SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi all, I am currently in the process of submitting my manuscript for publication and have found a journal that would be an excellent fit for research topic. Problem is that they have a required maximum length of 30 pages (pretty much including everything) Does anybody here have experience how to handle this? The topic of my paper is combining three distinct research areas and it was already a pain to get it down to the length of where I am right now I don't know if it helps but here is a break down: Title page and abstract (not part of 30 pg limit) Body 24 pages References 7.5 pages ( I know very long but again, I am combining several distinct research areas) Tables (3 pages) Graphs (4 pages) I could probably cut down the body of my paper by another page or so (if at all). I can't really do anything about the reference section or the tables. Not sure how essential the graphs are as I am describing the data in the paper, but graphs are really helpful in this case. Of course, they want the paper to be in APA format. I feel a little dumb asking this question, but not even my adviser had a good answer for me.
