Format of submissions

Contributions should be between 2,000 and 5,000 words in length.

Submissions should be typewritten in English, double line spaced on A4 or US letter paper, and submitted in MS

Word format or a compatible software file.

You will be required to submit a minimum of two documents, containing the following elements:

1. Author information file:

  • the title of the article
  • a short running title of no more than 40 characters (including spaces)
  • the author(s)' names and affiliations
  • a short biography of approximately 80 words for each author
  • contact details (including email, postal address, fax and telephone number) for the corresponding author.

2. Article file

  • the title of the article
  • a summary or abstract of not more than 200 words in length outlining the aims and subject matter
  • 3-6 keywords that describe your paper - for indexing and for web searches in your manuscript
  • the article in full, including references. Please make sure that this file does not contain any information identifying the author(s).

3. Any tables, figures, images, etc. as separate files

Please take care to create a title and an abstract that are direct and ‘reader-friendly’. The abstract should provide a review of the paper and not simply repeat the conclusions. Also, please ensure that the abstract page does not contain any information identifying the author(s), and that author names have been taken out of the ‘File’ ‘Properties’ screen in Word.
