To ensure blind peer-review for submissions to MLO, the identities of the authors and reviewers should not be revealed.
Authors of submissions should check that they have deleted their names from the text, with "Author" and year used in the references and footnotes, instead of the authors' name, article title, etc. Please also ensure that any identifying 'properties' have been removed from the Word document itself.
