Submission Guidelines

All articles, notes, comments, and book reviews must be submitted electronically to www.editorialmanager.com/TransJour. Articles are received with the understanding that they have not been either published or submitted for review elsewhere. For more information, please e-mail the coeditors, Evelyn Thomchick at ethomchick@ psu.edu and Tom Goldsby at Goldsby.2@ osu.edu, or call at 1-814-863-3567. For questions about book reviews, please contact Deepak Iyengar at IyengarD@cwu.edu. For questions about industry notes, please contact Mary C. Holcomb at mholcomb@ utk.edu.

Adherence to the following guidelines will facilitate the publication of articles after they undergo the review process.

1. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word format (Times New Roman font, size 12, flush left, double spaced). Printed copy submissions or submissions in other digital formats will not be accepted. Pages must be numbered. Length of text (not including tables, fi gures, endnotes, and references) should be within the range of 3000–6000 words. The manuscript must be accompanied by an abstract of 100–200 words, which clearly states the principal conclusions of the article.

2. Documents should not contain automated formatting. The following represent some examples of formatting that should be avoided:

A. No function of “Track Changes” should be in use.
B. The “Style” field should read “Normal” throughout the text.
C. The article title should be set flush left (do not tab or format an indent).
D. The “tab” key should be used for paragraph indentation, not the paragraph indent function or the space bar.
E. Headings should not have bold type but should be set off with line spaces (subheads may be placed in italic to distinguish them from a full heading).
F. Do not use automated lists. All numbers or bullets must be keyed.
G. The N-dash should be used for inclusive numbers, not a hyphen.
H. Epigraphs and extractions from other published works should be set off with line spacing. Do not format an indent.

3. Tables, figures, charts, and photos must be submitted as a separate file from the article text with an indication in the text for placement, i.e., [Table 1], [Figure 2], [Photo 3]. They must be submitted in the original format at the size the author would like them to appear.

A. Tables should be submitted in Word.
B. Charts and graphs should be submitted in Excel.
C. Digital images should be submitted in either .tiff, .eps, or .jpeg fi les at 300 dpi in order for the images to be print-worthy.
D. All Digital files should be grey scale.

4. Endnotes are used to elaborate on information presented in the article text. If endnotes are used, they must be numbered consecutively throughout the article and be indicated by superscript numerals following the punctuation. The endnote numbers at the end of the article should not be superscript text and should be a number followed by a period. All endnote entries must be double-spaced at the end of the article and must appear before references. If it is necessary to cite a source or sources pertaining to a particular endnote, citation formation must be identical to that used for references (see #5 below).

5. Manuscripts must consistently conform to The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition (CMS). Examples of reference citations for journal articles and books are shown below. For more examples, please check CMS.

A. Books and journals in the text: Reference citations in the article must be enclosed in parentheses as follows: (Author 2000, 3); (Poist and Alen 1999; Murphy 2000, 48–51).
B. Books and journals in the reference list: References citing source materials must be listed at the end of the article and must include, in order, the following information:
Journal: Author last name, first name. Year of publication. “Title of article.” Title of journal Volume(issue):page numbers.
Books: Author last name, first name. Year of publication. Title of Book, city: name of publisher.
For other types of citations, please check the CMS.

6. Manuscripts must consistently conform to the current edition of The Chicago Manual of Style (CMS). References should follow author-date documentation. Examples of reference citations for journal articles and books are shown below. For more examples, please check CMS.

A. Books and journals in the text: Reference citations in the article must be enclosed in parentheses and listed in alphabetical order as follows: (Author 2000, 3); (Murphy 2000, 48–51; Poist and Allen 1999).
B. Books and journals in the reference list: References citing source materials must be listed at the end of the article and must include, in order, the following information:
Journal: Author last name, first name initial. Year of publication. “Title of article.” Title of journal Volume(issue):page numbers.
Books: Author last name, first name initial. Year of publication. Title of Book, city: name of publisher.
For other types of citations, please check the CMS.

7. Industry Notes is a section of the Transportation Journal intended for articles with an emphasis on transportation, logistics, and supply chain topics that are managerially relevant and timely. Industry Notes should be a thesis-driven exploration of a topic. In most cases, except for conceptual-based research, the exploration would involve the collection, compilation, and analysis of data to make original observations, to show relationships between the data, and to make conclusions that would add to the existing knowledge of the topic/subject. To this end, papers submitted as Industry Notes are expected to utilize a variety of methodological approaches. Research that examines new areas and/or the study of traditional approaches in different perspectives is also appropriate for Industry Notes. Industry Notes should be approximately 3000 words in length and should follow the style guidelines of the Transportation Journal.

8. Book reviews should be approximately 750 words in length. The review must be headed by the following information: title of publication; name of author or editor; publisher; publisher’s address; date of publication; number of pages; ISBN number (if available in both hardcover and paperback, indicate numbers for both); and selling price(s). The text of the review must be double-spaced. The reviewer’s name, full professional title, employer affiliation, and address must be indicated at the end of the review.
