The Submission Process

When submitting your initial manuscript, send:

— One (1) single manuscript file (which includes manuscript text, tables, figure captions and figures).

— Cover letter to editor (email to rundellmollusca@gmail.com)

— Contact the editor to determine how to submit the manuscript if file sizes exceed 10 MB.

— You should receive a confirmation letter with an identifying manuscript number within ten (10) working days.

— If you do not receive a confirmation letter within that timeframe, please contact the business manager at malacologia@gardner-webb.edu.

Once the manuscript is accepted, you must provide high resolution graphic files (TIFFs) to the advisory editor Dr. Paula Mikkelsen at pmm37@cornell.edu.

— For other file formats or any questions regarding the electronic submission of graphics, contact the advisory editor.

— Keep individual file sizes below 10 MB.

— Use the “LZW compression option” which will greatly reduce TIFF file sizes.
