1. Articles should be submitted in the required template in MS Word format (click here to download) with the following elements:

  1. Title
  2. Author(s) with institutional affiliation(s)
  3. Abstract (not to exceed 300 words)
  4. Key words do not exceed 5
  5. Body of the paper  
  6. Subsections should be numbered 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc. 
  7. Figures, illustrations, diagrams, and/or tables should be positioned in an appropriate place in the body of the paper with captions and, if appropriate, credits (numbered consecutively as cited in the body of the paper)
  8. Acknowledgements
  9. References
  10. Rights clearance declaration in which the author(s) state(s): "Each photograph and illustration is either my/our intellectual property or I/we have received permission from the copyright holder to use it." 

2. Footnotes should be kept to a minimum. For citations, authors are required to use the SDH Stylesheet. Only works cited in the body and footnotes should be included in (h) references. Authors are encouraged to use a reference manager system (Zotero, EndNote, etc.) in order to keep their reference style consistent in the text, footnotes, and references. You may download the document giving the SDH Citation Style here.

3. Authors are encouraged to publish interactive 3D models when appropriate to the topic. The journal supports WebGL services such as Sketchfab and 3DHop as well as Unity WebGL players. The models should be positioned within the Body of the article in a way analogous to a figure, diagram, etc.

4. If Sketchfab is used, include the embed code. If not, SDH will provide the web hosting and thus 3D models should be submitted in FBX, OBJ or PLY format with related textures and metadata/paradata.

5. The journal does not charge an article processing or submission fee.
