Submit a Manuscript to CPT

Submit your manuscript via eJournalPress, CPT’s online submission and peer-review site. Authors are strongly encouraged to read the Author Guidelines prior to submission to ensure that potential submissions are within the scope of the journal and adhere to submission requirements.  CPT does not consider animal studies or case studies.  If submitted, these papers will be triaged.

Prior to submitting your manuscript, please verify that you have provided all of the information listed in the Submission Checklist and formatted your paper to follow the Sample Manuscript Template.  Please gather all author names, affiliations, and contributions; manuscript title; abstract; author contributions; word, table and figures counts; and any conflicts of interest. Once your manuscript files are ready to be submitted according to the Guide to Authors, please proceed to the online submission system.

CPT strives to provide authors with a timely decision so that declined submissions may be promptly submitted elsewhere for consideration.

Submission Turn time 
• An initial decision will be provided within 7-10 days of submission.
• If selected for review, you will receive a decision within 4-6 weeks.

Editorial Policy on Proper Citation
• All submissions are verified for proper citation of information or data taken from published sources.  Duplicate publication, which occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her own published work without providing the appropriate references, is not permitted.  Material not properly cited is cause for rejection. 

If you have questions regarding submission, please contact the Editorial Office.

Thank you for choosing to submit your manuscript to CPT.
