Manuscript Submission

Wiley publishes journals across a wide range of disciplines. To learn more, we recommend visiting Wiley Online Library, where you can browse journals alphabetically, by subject area or by keyword.

Many journals now offer manuscript submission via ScholarOneTM Manuscripts, formerly known as Manuscript Central. Please review the Author Guidelines for a specific journal to learn about its submission requirements and determine if the journal accepts manuscripts via ScholarOne Manuscripts. Use the Author Guidelines by Journal link from the section at right to view guidelines for your chosen journals. Wiley journal citation formats are contained within Endnote and Reference Manager, and can be downloaded here.
