Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
Preparing your article file:
Please prepare your article in Microsoft Word, RTF or WordPerfect document file format. We cannot accept PDFs.
Where available, URLs for the references should be provided in the original manuscript in order to ease the review-process for the referees. Do not include author names or contact details.
The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
Use endnotes, not footnotes.
Do not include ‘track changes’.
Please present your article in the following order:
- Title: Subtitle
- Abstract (150 words max.)
- Keywords (3-10, alphabetical)
- Body text
How to prepare your anonymised manuscript:
- Remove author name(s) and institution(s).
- Remove acknowledgements.
- Remove biographies.
- With Microsoft Office documents, author identification should also be removed from the properties for the file (see under File in Word), by clicking on the following, beginning with File on the main menu of the Microsoft application: File > Save As > Tools (or Options with a Mac) > Security > Remove personal information from file properties on save > Save.
Preparing your cover sheet:
To accompany your article you should prepare a cover sheet. This sheet enables the journal administrators to de-anonymise your paper on acceptance. Your cover sheet should include:
- Article title
- For each author: name, institution, biography (up to 150 words each)
- Contact details for publication
- Contact details for correspondence
Lengthy quotations (over 40 words) should be displayed and indented in the text. Please use single quotation marks (double within).
- US spelling must be used.
- Dates should be in the form ‘23 January 2007’.
- Delete points from ‘USA’ and other such abbreviations.
- Delete points from contractions such as Dr.
Tables and Figures:
Each table requires a short, descriptive title, and column headings should clearly define the data presented. If necessary, suitably identified footnotes should be included below. Take care to include all units of measurement and ensure that all tables are cited in the main text
References in the text should be presented in the Harvard system, i.e. author’s name and publication in brackets, together with page numbers, e.g.’ Previous studies on the role of job autonomy (Karasek and Theorell 1990; Wharton 1993)’. ‘As Booth (1994, p. 22) has observed’, or, in a more general reference ‘Booth (1994) appears to be saying…’.
The reference list should be in alphabetical order at the end of the paper, after the end notes, but before tables/figures. Please follow this style:
- Gezelius, S. (2007) 'Can Norms Account for Strategic Action?', Sociology 41(2): 201-18.
- Oakley, A. (2007) Fracture: Adventures of a Broken Body. Bristol: Policy Press.
In multi-authored articles, the names of all authors should be given in the reference list. In the text, if there are more than two names, give the first name and ‘et al.’.
Presentation of data:
In the case of Empirical articles, authors should include sufficient details of their method to permit readers of the article to make informed judgements of the quality and generalizability of the findings. Therefore articles should usually, as a minimum, give adequate description of sampling, method of data collection and method of data analysis.
In order to protect the identity of participants in research, authors should use pseudonyms and remove any information leading to identification of any of the individuals described in the study.
Once accepted for publication and allocated to a specific issue of the journal, the corresponding author will receive a PDF of the page proofs for checking. It is the corresponding author’s responsibility to circulate the proofs to co-authors if required.
Authors should provide their name and institution. Authors not affiliated to any institution should use ‘Independent researcher’.
On acceptance, both the Journal and the author has copyright to the published article. Therefore the author must accept that the article cannot be published elsewhere, neither electronically nor in print, without the consent of the Journal.
Authors are responsible for obtaining permission from copyright holders for reproducing any illustrations, tables, figures or lengthy quotations previously published elsewhere. The editors reserve the right to make minor modifications to the manuscript: however, the author’s ideas will be preserved and if any in-depth editing is required, it will be discussed.
The names and email addresses entered in this journal site will be used exclusively for the stated purposes of this journal and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.
