Authors submitting papers for publication should specify which section of the journal they wish their paper to be considered for: 'Academic Papers', 'Practice Papers', or 'Research Notes and Reports.' Papers submitted for publication in the 'Academic Papers' section will be subject to peer review by at least two reviewers. Papers submitted as a Practice Paper or Research Notes and Reports will normally be reviewed by a member of the Editorial Committee.
Academic Papers should normally be between 4000 to 6000 words and Practice Papers between 2000 and 3000 words in length. Manuscripts should be submitted in English, using UK spellings.
The first page of the manuscript should include a brief title and the author's name, affiliation, address, telephone and fax numbers and email address. A short biography of the author (about 75 words) should also be included. In the case of co-authors, the same details should also be included. All correspondence will be sent to the first named author, unless otherwise indicated.
The second page should contain the title of the paper, an abstract, outlining the aims and subject matter of not more than 100 words in length, and up to six key words.
The paper should begin on the third page and should not subsequently reveal the title or authors. The paper should be sub-divided into headed sections. Section headings should be in upper case and underlined, while sub-section headings should be in upper and lower case and underlined.
Footnotes and endnotes should be avoided.
Where acronyms are used, their full expression should be given initially.
Authors should ensure that the work submitted for publication is their own.
Authors should ensure that their work is not libellous..
Figures, tables and other line illustrations should be kept to a minimum. Each should be numbered and titled, with tables numbered consecutively and independently of any figures. Each of these should be provided on separate pages with an indication in the text of where they should appear. All columns should have explanatory headings.
Quotations - if the quotation is less than 2/3 lines, then it should be included in the main text enclosed in single quotation marks. If the quotation is more than 2/3 lines, then it should be separated from the main text and indented.
Academic Papers must be supported by references using the Harvard style in line with the following examples.
References in the text should be cited by the author's name and year of publication in brackets e.g. (Airey, 1999 ). Where there are two or more references to one author for the same year, the following form should be used: (Airey, 1999a), (Airey, 1999b). Where references include three or more authors the form (Airy et al., 1999) should be used. When citing a web page, adopt the same conventions. If the author (individual or organisation) is not clear use the first few words or the page title e.g. (Abolish Politicians, no date).
A full list of references including all authors in alphabetical order should be given at the end of the paper.
References should conform to the following convention:
