Articles should be between 3 to 7 pages, double-spaced and referenced (if scholarly) using the APA format. Shorter or longer articles will be considered and articles may be edited if necessary.

You need to include a statement from author that the submission is his/her sole work and that the article has not been published elsewhere; and author owns copyright of article or has authority to grant Dr. Taylor the right to publish the article.

  • Articles may appear on the website at Dr. Taylor’s discretion.
  • There is no deadline for articles because the site is updated regularly.
  • Articles will typically be posted for a month and then be posted in our Archives indefinitely afterwards.
  • All articles should be sent to: cataylor1st@charter.net
