I. TEXT STYLE
The manuscript should be written in English.
The manuscript should be between 5,000 to 10,000 words in length, including references, appendices, tables and figures. (Effective from the 2017 July Issue, Book Review or Research Report submissions must be between 1,000 to 2,000 words.)
All pieces must be encoded in a Microsoft Word file, 1.5-spaced, in Times New Roman, Font Size 12.
The Journal uses US spelling, and the author should therefore follow the latest edition of the Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.
In general, terms should not be abbreviated unless they are used repeatedly and the abbreviation is helpful to the reader. Initially use the word in full, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses. Thereafter use the abbreviation only.
6. Sections, Tables and Figures
Sections and sub-sections should be divided by “I, 1.1., 1.1.1.” And tables and figures should be numbered by <Table 1>, <Figure 1>. The Journal does not accept color figures. Figures should be submitted in black and white only.
References should be in Roman script and placed at the end of the manuscript.
II. FOOTNOTES AND CITATIONS
Notes should be kept to a minimum and numbered consecutively throughout the manuscript. Notes should be included as footnotes, and not as endnotes. Footnotes with more than 5 lines will be inserted into the text.
2. Citations in the Text
All source references are to be identified at the appropriate point in the text by the last name of the author, year of publication and pagination where needed. Identify subsequent citations of the same source in the same way as the first. Examples follow:
● If author’s name is in the text, follow it with year in parentheses.
● Pagination follows year of publication after a colon.

● If author’s name is not in the text, insert, in parentheses, the last name and year.
