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, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • 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.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines and follows the publication template provided.
  • In case of a paper, the paper itself is anonymized to enable a double-blind peer review process. The author details are submitted in a separate file.

Author Guidelines

There are two options for contributions to the Journal: papers or notes.

Both types of contributions are subject to peer review.
In all cases, authors should send in their manuscripts as Word-documents, following the template which can be found here.

This is a contribution of between 2,500 and 5,000 words (approximately). After receiving your paper, the editor will send it out for double-blind peer review by two reviewers. The reviewers remain anonymous to the authors, and the authors remain anonymous to the reviewers.Please make sure that your paper itself is submitted without identifying details and submit author details in a separate file.

The reviewers can indicate if they accept the paper (with minor changes), ask you to submit a new version with major changes, or reject the paper. Major considerations are:

  • The paper is written in English, in a clear and concise language that will help editors and reviewers concentrate on the scientific content of your paper.
  • The length is between 2,500 and 5,000 words (approximately). If you need more words, please briefly explain why.
  • The paper is relevant in the context of the EHC goals, which can be found here
  • The paper is not published elsewhere or submitted to a journal or book, or an explanation is provided in a message to the editor
  • The publication template is followed. References should follow the American Psychological Association (APA) (Seventh Edition) style in alphabetical order (info can be found here).

Edited note
This is a contribution of between 1,500 and 2,500 words (approximately), briefly summarizing (preliminary) findings or good practices. Notes receive a blind peer review. This means that the two reviewers remain anonymous to the authors, but the authors are known to the reviewers. Notes need to be written in English, in a clear and concise language that will help readers to concentrate on the content, which should be relevant in the context of the EHC goals. In addition, the publication template needs to be followed. References should follow the American Psychological Association (APA) (Seventh Edition) style in alphabetical order (info can be found here).


In the Journal, we do not use footnotes. We ask contributors to keep endnotes to a minimum. Contributions will be published in pdf-files.
