unpublished material and are not being submitted for publication elsewhere simultaneously. Furthermore, manuscripts submitted to JHTR are received under the condition that all co-authors are aware of, and agree with, the submission. All research articles will be subject to anonymous peer review. 

JHTR commits to diversity and inclusion. We expect the references in submitted articles to reflect this.

All material to be considered for publication in JHTR should be submitted electronically through this website. Submission by e-mail will not be accommodated. Once submitted, the author can track the submission and communicate with the editors via the online journal management system. Context-sensitive help and manuals are available in every workflow stage by clicking the  button in the upper right corner of the screen. 

Structure

The author(s) should submit two separate files: a manuscript file and, to guarantee anonymity, and a file including details of the author(s).

The manuscript file must include a cover page and a second page with the manuscript’s title and abstract (maximum 200 words). The manuscript should be written in English, preferably US spelling.

Each article should include a list of up to six specific keywords below the abstract. These will be used to index the article in search engines. 

The headings should be structured as follows (maximum 3 levels):

1.

1.1

1.1.1

To ensure the anonymity of the peer-review, the following information should be included in a separate file to the manuscript:

-full author name(s)
-affiliation(s)
-corresponding author’s email address
-author(s) short biography (150 words)

To ensure the anonymity of the peer-review process, no personal information about the author(s) should be presented elsewhere in the manuscript.

All references cited within the submission must be listed at the end of the main text file (APA style).

Before publication, the authors are provided with a proof of their paper with the aim to correct minor mistakes.

We expect that authors, before submitting their work to JHTR, have read in detail our ‘Aims and Scope' information, which can be found on our 'About the journal' page.
