Instructions to authors and publication guidelines
Articles should be submitted electronically. The following details should be provided: author’s surname; type of word processing document and the file name. Use A4-size formatting, 1.5 spacing and margins of 30mm. The first page should contain the title with the name and complete address of the author to whom correspondence is to be sent. The title, which should be concise but sufficiently informative for information retrieval purposes, should appear on the second page without the names of the authors. Articles should not exceed 20 pages. Read More
The text of the manuscript should be in English and should be preceded by an English abstract of about 200 words.
Tables should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals (Table 1) and should bear a short yet adequate descriptive title. Footnotes to tables should be designated by lower-case letters appearing as superscript to the appropriate entries. Tables should be presented on separate sheets, grouped together at the end of the manuscript. Their approximate positions in the text should be indicated.
Mathematical notations should be selected so as to simplify the typesetting process. Authors should attempt to make mathematical expressions in the body of the text as simple as possible. Greek letters and unusual symbols (if handwritten) must be labelled when they first appear in the manuscript, as well as the subscript ‘oh’ (as distinguished from the number ‘zero’).
Illustrations should be prepared on separate A4 pages. Authors should use dedicated graphical software giving uniform lines and lettering of a size which will be clearly legible after reduction. Freehand or typewritten lettering and lines are not acceptable. Authors are requested to pay particular attention to the proportions of illustrations so that they can be accommodated in single (86 mm) or double (179 mm) columns after reduction, without wastage of space. Figures should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals (Figure 1), and descriptive captions should be listed on a separate page. All illustrations should be grouped together at the end of the manuscript, and their approximate positions in the text indicated.
References: The Harvard method should be used.
References in the text. Cited information must be identified accurately. The surname(s) of the author(s), year of publication and page number(s) appear in parentheses after the quotation, for example (Coetzee, 1986: 2-5), (Brown & Jones, 1986: 2-5). Omit the page number(s) if the entire publication is referred to, for example (Berger, 1994). In works by three or more authors the surnames of all the authors should be given in the first reference to such a work, for example ‘A recent study (Jones, Smith, Boren & White, 1993) shows …’ In later references to this work only the first author’s name is given, and the abbreviation et al., a comma and the year of publication. For example: (Jones et al., 1993).
References at the end of the manuscript. More details about sources referred to in the text must appear at the end of the manuscript under the caption ‘References’. Sources must be arranged alphabetically according to the surnames of the first author. If more than one publication by the same author(s) appear in one year they must be distinguished by an a, b, etc., for example 1981a, 1981b.
