A double-blind review process is followed rigorously. Manuscripts are reviewed by members of the editorial board and/or other professional specialists representing all topical areas dealt with in PALAESTRA. Manuscripts are accepted for review and consideration on the condition they have not been published previously, submitted simultaneously, or accepted for publication elsewhere. PALAESTRA will consider manuscripts rejected by other journals. There are no page or illustration charges.

Terminology

Terminology throughout PALAESTRA conforms to current accepted usage. Focus is on people, not disabilities, i.e.. students who are blind, athletes with spinal cord injuries, participants who are mentally retarded. Reference is to individuals with disabilities, not handicaps, handicapping conditions or impairments. Authors should apply this policy in their manuscripts.

Guidelines

The following guidelines are to assist authors in preparing manuscripts to be considered through the PALAESTRA review and editorial processes:

* Deal with any topic associated with sport, physical education, recreation, dance, and related areas involving participants with disabilities, each interpreted and applied in its broadest way.

* Submit all manuscripts in English.

* Make the manuscript no longer than 12 to 15 double spaced pages, with illustrations, (8 1/2" x 11" with margins of at least one inch). Include an abstract of approximately 100 words.

* Follow American Psychological Association (APA) style of documentation within the text and for references.
