All contributors are asked to provide a short cover letter which includes a brief biography and informs Kulumun: Journal of the Wollotuka Institute that relevant ethics and intellectual property clearances have been attained where applicable.

Any submissions which do not concur will be returned immediately to the author.

Email is sufficient to meet this requirement. As well, all contributors should state that they have copyright clearances where applicable.
