How do I submit something that I want considered for publication?

Send your manuscript, after you have checked it carefully, as an attachment to an email, to: Jdavis9@coastal.edu

What happens after I submit something to be considered for publication?

If your submission makes it through our blind reviews and is accepted for publication, you will be made aware.  You will have the opportunity to accept our offer and then complete and submit the required paperwork.  If your submission is not accepted, we will also advise you.  If we suggest or require edits, we will also communicate that with all authors.
