Journal of Multidisciplinary Research
Volume 5, Number 3, Fall 2013
Deadline for Submission: August 5, 2013 * Scheduled for Publication: September 2013
The mission of the Journal of Multidisciplinary Research is to promote excellence in leadership practice by providing a venue for academics, students, and practitioners to publish current and significant empirical and conceptual research in the arts, humanities, sciences (applied, natural, and social), and other areas that tests, extends, or builds leadership theory.
This special issue will focus on research related to sexual deviance. Articles should make empirical contributions and be relevant to the applied disciplines of psychology, psychiatry, criminal justice, law, sociology and social work. The best submissions are those that identify both a compelling multidisciplinary issue and a strong theoretical framework for addressing it.
Criteria for Publication
The Journal of Multidisciplinary Research (JMR) seeks to publish authors who strive to produce original, insightful, interesting, important, and theoretically bold research. Demonstration of a significant “value-added” contribution to the field’s understanding of an issue or topic is crucial to acceptance for publication.
Authors should write manuscripts as simply and concisely as possible, without sacrificing meaningfulness or clarity of exposition. The journal editor-in-chief will evaluate manuscripts in terms of their contribution-to-length ratio; i.e., he or she may permit manuscripts that make strong contributions more pages than those making narrower contributions.
Manuscripts should be no more than 26, double-spaced pages (justified, one-inch margins all around, half-inch indent, in Times New Roman 12-point font, using active voice), including an abstract (up to 200 words), keywords (up to seven terms), references, discussion questions (up to five), and relevant tables, figures (in their correct position in the text, not separate and not at the end of the manuscript), and appendixes. At his or her own discretion, the editor-in-chief may allow additional space for papers that make very extensive contributions or that require additional space for data presentation or references (such as meta-analyses, qualitative works, and work using multiple data sets).
To submit a manuscript for consideration

(3) E-mail by August 5, 2013, to the JMR Fall Issue Guest Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTE: While not required, prospective authors may send abstracts or proposals by May 20, 2013.
