Philosophy of Intellectus

For more information, please see Intellectus Aims and Scope

Who Can Submit?

The primary author must be a current or past student at A.T. Still University, School of Osteopathic Medicine.

Anyone may submit an original article to be considered for publication in Intellectus provided they own the copyright to the work being submitted or are authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors are the initial owners of the copyrights to their work. Of note, there may be exceptions to this in the non-academic world if the authors have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer.

General Submission Rules

Submitted articles cannot be previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Please note: "publication" in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to Intellectus, the author stipulates that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that they will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at Intellectus. For any concerns about the submission terms for Intellectus, please contact the editors.

Formatting Requirements

Intellectus has no general rules about the formatting of articles upon initial submission. There are, however, rules governing the formatting of the final submission. Please see Author's Checklist for details. Although bepress can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to produce an electronic version of the article as either a high-quality PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) file, or as a Microsoft Word, WordPerfect or RTF file that can be converted into a PDF file.

It is understood that the current technology behind of Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) prevents any guarantees that documents published in PDF will be fully compatible with all possible hardware and software configurations that readers may have.
