Before you submit your manuscript, make sure you have done the following:
a) ensured that your submission is no longer than 12 pages including references
b) clearly indicated from the onset that your submission is a pilot study, a policy brief, or an action research that only tackles a specific issue/problem (given the page limit)
c) managed to clearly and briefly describe study methods and data collection (if relevant), include some short data sets and possibly 1-2 short tables (if relevant).
d) created an appendix for additional illustrations, samples of research tools (clearly labeled titles for each appendix, and references made in the text for each apprendix)
