Contributions should be submitted in English. If authors are not native English speakers and are uncertain about the quality of their writing, their work should be edited for language by a native English speaker prior to submission. Contributions should be formatted as A4 Microsoft Word files (Mac files must be converted), double-spaced and with ample margins. All pages, including those containing only diagrams and tables, should be numbered consecutively. Biographical information of up to 60 words should be included on the title page, indicating authors’ institutional affiliation, representative writings, and email addresses.
It is the responsibility of the author to obtain permission to reproduce any illustrations that may be subject to copyright, and sources should be indicated appropriately in the accompanying captions. The use of figures (diagrams, charts, graphs) and tables should be kept to a minimum, with only essential data presented. Each should be numbered consecutively, titled, and mentioned in the main text. Tables must contain editable text. Figures should be supplied as separate *editable* files where possible (preferably in EPS, Illustrator or Excel format) and not in colour. Picture files or jpegs are unsuitable for figures, but can be supplied for photographs if they are of good quality. Mathematical formulations should be kept to a minimum. Equation editing programs should not be used for anything that can simply be typed on the keyboard in Word (such as a2 + b2 = c2). Endnotes should be numbered consecutively and placed before the bibliography. Bibliographical references should be checked for accuracy.
Authors’ full addresses and other contact information including email, fax, and telephone number should be included in a separate A4 Microsoft Word file. One photo of the author should be provided (of the first author, if the contribution is coauthored), which will appear in the journal on the article’s title page.
