January 5, 2022 – The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal (CPCJ) recently made changes to the author guidelines. Minor changes throughout were designed to simplify the author instructions. One substantial change is moving to strictly follow AMA referencing style. This impacts NEW submissions only (that is, new papers uploaded as of January 1, 2022).

In addition, we have also clarified the manuscript types we accept, any requirements and limitations (i.e. word limits and what that includes, as well as structured or unstructured abstract); materials you should have on hand before submitting; image quality and formats accepted; information that needs to be included on the title page; and more.

Please be sure to review the updated author guidelines here before submitting to the journal. Thank you for considering CPCJ for your upcoming research.
