Who Can Submit?

Any Undergraduate student enrolled within PSU may submit an original article to be considered for publication in Anthós provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article.

Formatting Requirements

Anthós requires that papers are submitted as a Microsoft Word document. See Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for details. Although bepress can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to produce an electronic version of the article as a high-quality Microsoft Word file.
