- 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 CISR editorial board acknowledges that English is a global language with multiple varieties. In the editorial process, we aim to respect the variety of English that authors wish to use, regardless of the author’s first language. To this end, in the submission process, we ask authors to indicate the approach to editing that they would like for us to use. With your submission, please note in Comments to the Editor one of the following three options:
- Language: In this approach, we focus editing on grammar, vocabulary use, punctuation, typographical errors, etc.
- Style: In this approach, we focus editing on the way authors explain their ideas and arguments in writing, particularly areas where style may get in the way of communicating authors’ intended meaning.
- Both language and style: All of the above
