A PDF is going to be readable no matter what platform it is received on. Look to submission rules, but I would think the last thing you would want to do is to send a Mac fanatic a .doc file.

PDFs can't be edited, which is both good and bad. If you want something in an editable configuration, go with RTF. RTF also works on every platform out of the box, PDFs often require a special download.
