Papers should be double-spaced, in 12 point font, Times New Roman. Accepted papers are usually about 6,000-8,000 words long. However, we are willing to consider manuscripts as long as 12,000 words (and even more under very special circumstances). All self-identifying marks should be removed from the article itself to facilitate blind review. In addition to the article itself, an abstract should be submitted as a separate file (also devoid of author-identifying information). Submissions should be made in Word doc format. 

Elements of Style

1. Submissions should be in English, on consecutively numbered pages. Both American and UK spellings are acceptable as long as they adhere consistently to one or the other pattern.

2. Citations should be made in author-date format. A reference list of all works cited should be placed at the end of the article. 

The reference style is as follows:

Author, A.B. (2013). Title. Journal, 1(1): 1-10.

Author, C.D., Author, B., and Author, C.C. (2013). Title. In: Author, J.E., Author, B. (Eds.) Title. City: Press, pp. 1-10.

Author, E.F. (2008). Title. City: Publisher.

3. All notes should be as end notes. 

4. No mathematical formulae in main text (but acceptable in notes or as an appendix).

An example of a fully formated article will be made available to consult.
