Athletic Insight - The Online Journal of Sport Psychology

Instructions for Authors

       In preparing manuscripts for publication in Athletic Insight, authors should indicate that their manuscript is original work. Additionally, all research involving human subjects should be pre-approved by their research ethics board. This approval should be written into the manuscript. Manuscripts must not be submitted to another journal while under consideration with AI. Finally, it should be noted that if there are multiple authors, all authors are in agreement regarding the ordering of authorship.

       Authors should adhere to the guidelines in the Publication Manual of the APA (5th ed., 2001). Copies are found in most university libraries or may be obtained through the Order Department, American Psychological Association, P.O. Box 2710, Hyattsville, MD 20784-0710. All articles must be preceded by an abstract, not to exceed 150 words, typed on a separate page. Special attention should be given to the preparation and accuracy of references. The manuscript should be double-spaced, including the abstract, references, and any block quotations. Line numbering starting at number 1 should be used on each page. Manuscripts are subject to editing to eliminate sexist and biased language.

       Manuscripts should be submitted electronically. Manuscripts should be sent as an attachment compatible with Microsoft Word or Word Perfect (for PC, preferably). Submissions should have two attachments, an original manuscript and a blind copy of the manuscript. The original should include a cover sheet including name of author(s), institutional affiliation(s), running head, date of submission, and full mailing address, telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address of the corresponding author. The blind copy should omit the authors' name and affiliation from the title page, and any author notes or footnotes that identify the author should be removed. Submit all research manuscripts to [email protected].

       If it is impossible to submit manuscripts electronically, mail one copy of the original copy and a disk version of original and blind copies of the manuscript in Microsoft Word or Word Perfect (for PC, preferably). Manuscripts should be sent to Miguel Humara, Ph.D., Chief of Staff, Behavioral Associates, 114 E. 90th Street, Suite 1A, New York, NY 10128. Authors are advised to check carefully the typing of the final copy and to retain a copy of the manuscript to guard against loss. Manuscripts will not be returned to authors. Manuscripts are read by three reviewers, with the review process taking 8-12 weeks. There are no page charges to contributors. Authors of manuscripts accepted for publication must transfer copyright to Athletic Insight, Inc.

       Articles generally should not exceed 30 pages, including figures, tables, and references. They will be judged according to their applied focus, contributions to knowledge, presentation of information, appropriateness of the discussion, interpretation of ideas, and clarity of writing. In addition, articles will be judged on their methodology/design and data analysis. Authors are expected to have their raw data and descriptive statistics available throughout the editorial review process and are responsible for providing elaboration upon request. Submissions from staff members will be externally reviewed in order to arrive at a conclusion regarding the manuscript's status.
