1. Email Addresses: Do you have a list of the correct email addresses for all manuscript authors? This information is necessary to confirm receipt, acceptance, and publishing information with all contributors.

2. Instructions for Authors and Peer Review Policy: Please be sure to read our instructions for authors and verify that all information has been included properly in your manuscript. Incorrect information or formatting will result in a substantial delay in publishing time.

3. Cover Letter and Peer Review Process: All submissions must be prefaced with a cover letter explaining the importance of your topic, its relevance to the main focus of our journal, FFHD, and elaborating on any applicable special circumstances. Your cover letter or submission email should also include the full names, titles, governing organization, and contact information for 4 or 5 qualified peers who may be selected to assist with the peer review process.

4. Manuscript Files and Attachments: All attachments must be included in the correct format. FFHD will not convert your files or reorganize incorrectly coordinated submissions. The preferred format for manuscript submissions is Microsoft Word .doc with figures and tables embedded in the designated area, as described in our instruction page for authors.

5. Publishing Fees: An article processing fee of $495 will apply for every submission to cover costs associated with publication. Once the author has received an emailed notification of general acceptance, payment must be completed within 7 days.  Article processing charge discounts or waivers may be applied on a case-by-case basis to authors with financial hardships. To apply for a waiver or discount, please contact the editorial team at editor.ffhd@gmail.com. A decision will be made within approximately 3 business days. Submission of the article to the journal may be delayed until a final fee for the author has been decided. However, the content of your article may assist in the editor’s decision. Any applicable article processing charge must be paid prior to publication.
