INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS
The Journal of Funeral Service Education is a peer reviewed journal dedicated to the dissemination of theoretical, pedagological, empirical, historical, and the holistic nature of funeral service education and practice. This Journal exists to serve the needs of funeral service educators.
Manuscripts of all lengths will be considered, from brief notes to monographs. Brief notes on methodology, instrumentation, or a replication study will be considered for publication. A manuscript is accepted for review with the understanding that no substantial portion of the manuscript has been published or is under consideration for publication elsewhere and that its submission for publication has been approved by all the authors and by the institution where the work was carried out and is free of copyright restrictions. Any person cited as a source of personal communications has approved such citation. Written authorization may be required at the editors’ discretion. Articles and any other materials published in the Journal of Funeral Service Education represent the opinions of the author(s) and should not be construed to reflect the opinions of the editor(s) or the publisher. Manuscripts that do not meet the general criteria or standards for publication in the Journal of Funeral Service Education will be immediately returned to the author(s), without detailed review. Upon acceptance of an article, the manuscript becomes property of the Journal of Funeral Service Education.
Preparation of Manuscript Authors should follow the instructions given in the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Manuscripts that do not adhere to these guidelines may be returned without benefit of editorial review. Manuscripts should be double-spaced throughout. Pages should be numbered consecutively and organized as follows:
The title page (p. 1) should contain the article title, authors' names and complete affiliations, and the address for manuscript correspondence (including e-mail address ,telephone and fax numbers). Authors should not place their names on the manuscript itself.
The abstract (p. 2) must be a single paragraph that summarizes the main findings of the paper in less than 150 words. References should be cited in the text by author's surname and the year of publication, e.g., Holland (1985); Super et al. (1963); Lofquist and Dawis (1984, p. 224) for references to a specific page. If a reference has more than two authors, the citation includes the surnames of all authors at the first mention, but later citations of the same reference include only the surname of the first author and the abbreviation "et al." Suffixes should be used following the date to distinguish two or more works by the same author(s) in the same year (e.g., Roe, 1979a, 1979b). Literature citations in the bibliography should be typed double-spaced and arranged alphabetically according to the surname of the author. Journal titles should be written out in full rather than abbreviated. Only articles that have been published or are in press should be included in the references. Unpublished results or personal communications should be cited as such in the text.
Color pictures, graphs and diagrams will be considered for publication.
