  1. Click the “Author Agreement” link below to fill out submission information and upload your final format file. The final format file will include your paper, any images and tables, and a list of figures and tables. Combine your paper and image files into one file before uploading.  Label the file with your last name and a few words of your title. Read section 3 below for more detailed information. 
  1. Have your faculty sponsor fill out the “Statement of Support & Faculty Signature.” The forms do not have to be completed at the same time, but submissions will not be accepted without both of the forms being submitted.
  1. Submit images and text on separate, labeled pages within one file. Place your paper first, and then subsequent pages should have the corresponding support documents, clearly labeled (e.g. Photo 1; Table 4a, etc.). Call outs should appear in the appropriate locations in the text of the papers (e.g. Figure 1 about here). On a separate page, provide a list of all tables and images; in this list, include a title for each table and a caption for each image or figure.  Copyright clear photos and figures should be submitted as .jpg at 300 dpi resolution or higher.

Note:  It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that they have the right to publish any images provided.  If photos include human subjects, an image release may be required.  Questions can be addressed to the editor at chssjournal@shsu.edu.
