Abstract Language Options

Articles and abstracts must be in American English, but the journal accepts additional abstracts in other languages of the author’s choice (for instance in the author’s first language, if not English or the journal's official language). Such abstracts are optional. Authors would need to supply such abstracts themselves, certify that they are a faithful translation of the official abstract, and they must be supplied in Unicode (see www.unicode.org for details), especially if they are using non-roman characters.


Such abstracts in other languages will carry a disclaimer:"This abstract is provided by the author(s), and is for convenience of the users only. The author certifies that the translation faithfully represents the official version in the language of the journal, which is the published Abstract of record and is the only Abstract to be used for reference and citation."
