Guideline for Authors

Manuscripts should be written in simple, concise and grammatical English (Either UK or US spellings but not a mixture), within the size limits specified for each type of article, prepared according to the guidelines below. You can download the template here. The manuscripts should be written for a worldwide readership including many in non-English speaking countries. Authors whose first language is not English must have their manuscripts proofread by other colleagues.

Please follow these guidelines when preparing your manuscripts.

  • Use Times New Roman font size 12 or equivalent and single space.
  • Provide unjustified text and inactivate auto-hyphenation.
  • DO NOT embed figures, tables or any other non-textual features or footnotes in the main text body. Figures and table may be added at the end of the manuscript text.
  • Greek and other special characters may be used but these should be inserted in the text (e.g., using the Symbol menu in Microsoft Word) and not by changing English characters into Symbol font which may be lost during subsequent file processing. DO NOT USE ‘SYMBOL’ FONT. However, if you are unable to reproduce a particular special character, please type out the name in full.

The manuscripts should be prepared and submitted using any of the following file formats:

  • Microsoft Word (.doc)(any recent version)
  • PDF (.pdf)
  • Rich Text Format (.rtf)
