Contributors are asked to follow the style in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th ed., 2020, and to consult Appendix A, Checklist for Manuscript Submission, in the Manual as a guide. One exception to the style in the 7th edition is that AJP will continue to use the style from the previous edition for multiple (but fewer than six) authors in a citation:
For 3–5 authors: list all names on first use, then First author last name et al.

Everything should be double-spaced—abstract, text, references, notes, captions.

Please include all statistical indices, descriptive and inferential, required for evaluation of your experimental findings.

The abstract should not exceed 250 words.

Special mathematical symbols and abbreviations should be identified.

All elements in a figure should be large enough to be readable when the drawing is reduced to fit the maximum width of 11 cm. Figures should be submitted as .TIF or .JPG files with a resolution of at least 300 dpi.

All titles in the reference list should be spelled out rather than abbreviated.

References cited in the text should agree with those in the reference list.

A copy of the letter of permission for the use of previously published material (e.g., long extracts and reproductions of figures) should be included.

The submitted manuscript should not be under concurrent review elsewhere.
