INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS
The manuscript, including captions, tables, and references, must be typed double-spaced with 1-inch margins in a 12-point font. Manuscripts should not exceed 7,000 words of text. They should include a cover sheet noting title, authors, authors’ contact information and institutional affiliations. An abstract of 100-150 words, followed by 3 or more keywords, must be included with all submissions. All manuscripts should follow the guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA). All citation should be done in American Psychological Association (APA) style with reference list organized in alphabetical order by author. Please see the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (most recent edition) for specific citation and reference list instructions. Submission to Youth & Society implies that the manuscript has not been published elsewhere, nor is it under consideration by another journal.
We do not publish appendices or photographs of any kind. In addition, we do not use footnotes. All relevant information should be included in the text, tables, or figures.
All submissions should be entered into our manuscript web-based tracking system at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/youthsoc
Manuscripts will be assigned a manuscript number, and authors will receive email confirmation acknowledging receipt of submission. Inquiries for the journal should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Each submitted manuscript will be reviewed in the editorial office to determine appropriateness for the journal. Manuscripts sent out for external review will be sent to three reviewers for evaluation. Decisions may be made with fewer reviewers to insure timely editorial decisions. Every effort will be made to provide authors responses within three months and no more than six months from submission.
Terminology. Authors are asked not to use the term subjects when referring to research participants. Alternative terms such as respondents, research participants, or some other more specific designation (e.g., youths, females, residents) should be used.
Tables and Figures. All tables should be cited sequentially in text, numbered, and supplied with explanatory captions. Table columns should have explanatory headings. Tables should be included at the end of the document. Tables and figures should not be typed within the body of the manuscript. All figures must be cited in the text, numbered, and supplied with a caption. No more than a total of 4 tables and figures should be used in manuscripts.
Submissions in English. All manuscripts should be in English. Authors who want to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider utilizing the services of SPi, a non-affiliated company that offers Professional Editing Services to authors of journal articles in the areas of science, technology, medicine or the social sciences. SPi specializes in editing and correcting English-language manuscripts written by authors with a primary language other than English. Visit http://www.prof-editing.com for more information about SPi’s Professional Editing Services, pricing, and turn-around times, or to obtain a free quote or submit a manuscript for language polishing. Please note that SAGE has no affiliation with SPi and makes no endorsement of the company. An author’s use of SPi’s services in no way guarantees that his or her submission will ultimately be accepted. Any arrangement an author enters into will be exclusively between the author and SPi, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author.
Proofs will be supplied to authors to check the accuracy of typesetting and copyediting. Authors may be charged for excessive alterations to the proofs.
Copyright Agreement. Since January 1978 a new U.S. copyright law became effective requiring explicit transfer of copyright from authors to the publisher (Sage). The Youth & Society copyright agreement form must be signed by each author before we can publish their manuscript. The copyright agreement only needs to be signed by the authors once the paper is accepted for publication.
It is the author’s responsibility to obtain written permission and defray all fees for the use of any quotes over 300 words from previously published academic material; non-original photographs, figures, or tables or any portion thereof, exclusive of data; and quotes of any length from newspapers, magazines, poems, songs, and anything broadcast over radio or television. Without a copy of written permission on file with the publisher, the quote cannot be used.
